This presentation was delivered by Antonio Abufele, Regional Vice President of Business Development of Banco Continental, Honduras at the AgriFin Financing Agriculture Forum 2015. Banco Continental presents their highly innovative new product, designed to enable the financing of coffee tree planting. The product was developed in light of the devastation caused by the outbreak of the La roja coffee disease in Honduras and the subsequent need for replanting. Banco Continental worked closely with leading value chain actors in the Honduran coffee sector, and with the regulatory authorities, to design a long term lending product to support loans to farmers for replanting.
