Promoting Access to Rural Financial Services in Malawi
FARMSE is a seven-year development programme financed by the Malawi government, the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), and the private sector, running from 2018 to 2025. The programme works to support the graduation of poor Malawians along the poverty spectrum from ultra-poor to a productive pathway on a sustainable basis. The programme also supports household economic development through access to financial services that are appropriate to each socio-economic level of poverty including ultrapoor, poor but food secure, vulnerable to poverty, and resilient to poverty.
