CommCare for Agricultural Finance

The explosion of microfinance and insurance institutions (MFIs) has provided alternative sources to capital and security for small-scale farmers. Microfinance and insurance allow the agricultural community to reduce the risk of their investments, as well as provide the growth capital needed to thrive.

However, while micro-finance and insurance has allowed for farmers to increase their yields through new investments, the penetration rates to extremely rural rates, where capital and risk hedging is needed most, still lag behind other geographies. Between complex dataflows and poor infrastructures leading to impossible demands on finance, insurance, and credit officers, only robust, off-grid IT solutions can help expand financial tools to the millions that require them to help expand their businesses.
