Smallholder rep. explains what’s wrong with development finance

Short anecdote about development finance told by smallholder representative Zwide Jere during Global Landscapes Forum: The Investment Case 2016 in London. Zwide Jere is the Managing Director of Total LandCare, improving access to finance and technology for smallholders in Southern and Eastern Africa. Zwide has 30 years of experience working with rural communities in partnership with government, non-governmental and private sector organizations. This gives him a unique privilege in handling issues that cut across these sectors. His strong capability is assessing and analyzing issues/problems of watersheds and resolving conflicts arising from resource uses by the different groups will add value to the planned program.http://www.landscapes.org/
