How do we master the challenges that face financing agricultural producers?

almaty-mk-110x72Michael Kortenbusch, General Director of Business & Finance Consulting, delivered an inspiring speech to more than 100 representatives of microfinance institutions, investors and authorities, in which he shared international experiences of how to successfully respond to the three key challenges in agricultural financing.

  • how to gain an understanding of the market?
  • how to measure and mitigate risks?
  • how to improve operational efficiency?


Effective solutions to these challenges, which have been successfully applied in Central Asia, the Caucasus and Turkey, were presented to the audience, before concluding with BFC’s key message:

If you know how agriculture works, then financing it will appear far less daunting than it may seem from the outside.
