Speaker: Roberto Saldaña Rosas, Banamex, Mexico
Supply chain finance has played an important role in easing liquidity constraints and improving the competitiveness of the grains sector in Mexico—one of the world's largest grain producers. This type of financing increases access to credit for producers, enhances the reliability of supply for buyers, and serves as a risk management mechanism for financial institutions.
To learn more about how this works in practice, in January 2014, we invited Mr. Roberto Saldaña Rosas, Agribusiness Coordinator at Banamex, a Mexican subsidiary of Citigroup, to share lessons learned from their experience in financing Mexico's grain supply chains over the past eight years. Mr. Rosas discussed the key features of Banamex's financing model, the unique context in which the bank operates, and how it works to manage risk by building relationships with various actors along the supply chain.
