With more than 66 per cent of Nepalese dependent on agriculture, the introduction of digital financial services (DFS) offerings in the agriculture sector became essential for not only expanding the ecosystem of DFS but also to ensure progressive growth of access to finance in rural areas.

The UNCDF partnership with Prabhu Management on dairy digitalization is a prime example of an innovative and sustainable solution in the value chain benefiting various stakeholders in rural areas who were previously deprived of accessible financial services. It serves as an excellent model for digitalization of other value chains in the agriculture sector, offering rich insights and learnings for reaching out to small-holder farmers and rural entrepreneurs.
