Access to finance challenge is really a topic that needs to be taken into consideration. Like here in Kenya we had an opportunity to visit a group of farmers who grow coffee. The soil there is fertile there is adequate rainfall but one thing is lacking CAPITAL. They claim to be discouraged by the infestation of pests and diseases for their coffee and they lack enough finances to purchase fertilizers to prevent the spread of disease. Some of the farmers threatened to even cut down the coffee trees saying that it brings more loss to them than the profits they get. So, what if we had a mechanism that could come between farmers and lending institutions and provide financial help to farmers when they need this help most. For sure we will see a huge increase in coffee supply in the market.
