How big data and data science are changing smallholder finance

Source: Initiative for Smallholder Finance


The enormous gap between the supply and demand of formal credit for smallholder farmers is caused, in part, by the extreme lack of information available to lenders on potential borrowers. The lack of information create risks for financial institutions and limits their willingness to lend to smallholder farmers and other “thin file” borrowers in developing countries.

New research from the Initiative for Smallholder Finance explores how innovative lenders are using new data sources and analytics to assess the creditworthiness of borrowers. From mobile phone usage data to e-wallet data, lenders are experimenting with a variety of approaches to unlock credit in underserved markets in the developing world.


While credit scoring models that use alternative data are still new in the agriculture sector, our research on several trends suggests that this market will soon be better served – than

Abdul R Kagonji Thank you Lisette for such a wonderful note.

Joseph Sekiku Most lenders sit in their offices and wait for customers to find them, it is a high time they moved out to the "fields" to explore who wantsthe credit. They too need to provide additional support services by advising, training and where possible, in project management, financial management, business plan writing, Monitoring and evaluation... and above all, have to "walk with" the borrowers throughout the lifespan of his business.

Calculating the Cost of Risk

The first step in Risk Management is to identify the risks facing your company.

Risk comes in many forms, and can be Financial (credit, liquidity & cash flow, etc.), Strategic (competition, industry changes, etc.), Operational (supply chain, regulation, etc.) and Hazard (natural catastrophe, stock, equipment and properties).

Some of these risks are insurable, but many aren't.

By using tried and tested techniques you can quickly get a broad sense of how much risk might be costing your company, even if you have never had a loss.

Contact us to find out how we can give you the tools to identify, monitor, manage and report risk in your company.
