5 Section 2: Changing landscape in the agriculture sector: creates opportunity for Africa

6 Prices of agricultural Commodities at Key points in the value chain
The role of Market information in banking product development and offering Market Information Plays a leading role in the Banks product development and offering; Prices of agricultural Commodities at Key points in the value chain Reliable Historical data gives an indication of future price movements and demand Data on movement of prices and demand in agricultural commodities forms a strong basis in product development and offering

7 Changing landscape in the global agriculture sector
Some key trends Global consumption of food & livestock to increase significantly by 2019 (by about 50% for developing countries) Food prices increases (mainly due to increase in energy price) Global food inflation increased sharply from (mainly for low and low-middle- income countries) Africa realizing significant annual growth: > 5% GDP growth Agricultural yields stagnated in spite of average per capita production increase Opportunities Africa has the potential to increase production and productivity to meet growing demand food demand Establish functional and more lucrative supply chains Agric commodity export opportunities for Africa Import substitution that will arise from increasingly competitive African agribusinesses. Sustained economic growth has resulted in a sea-change in patterns of demand for food on the African continent. It is fair to say that Most of Africa’s agricultural products are still kept out of the developed country export markets as a result of tariff and no-tariff barriers, farm subsidies and the high cost of exporting out of Africa because of poor infrastructure; We are however witnessing Africans urbanising at a rapid rate; we see woman’s income raising faster than the average resulting in woman increasingly making independent purchasing decisions. The result has been a shift in buying patterns, resulting in a rise of more modern supply chains that increasingly reach consumers through the medium of supermarkets.

15 Country Specific financing
Agricultural Production Crops Agricultural production Livestock &poultry Marketing including commodity trade Processing and light industries

16 Success factors and key constraints
Section 5 Success factors and key constraints

17 Some success factors Specialized Agricultural Banking: products and expertise Structured finance approach: Structured finance approach Self-liquidating and cash flow based finance Leverage on partnerships: lead firms, NGOs, etc Legally binding contracts. e.g. tripartite agreements, TA provision agreement and joint liability guarantee Increasing production efficiencies: Agronomy services and crop husbandry GIS mapping and soil testing Agricultural production manual & guidelines Mechanization: partnership with John Deere for the provision of agricultural equipment. Upgrading the value chains. Example, enabling farmers access to market through partnership with WFP and large domestic, regional and international agribusiness Cross selling opportunity: 55,000 smallholder farmers accessing finance through this scheme. How to bank them?

18 Some key constraints Maximizing the value chain finance concept in a context where: Inexistent/ underdeveloped value chains (mainly food crops) Loans are generally high volumes but relative small values Weak CBOs (producer groups, associations and co-operatives) Climate change: heavy reliance on rain fed agriculture Unorganised supply and demand High post harvest losses Erratic production due to weather shocks and seasonality High transaction costs resulting from information asymmetry and poor information flow. (adverse selection and moral hazard) Weak systems for contract enforcement (legally binding contracts) Lack of legislation and/or regulations suitable to agriculture financial intermediation (e.g. commodity finance supporting instruments)

19 MIS requirements for appropriate Agric-financing
Agricultural produce pricing Farm gate prices Wholesale prices Export / main off taker prices Quantities and Quality Price and quantity movements over time Expected costs involved Seasonality of crops and regional differences Storage and processing capacities availability and location Availability of markets and major market players Ease of delivery to markets

20 Section 5 Key message

21 Key messages for conducive policy
Addressing market failures: information asymmetry Appropriate policies and regulations Avoid market distorting policies. e.g. government funding schemes, marketing and price control, etc Strengthen CBOs (producer groups, associations and co-operatives) to enable access to farmers Build climate change resilience and adaptation: e.g. investment in small and medium scale irrigation systems, Investing in public goods and infrastructures Adopting policies and strategies to re-risk agriculture sector: e.g. risk sharing and price hedging Harnessing legal systems for contract enforcement Harnessing legislation and/or regulations suitable to agriculture financial intermediation (e.g. commodity finance supporting instruments)
