Submitted by on Wed, 11/20/2019 - 09:21

The 2019 Agricultural Finance Yearbook is the ninth edition in the series and offers in-depth analysis of the trends in the sector performance, with particular emphasis on interventions to promote agro-industrialization. As in previous Agricultural Finance Yearbooks (AFYBs), the analysis tracks new advances to the agricultural sector rather than the outstanding portfolio by Regulated Financial Institutions (RFIs). This approach provides a more dynamic view of the developments in lending to the sector.

In Uganda’s agriculture sector, farmers are currently using the power of mobile to transact and receive extension services.
