Barriers to agriculture and enterprise finance are the result of the risks that service providers and investors usually perceive when supporting smallholder farmers, particularly women.  Some of Oxfam’s programmes have successfully increased access to financial and other services through building the capacity of communities and engaging with a network of stakeholders. By successfully influencing the stakeholders, these programmes have ensured inclusiveness in a wide range of contexts.
