Amret - Cambodia: Project Results and Lessons
This is part of AgriFin’s collection of resources which include brief technical notes, lessons learned reports, and articles examining a broad range of topics related to sustainable agricultural finance.
The objective of AgriFin’s partnership with Amret was to support the establishment of an agricultural lending unit at Amret’s head office and strengthen the institution’s capacity to serve a wide range of agricultural clients in Cambodia. The project focused on three key components: developing the agricultural lending skills of Amret’s staff; designing new loan products to respond to farmers with larger financing needs; and enhancing Amret’s service delivery to reach remote farmers and rural populations.
This document summarizes the initial results and lessons learned from the project, contributing to an improved understanding of the opportunities and challenges that financial institutions may face when expanding their services to agricultural sectors.
