Enabling the Business of Agriculture

Accessing finance

The accessing finance indicator measures laws and regulations on the use of warehouse receipts as collateral to obtain credit, as well as key aspects related to financial inclusion. Farmers need access to credit to purchase inputs such as seed and fertilizer, as well as to finance harvesting, processing and transporting operations. For domestic farmers who may not have traditional immovable collateral, warehouse receipt financing can be an effective tool to access credit.
