The main focus is on the late 1970's during which time there was a steady growth and subsequent decline in the size of the lending portfolio. The review is based chiefly on Performance Audit Reports and Project Completion Reports. Because of its historical focus, the report does not discuss in detail recent developments with the credit portfolio. The evolution of the Bank policy from traditional agricultural credit portfolio to the wider arena of rural finance and the characteristics of the credit portfolio are described. An assessment of the impact of the Task Force on Bank activities in agricultural credit is provided as part of the analysis of the Bank and farm projects during the 1980s. The conclusions and recommendations focus on; reviewing objectives of the credit program, strengthening measurements and assessment of the credit projects, and reconsidering the role of rural finance in the agriculture sector strategy.
