Climate Smart Agriculture Market Study in Orinoquia Region
Climate smart agriculture (CSA) represents a great opportunity to profitably improve the sustainability of agriculture. However, financing from local banks for agricultural producers generally, and CSA specifically, remains limited. In this context, the International Finance Corporation (IFC) has hired UNIQUE to conduct CSA market studies in Colombia. The purpose of the market studies is to identify profitable business models and recommend credit products that the IFC can use to support investment in these models. UNIQUE is assessing different client segments, developing cashflow projection models for CSA models, and creating loan products to suit investment.
