Summary

Despite strong growth in Kenya’s mango subsector, there is scant documentation of the financial performance of the value chain. One major challenge for financial intervention in the sector is limited information on the financial needs of small-holder farmers, leading to low engagement by financial institutions, and a lack of optimisation of mango value chain functionalities through provision of required finance.

To respond to existing information asymmetries and low levels of access to appropriate financing, Financial Sector Deepening Kenya (FSDK) commissioned this study of the mango value chain in Kenya’s Lower Eastern region. FSDK’s aim was to stimulate the crowding in of finance by raising awareness of financing opportunities in existing and potential financiers, and to increase access to finance for actors within the chain.
