    • What are the risks and how can these be addressed;
    • How can the loan be paid given the risks;
    • How to bring individual farmers (those who are not members of organized farmers groups) in the value chain.
    • In financing value chain, a financial institution needs to have a good handle and understanding of the issues related to the different blocks in the chain; and come up with mitigating measures to address the risks.
    Value Chain Financing Multi-Stakeholder Conference LBP Diosdado Macapagal Hall April 12, 2011 Issues on VCF : A GFI perspective
    • Technical capability of farmers to produce commodities at the standard required by the buyer. Issue on ensuring the use of quality seeds and good production practices come into play.
    • Commitment to volume and production schedule requirement of the buyers/processors. Producers need to calendar farm production (if commodity production cycle allows) in order to meet the requirements of the buyer.
    • Capability of farmers to negotiate . Farmers need to have access to market and other information (e.g. costing) which will allow them to negotiate with potential buyers.
    Value Chain Financing Multi-Stakeholder Conference LBP Diosdado Macapagal Hall April 12, 2011 Issues and Challenges in VCF - Producer Side
    • Capability of farmers to negotiate . Farmers need to have access to market information, and other information (e.g. costing) which will allow them to negotiate with potential buyers.
    • In the FSCP of LBP, anchor firms are asked to sign a production, technical and marketing agreement (PTMA) with the agricultural producers. In the PTMA, all the identified concerns are addressed. In many cases, anchor firms are tapped to be part in coming up with solutions on the concerns of financial institution.
    Value Chain Financing Multi-Stakeholder Conference LBP Diosdado Macapagal Hall April 12, 2011 Issues and Challenges in VCF - Producer Side
    • Financing individual farmers who are not members of organized farmers groups. New lending modalities need to be introduced to accommodate individual farmers (micro agri, household cash flow lending, tapping new conduits etc).
    • Credit evaluation . Financing agri production projects will require a good understanding of the production cycle of a particular commodity.
    • Collatera l. In the absence of collateral, financial institutions need to consider credit enhancements such as guarantees and market contracts as risk mitigants.
    Value Chain Financing Multi-Stakeholder Conference LBP Diosdado Macapagal Hall April 12, 2011 Issues and Challenges in VCF - Producer Side
    • Project evaluation . Need to match operational capacities with sources of raw materials. To ensure optimal use of project assets, there is a need to be assured of the sources of raw materials.
    • Local infrastructure support . Many processors are constrained to expand sources of production because of poor infrastructure support (e.g farm to market roads).
    • Incentives for participation. Capacity to expand and increase level of operation should be incentive enough. Whatever additional incentive that can be given should be a bonus.
    • Market- need to ensure that there is a market for the products of the processors.
