Pre-financing Migrant Remittance Flows in Support of Agricultural Development in Africa
AbstractThis paper discusses how migrant remittances (which are of large importance to many developing countries) can be used not only as a source of earnings, but also as a tool to generate low-cost finance (at terms better than those imposed by the country's sovereign rating). A concrete structured financing based on migrant remittances into Ghana is described in detail.
