Impact assessment showed role of credit in improving livelihoods of farmers, fisherfolk
MetadataShow full item record
Inadequate capital is a common constraint among small-scale farmers and fisherfolk. Monetary problems also limit their households to pursue other livelihood activities that could augment the family income. To address these financing needs, the Agricultural Credit Policy Council (ACPC), through the People’s Credit and Finance Corporation (PCFC), implemented the program, Agricultural Microfinance Program (AMP) for Small Farmers and Fisherfolk and their Households. Since 2009, the program has provided credit funds to qualified borrower organizations for re-lending to small farmers and fisherfolk households and organizations.
