In September 2012, the Citi Foundation and the Rainforest Alliance undertook Farmer Bankability and Sustainable Finance: Farm-level Metrics that Matter, a study designed to better understand farmer capacity and performance with regard to financial administration, as well as any bankability benefits associated with Rainforest Alliance certification. Our primary objectives in undertaking this research are:
1. To better inform technical assistance packages for producers and producer organizations and to help improve farmer financial administration
2. To encourage farmers to regularly track information that is needed to create and update producer and SME financial and production profiles
3. To facilitate producers’ access to finance
