Survey On Agri-Lending by RBs

To all RBAP members:

The Rural Bankers Association of the Philippines (RBAP), the Rural Bankers
Research & Development Foundation, Inc. (RBRDFI) and the Agricultural
Guarantee Fund Pool (AGFP) will undertake a joint “capacity building”
activity through the Guarantee Partner Support Program (GPSP).

This capacity building initiative is in line with the concern that few
rural banks lack confidence to provide agricultural loans to small farmers
and fisher folks. Thus, it is envisioned that a greater understanding on
agri-lending among banks through GPSP will increase credit access.

Your participation to this survey will help us develop an appropriate
training program that will enhance understanding on the peculiarities of
agricultural lending products, and in order to address the gap in
agricultural lending.

We encourage the President or Chief Executive to accomplish this survey.
