ADVANCING FINANCIAL INCLUSION FOR SMALLHOLDER HOUSEHOLDS IN MOZAMBIQUE

Any serious effort to advance financial inclusion in Mozambique must put this segment of the population centre stage.

FSDMoç has partnered with CGAP, the Consultative Group to Assist the Poorest, to shed light on the opportunities to advance financial inclusion to Mozambique’s rural poor. In 2016, FSDMoç and CGAP, launched the National Survey and Segmentation of Smallholder Households in Mozambique, a study

undertaken by CGAP in collaboration with the Instituto Nacional de Estatística (INE), as well as CGAP’s financial diaries of smallholder households in a district of Nampula Province The present report brings together key findings from those two studies with information from other sources, in particular the 2014 Finscope study into Access to Finance, as well as data from INE and the Banco de Moçambique. It also builds on the FinMark Trust’s 2012 report on the Status of Agricultural and Rural Finance in Mozambique.
