Abstract(s) :

(Anglais) Attracting funding for the agricultural sector is a major challenge but a necessity for agricultural growth that generally contributes to economic growth through its linkage to other sectors. Today, some microfinance investment vehicles (MIVs) have started to invest in farmer organizations (FOs) through a new mechanism that is not well documented. This paper aims to better understand this promising mechanism and to better apprehend the ideal profile that FOs should present in order to be funded by such MIVs. Using a dataset of 406 observations as well as probit and panel regressions, we show that both social and financial indicators of FOs matter when analyzing the probability to be funded by a MIV. However, when FOs are selected, our results highlight that only financial indicators influence the loan conditions.
