Agri-Business Value Chain Activities

International Finance Corporation (IFC)

A study of a range of agri-business / commodity value chains was undertaken during the years 2005-07 for the International Finance Corporation (IFC) in Mindanao (Philippines), Aceh, SE Sulaweisi and the Eastern Provinces of Indonesia to identify suitable IFC program interventions.


In 2007 the need for rural finance and options to provide finance within Agri-business value chains was provided to the AusAID’s Cambodia Value Chain Program. This required an assessment of the capacity and resource needs of potential Participating Finance Institutions (Microfinance and Commercial Banks) to provide a wider range of more suitable financial products and services to agribusinesses from smallholder rice farmers to traders, processors and domestic / export marketing companies.
