Dynamic credit risk scoring with in-season smallholder crop and operations monitoring
Host institution: ICRISAT / agCelerant-Senegal, Dakar
Supervisors: Pierre C. Sibiry Traore / Daniel Annerose
The agCelerantTM digital smallholder value chain orchestration platform implements innovative approaches to agricultural risk management, such as the AIRMAPTM service on Agricultural Investment Risk Mapping and Profiling. AIRMAPTM aims, inter alia, to assist financial service providers in decreasing their cash-out when lending to smallholder farmers or cooperatives. This internship will leverage risk scoring approaches with digital tools to track the performance of smallholder loans and optimize the disbursement thereof, contributing to NADiRA and to the CASCAID 2.0 (CCAFS) project.
Digital tools de-risk the provision of agricultural credit to smallholders through space-time disaggregation. Proposed internship topics for the AIMS-NEI Mathematical Sciences for Climate Resilience (MS4CR) Internship Program – P.C.S. Traoré, December 2020 (contd)
