Rural Finance Policy

This new IFAD Rural Finance Policy builds on, updates and supersedes the IFAD Rural Finance Policy of 2000, responding to the recommendations made in the corporatelevel evaluation of 2006. It incorporates the major thrusts of the earlier policy and offers a framework for IFAD’s rural finance portfolio. The new policy provides the guiding principles for rural finance operations at the three levels of intervention – micro, meso and macro – and gives further detail for IFAD’s governing bodies, development partners and the broader public on the Fund’s approach to rural finance.
