Who will benefit from this work?
The ADAPTA pilot will support smallholder farmers (<5 acres) and Agri-SMEs in Kenya by providing the right type of lending solutions together with climate adaptation solutions that reduce their risk profile and enable them to invest and raise their profitability. Women, youth, and vulnerable rural farming communities will be targeted to improve their farms' resilience and productivity.
Financial institutions will also benefit from ADAPTA's innovative credit assessment and climate scoring model. ADAPTA will make its novel climate and credit underwriting process publicly available to commercial banks and non-bank financial intermediaries so that they can proactively manage risks and lend more to the sector. If risks can be managed more effectively, the share of loans to the agriculture sector in East Africa should rise (currently less than 5% of total bank loans).
