Young Expert at Financial Access - Indonesia
YEP period 2019 - 2021, batch 17

YEP Role

I will be working on a diverse set of projects across Indonesia and Vietnam. The projects are aimed at improving access to finance for small holder farmers by clearly identifying and mitigating the main financial and environmental risks associated with farmers. I will be working closely with a variety of partners focused on environmental risk, capacity building and training to ensure we employ a holistic approach to help small holder in a sustainable way. We therefore not only enable farmers to be included into the financial system, we also guarantee that this happens in an environmentally sustainable manner.
