Opportunity International Bank Malawi is working with Opportunity International and Catholic Relief Services to provide groundnut, soybean, and orange-fleshed sweet potato farmers in Malawi with financial and banking services. To make these services affordable and ensure loan repayment, the project will train groups of farmers on good agricultural practices.
Outcome: 10,000 smallholder farmers will be trained, 5,000 farmers will receive loans and mobile money services, and 7,000 smallholder farmers will open savings accounts. No less than 30 percent of the trainings and financial services will directly benefit women.
