Discussion in this session focuses on innovative financing mechanisms, including emerging ICT platforms and fintech, to extend credit and banking services to small and dispersed borrowers, i.e., agripreneurs and SMEs for farm and nonfarm operations in rural areas. The panelists explore how they see the future and what is required from the public sector in terms of enabling policies and creating a level playing field to foster and expand pro-farmer smart financing options and opportunities.
