A Year in the Lives of Smallholder Families: Insights from Mozambique, Tanzania, and Pakistan.

Join CGAP for an event on February 25 to learn and discuss the results of a year-long financial diaries study with smallholder households.

How do the estimated 500 million smallholder households worldwide manage their money and what kind of financial services would better serve this important group?

simon Nguye Thanks Mr. Wim. Smallholder agriculture continue to play a critical role in Tanzania agriculture. However contribution of small holder farming and agriculture have remained limited because of limited access to financial services has led to lack of funds for farm investment, poor post harvest management and inability of better access to markets and risk management. Also the situation has led to vulnerability of agriculture to climate change thus leading to longer term food insecurity in some parts of the country especially the central and north west parts of the country.

Tom Ole Sikar This is novel. First time such a comprehensive study has been undertaken. For sure this will provide good opportunities to co-create solutions to increase access to finance.
