GIRSAL’s core objective is to de-risk agribusiness financing by Ghanaian financial institutions, and thereby increase lending to the agricultural sector.
We achieve our objective through 4 inter-related pillars which are
- Agricultural Credit Risk Guarantee Facility to de-risk and provide an incentive to financial institutions to lend more to the agricultural sector. Learn More
- Technical Assistance to financial institutions to understand the agricultural sector better; and to agribusinesses to deploy best practices, minimize their risk and develop bankable business proposals likely to be financed by financial institutions. Learn More
- Bank rating facility through which we recognize and award financial institutions and other stakeholders lending more to agriculture and making an impact through an annual award ceremony.
- Provision of agricultural information resources through the GIRSAL Agribusiness Knowledge Portal designed to assist the staff of financial institutions as a reference point for technical information during agricultural loan initiation and assessment.
