The work on this guide is part of a wider agenda promoted by the APF Agri-Hub Uganda. Through multi-stakeholder collaboration APF members seek to foster a better understanding of the financial services landscape and an appropriate design of interventions informed by realities of the ground. This includes regular financial market place events to bring together farmers, financial service providers and intermediaries. Findings and lessons are used to engage with government and civil society actors responsible for deepening financial services to smallholder actors. We welcome suggestions and comments to improve this guide.
