Role of Government in Rural and Agri-Finance: Transitioning to private sector involvement

Published on

June 16, 2020

The seventeenth Briefing Note in this series from ISF Advisors builds on previous analysis of the natural stages of agricultural finance and interrogates more deeply the transition that countries make from government-led to more bank-led agricultural finance.

By adding the historical experiences of Mexico, Turkey, and Uganda (as well as other specific initiatives in other countries around the world) to past research by ISF Advisors into the United States, Germany, and South Korea, we gain a greater understanding into the unique approaches that different countries have taken to make this transition.

While these approaches are heavily influenced by each country’s macro-level approach to managing the economy, analysis shows the importance of meso-level enablers and more direct micro-level interventions. As we unpack government actions into these different levels and acknowledge the dynamic interplay between the agricultural and finance sides of the market we create a more systemic view of these historical experiences.
