MercyCorps worked to strengthen the resilience of agro-pastoralists in Mali and Niger, by expanding their access to formal financial services. The project educated agro-pastoralist men and women so that they can make informed decisions about their household finances and better manage risk. This unlocked access to new credit options, including warehouse credit for farmers and tailored credit products for women’s groups. Using mobile banking and other technologies, the project aimed to bring 50,000 agro-pastoralists into the formal financial market. Click here to download the solution statement.
