Improving financial inclusion of smallholder farmers, October 2015
The international conference Improving Financial Inclusion of Smallholder Farmers, organised by Fondazione Giordano Dell'Amore will take place October 15th and 16th, 2015 in Milan, Italy.
Smallholders generally constitute the vast majority of farmers in most countries, and they account for 60% of global agriculture and provide up to 80% of food in developing countries. Despite their socio-economic importance, smallholder farmers represent the largest share of the developing world's undernourished. Facilitating access to appropriate financial products can improve their productivity, livelihood and food security; reduce risks; smooth cyclical cash flows; and help them manage their farm as a viable business. Through 3 plenary sessions and 9 workshops, over 30 international speakers will reflect and discuss on the development of microfinance solutions to improve financial inclusion of smallholder farmers.
Participation to the Conference is free of charge but registration is compulsory.
