Another great turn out at the 2nd FinTech4AG event that took place on the 29th of September! About 100 people were in attendance from the Finance,Technology and Agricultural sectors.
The 2nd Fintech4AG meetup organized by UNCDF MM4P, CGAP – Consultative Group to Assist the Poor and Laboremus Uganda focused on how FinTechs can unlock access to financial services for smallholder farmers in Uganda. Below is a news clip with representatives from the partners discussing the reason behind the event, which is to bring the various players in the financial, agricultural and technology sectors together.
As stated by Nathan Were (CGAP):
“we bring these findings in the room such that people who are innovative are able to see the extent of the problem, the needs that are available within the agricultural space and start thinking about what kind of innovations can tackle those problems. When these are developed, we take them to the farmers.”
