Challenge

Managing business and personal finances can be an immense challenge for rural farmers, whose financial fortunes are frequently determined by forces beyond their control, such as weather and crop prices. Providing capital injections and rainfall insurance can help stimulate more productive investment in agriculture. This intervention targets 470 maize farmers in northern Ghana.

Solution

Maize farmers will be provided with capital for their farms, including fertilizer, seeds, tools, and labor. Farmers will also receive rainfall insurance.

Long-Term Impact

Protected from weather shocks and provided with capital, farmers make productive investments in their maize farms.
