Moving Forward with Standard Bank

In 2011, TechnoServe partnered with Standard Bank to help farmers in the Mutale area address challenges with loan repayment. Our work focuses on addressing challenges faced by farmers by helping them to improve their business and technical skills, create sustainable relationships with the financial services sector and improve access to financial services and diverse markets. Progress has been made: All farmers in the program are now employing good agricultural practices, have commercially compliant records and accounts, and are successfully supplying Tiger Brands as well as other formal markets.
