Financial Sector Deepening (FSD)
Financial Sector Deepening (FSD) is an independent Trust established to support the development of inclusive financial markets in Kenya

FSD Kenya in partnership with USAID’s Financial Inclusion for Rural Microenterprises (FIRM) has set up the Value Chain Finance Centre (VCFC) to strengthen agricultural value chains through developing appropriate and sustainable finance.
The strategy for the Centre is based on rigorous quantitative value chain research and analysis that is intended to address the following three key outputs:

  1. Identification and prioritization of viable opportunities for finance.
  2. Collection of key information regarding income, expense and timing of cash flows of rural businesses and agribusinesses to enable more effective credit and investment risk analysis by financial providers.
  3. Identification of non-financial bottlenecks to assist the redirection of complementary technical assistance already at play in the chain to improve the competitiveness of agriculture value chains, making finance in whatever form more effective and reducing.
