OPM contact

OPM was contracted as the Credit Fund Facilitator for a Credit Facility for Contracted Small-Scale Production in Zambia. The assignment entailed supporting the Development Bank of Zambia (DBZ) in preparing the design of the facility, including identifying the parameters for eligibility of participating commercial banks and other financial institutions that would on-lend to small- to medium-scale contract farming companies, in developing the appropriate monitoring and evaluation framework, and in providing capacity-building support to partner banks, agro-businesses and to the DBZ. The project was one of the five components of the Rural Finance Programme in Zambia, funded by the International Fund for Agricultural Development.
