Peter commented on Modern farmer financing for irrigation solutions

Dear Niels,
Thanks a lot for sending us your comments. With regard to social and environmental impact, the conversion from rain-fed agriculture to irrigation gives a production increment of at least 60% or more, depending on the crop. Adopting irrigation practices will enable farmers to guarantee a stable production during rainy season or even shift their production process from the rainy season to the dry season, which will make farmers resilient to the effects of climate change and at the same time increase their income by obtaining higher market prices in the off season (>2 times higher). We have 46 branches and over 20,000 existing clients spread throughout Uganda which makes us very rooted in reaching farmers. Indeed the flexible repayment schemes is very important to reach large numbers of farmers. That is exactly the core of the proposed solution, piloting customized payplans that will allow flexible installments based on seasonality. 
Please reach out to us when travelling to Uganda!
