This study focused on Domboshava, an area in Goromonzi district of Mashonaland East province of Zimbabwe. The population of rural farmers in Domboshava is approximately www. The sample size is deemed adequate by the researchers as similar studies of related phenomena made use of sample sizes in this range such as Dondo and Shoko study, which had a sample size of rural farmers; and Masanga and Jera who had a sample size of Questionnaires and focus groups were used to gather data.

About This Item

It was also noted in the study that lending to communal farmers is a profitable business IFC, ; Kent and Poulton, Lending to Communal Farmers is a Profitable Business The study indicates that all respondents including farmers, extension officers, NGO staff, local leadership and MFIs agree that lending money to farmers by microfinance companies is a viable and profitable business as noted by Kent and Poulton , Bindu and Chigusiwa and Mago and Hofisi The study also shows that microfinance companies will benefit from this kind of investment as most rural farmers especially involved in vegetable growing are capable of paying back their loans as their income is reliable and throughout the year.

So with capital available, the assumption is that these farmers will increase production by investing in technology and new markets, especially international markets, as noted by Miller, and Mago and Hofisi In addition, the key stakeholders in the microfinance sector, such as RBZ, ZAMFI and the donor community should work towards the establishment of a credit guarantee scheme, which will go a long way in addressing the issue of collateral substitutes for lending to rural farmers.

The credit guarantee scheme when properly set-up helps to address the key challenge of lack of adequate and acceptable collateral which is prevalent among the marginalized groups who include SMEs, women, youth, rural and small holder NAAS Rating: 3. Furthermore, the government should put in place modern infrastructure to enable the production of vegetables as well as transportation of products from rural areas to markets in Zimbabwe and overseas markets.

This also includes communication between rural farmers and their consumers among other things. This is significant because rural livelihoods are dependent on this sector. It is recommended that the government should support the investment of rural farming by microfinance companies as both parties will benefit from this adventure. In addition, the government should improve the communication and transport infrastructure as the current infrastructure is dilapidated as indicated by the respondents.
