Financing Missing Middle Agri-businesses – MMFM & Moving Frontiers
Financing Missing Middle Agri-businesses in Kenya and Uganda
Supported by Small Foundation, this research was a collaborative effort of Match Maker Fund Management, SME Impact Fund (SIF), Moving Frontiers, Smart Regional Consultants and Eye Opener Works.
This feasibility study was conducted to evaluate the possibility of SIF expanding its business model to the adjacent markets of Kenya and/or Uganda. The competitive position of SIF was mapped versus other agri-finance providers, and a survey was conducted amongst agri-businesses in both markets to assess their financing needs and bankability status.
The research provides market data beyond the ‘funding gap’ to further understand the effective demand in these regions, and detail on supply-side product offerings for agri-SMEs.
