  1. I commend ICO and CFC for their serious desire to find lasting solutions to the challenge of access to finance. I have participated in the implementation of a CFC/ICO project in Kenya that sought to establish an input credit scheme for small scale coffee farmers. It was unique since it addressed issues such as adequacy of credit, timeliness and capacity building of farmers and financial institutions to appraise and avail credit for the entire coffee production cycle. Technical support was part of the scheme too, to help farmers utilize credit properly and therefore get yields and subsequent income to repay. It was as exciting to design the financial product as it was to see the project successfully provide a solution.

    Congratulations and keep this going!

    Anthony, Nairobi
