The Firm to Farm Finance (F2FF) toolkit aims to codify and use the learning of iDE-Bangladesh’s successful rural business credit (RBC) pilot experience to inform the research and development of innovative and promising access to finance solutions for low-income households and communities. The toolkit provides step-by-step guidance on how to apply the Human Centered Design (HCD) framework and tailor it for use in selecting and commercializing feasible, viable and desirable financial products and service models to sustainably reach low-income households and communities with efficient, scalable strategies for inclusive finance.

The Firm to Farm Finance (F2FF) activity was funded by USAID through the FHI 360-managed FIELD-Support LWA and implemented by iDE-Bangladesh with the goal of documenting, optimizing and disseminating information about an innovative and promising commercial RBC model, which was developed and piloted in Bangladesh in 2010 by iDE-Bangladesh and the United Leasing Company Ltd. (ULC).
