ICCO Terrafina Microfinance is ICCO’s microfinance program. In this program we work in close collaboration with Rabobank Foundation, Oikocredit and Fair & Sustainable Advisory Services. ICCO Terrafina Microfinance’s support to microfinance institutions often consists of a tailor-made package of different components. The objective is to boost agriculture through microfinance to improve smallholder farmers´ livelihoods and increase food security.
ICCO Terrafina Microfinance is mainly involved in development of agricultural microfinance initiatives, such as farmer loans, warehouse receipt lending, and linking microfinance with value chains. At the same time the program works on professionalization of rural microfinance institutions to reinforce the expansion of sustainable agricultural microfinance.
Through the close collaboration with different parties, ICCO Terrafina Microfinance can microfinance institutions with a combination of technical and financial support to strengthen their organization and to develop financial services in line with the needs of specific groups of farmers and people living in rural areas.
