Impact of team Rabobank ’16-’17: mOOvement

We celebrate the success of former Partnership Verkiezing ’16-’17 team Rabobank. Their project mOOvement enables farmers in Kenya to (GPS) track their cows, which qualifies them for Rabobank’s microcredit loans.

How does it feel to do something good? To work on a project that you know will better the lives of people and make the world a better place? Don’t we all have this desire? Getting caught up in the daily routine often prevents us from thinking ‘outside the box’. On May 9th, 10 teams from large organisations presented how they stepped out of their professional routine and worked hard for 8 months to create a sustainable business-case that betters many lives, here in the Netherlands and the rest of the world. Watch the video and see for yourself.

FMO – Access to Finance for Smallholder farmers – Creating Your Own Credit Score



Team FMO:
Corianne van Veen, Lonneke Notenboom, Claire Nyambori, Michelle Munteanu

Smallholder farmers in Kenya often face difficulties obtaining a loan to support their businesses because they lack the credit history and collateral necessary to gain the trust of financial institutions. We seek to bridge this credit gap by creating an alternative credit score. This is based on data collected through participation in online financial and entrepreneurial training and additional personal and farming data. This ‘new’ credit score will lead to better-informed lending decisions for smallholders farmers.
