|Samenvatting||The financial sector in Mozambique is very underdeveloped especially with regards to its outreach in rural areas, mainly because of the conservative nature of banks and the expensive financial products that are inaccessible for small farmers. Through improved engagement with the banks and the development support of SACCOs (Saving and Credit Cooperatives), SNV aims to improve outreach and availability of suitable rural financial products to the sector. This will result in increased investment from producers. SNV believes access to finance and support to value chain financing is a key to poverty reduction through sustainable economic growth in production, income and employment. This report discusses the work of SNV in Mozambique, the outcome, expected impact and lessons learned.|
