Agro-MSMEs, which operate in the intersection of Agriculture and MSME sectors, can be powerful vehicles of growth in the post-pandemic environment. The CAFRAL VLP seeks to build a business case for lending profitably to the Agro-MSMEs as they hold a promise for the development of the rural economy in a sustainable and impactful manner. The program would cover policy developments and innovation in the Agro-MSME sector with some inputs on the technical aspects of agri-MSME financing.

This VLP will deal with MSME financing from three perspectives: objectives of financing, borrower categories and financed assets or targets. Broadly, following topics and issues will be covered:

      Policy and economic developments relating to agriculture, MSMEs and Agro-MSMES

     Discussions on financing MSMES for higher productivity, lower post-harvest losses, climate change adaptation, increase access to markets, exploration of new markets

      Financing traditional agri value chains: linkages with MSMEs, FPOs
