Expert Collaboration in Micro Agricultural Finance

August 5th, 2013 · No Comments

Infusion Knowledge Hub, in collaboration with Business Enterprises at University of Pretoria (Pty) Ltd and the Centre for Inclusive Banking in Africa, Economic and Management Science Faculty, University of Pretoria is embarking on the impact assessment of the Micro Agricultural Financial Institutions of South Africa (MAFISA).


The overall aim of MAFISA is to contribute to government’s commitment to reducing poverty and increasing new work opportunities, while the specific objective of MAFISA is to provide credit facilities to smallholder farmers. The beneficiaries of MAFISA are smallholder farmers and operators ‘within the entire value chain of agriculture, forestry and fisheries’.


This exciting impact assessment will include visits to beneficiary sites, in-depth analysis of existing data held by the DAFF and extensive literature and desktop research.

The team, bringing together significant names from academia, experienced evaluators, statistical experts and a competent field team kicks off this project in July 2013.
