The objective of AgriFin’s partnership with Centenary Rural Development Bank was to support the bank’s strategy of increasing finance to the agricultural sector in Uganda. The project focused primarily on three key areas: establishing an agricultural finance department to lead the strategic growth of agricultural loan portfolio; enhancing the bank’s capacity to deliver services to rural clients by developing and expanding alternative channels; and developing staff skills to enable them to serve agricultural clients more effectively. The initial results and lessons from this project are shared for the benefit other financial institutions who are seeking to expand lending to the agricultural sector in a cost-effective way.
