SCOPE OF WORK

AGRICULTURAL CREDIT TRAINING PROGRAM

BACKGROUND
The project supports a series of programmatic activities aimed at increasing awareness and access to agricultural credit in rural
communities. The proposed activities will assist in building capacity at Development Finance Institutions (DFI's) interested in
supporting the agriculture sector, while also establishing a better understanding and commitment at board and management level.

The target beneficiaries of this project will be farmers, agribusiness owners, members of District Development Assemblies (DDAs)
and Community Development Councils (CDCs), Departments of Agriculture, Irrigation and Livestock (DAIL), and Development
Finance Institutions (DFIs).

The objectives of the Program are twofold:


 To raise awareness on financial services – specifically credit - amongst relevant government authorities, farmers, community
leaders, DFIs and other stakeholders;

 To enhance the capacity of DFIs on different aspects of agricultural lending.

The followings are the main project activities:


 AMA will hold a series of awareness workshops in eight selected provinces at which representatives of DFI's will present and
provide information on their financial service offerings (with a focus on agricultural credit) to farmers and representatives of the
community.
 AMA will design and disseminate a collection of promotional materials including informational brochures on agricultural credit,
standing banners and using its existing media network to publish news, success stories and other relevant information on
agricultural credit.

 AMA will implement specific capacity building initiatives that will induce and support the entry of DFI's into agricultural
financing through structured trainings, an in-country and international study tour. This will help to equip providers of agriculture
credit to address the needs and challenges they face in the areas where they operate.

WORK BREAKDOWN STRUCTURE
Introduction

A Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) is a decomposition of all the work necessary to complete a project. A WBS is arranged in a
hierarchy and constructed to allow for clear and logical groupings, either by activities or deliverables. The WBS should represent the
work identified in the approved Project Scope Statement and serves as an early foundation for effective schedule development and
cost estimating. Project managers typically will develop a WBS as a precursor to a detailed project schedule. The WBS should be
accompanied by a WBS Dictionary, which lists and defines WBS elements.
