Making digital financial solutions relevant and accessible for Zambian smallholder farmers

MercyCorps AFA

In 2015, Mercy Corps launched the AgriFin Accelerate (AFA) Programme; a six-year, $24 million project with an ambitious goal of reaching one million farmers with digital financial services across Kenya, Tanzania and Zambia.

This blog focused on Zambia tells the story of the program between 2015 and 2019 during which AFA and a network of core partners, value added service providers and various farmer organisations in Zambia reached thousands of farmers with financial services, information and market linkages.
