Project Description

ADB's country partnership strategy for PRC (2011 2015) identifies inclusive growth as one of the three pillars in the partnership which will be supported by boosting rural livelihoods and improving access to microfinance and small and medium enterprise finance. The partnership also recognizes private sector development, knowledge solutions, capacity development, and gender equity as major drivers of change to maximize development impacts in the PRC. The proposed project will promote inclusive growth in the project area through improving rural livelihood. Agricultural productivity will be enhanced through providing financial and technical support to private agricultural enterprises and farmer cooperatives for the construction of standard production and/or processing bases and strengthening of governance and management capacity. Further development of rural financial services will expand access to finance among rural residents and agricultural enterprises. The project has significant potential for innovation and knowledge generation in agricultural and rural finance, sustainable use of water resources, poverty targeting and reduction, and scientific evaluation of development interventions. Finally, the project will promote gender equity in access to finance and management of farmer cooperatives and agricultural enterprises.
