PFL conducted the Third Annual Stakeholders Forum with the theme “AGRICULTURE FINANCING – THE KEY TO FOOD SECURITY”. The forum focused on availability of credit facilities for farmers. Thirty (30) nucleus farmers from the Northern, Upper East and Upper West regions represented 14000 farmers in 13 districts.
Resource persons from financial and Insurance institutions shared with the farmers available facilities and the processes to access key facilities. The resource persons represented the following institutions: Sinapa Aba Savings And Loans Limited, Fidelity Bank, Opportunity International, FinGAP and Ghana Agricultural Insurance.
The nucleus farmers expressed their hope that their participation in the PFL Nucleus Farmer-Outgrower Scheme will provide adequate guarantee for them to access facilities from the financial and insurance institutions
