In this short technical note Nii Simmonds, the founder and program director of Incubating Youth and Entrepreneurs in African Agribusiness at DAIN Network, considers the challenges, and opportunities, facing banks and other financial institutions wishing to expand their financing of entrepreneurial youth operating in the agricultural space. Nii draws on his background of working with young agri-entrepreneurs to explain his thoughts on how these challenges may be overcome. He considers the range of opportunities available for expanding outreach, and how youth may also make themselves more "bankable" and serviceable.
