Access to Finance in Malawi

In 2016, we evaluated the impact of the project to see if our aims had been met. This included ensuring farmers were managing their financial record-keeping at the level required to reach Fairtrade certification. We also wanted to help the businesses start conversations with potential social lenders so they could begin to understand their requirements. Finally, we believe that by improving their financial management techniques, we could help the farmers achieve higher productivity levels, and subsequently increase their income

“Financial statements are now prepared on a monthly basis. This has led to farmers knowing the financial standing of the organisation. If our association is successful, it translates to sustainability, our children will be able to benefit from the co-op too.”
