Project title: "Information transparency system as a low-cost scalable solution to farmers' access to credit and services in Ghana"

Role: Research project manager and a PhD candidate under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Robert Lensink

Consortium memembers: AgriPlace (Ghana/The Netherlands), Fidelity Bank (Ghana), Cocoa Research Institute Ghana (CRIG), and University of Ghana

This project examines whether the introduction of a farmer information platform improves cocoa farmers’ access to finance. By closing information asymmetry between financial institutions and farmers, the former is more likely to offer financial services to the latter. Technology is expected to reduce know-your-customer and transaction costs of reaching out to smallholders.
