Financial Solutions for Smallholders in Nigeria
Financial inclusion in Nigeria has been improving, with the adult population being served by financial institutions going from 30 percent in 2011 to 44 percent in 2014, according to the Global Findex. However, large segments of the population remain financially excluded. Of an estimated 15 million smallholder families in Nigeria, CGAP finds that only about 26 percent of them are financially included.
Join CGAP and partner InterMedia for a November 30 webinar to learn about the findings from our nationwide survey of smallholder households in Nigeria – the first survey of its kind in the country. Results discussed will highlight the challenges and opportunities for delivering better smallholder financial solutions grounded on new evidence.
Guest speakers Rose Goselinga, managing director of Pula Advisors, and Ernest Ihedigbo, head of the Agricultural Value Chain Finance and Investment Services team of the Nigerian Incentive-based Risk sharing System for Agricultural Lending (NIRSAL), will discuss the implications of these findings for the growing number of local initiatives that promote financial solution for the rural poor.
