Agri-Finance is a critical component of a growing and inclusive agriculture sector. The landscape in Myanmar is rapidly changing as more players enter the market. However, very few banks offer financing for farmers, particularly those who have informal or no land rights. Meanwhile, financing for agribusinesses is largely limited to small amounts that are insufficient for small and medium enterprises (SMEs) to make significant investments in their business.
