  • Financial constraints to farmers in Africa have been a long-standing problem,
    but most of the literature on this topic in Namibia and elsewhere has been
    descriptive. The aim of this paper is to explainthe causes of financing constraints.
    It does so by focusing on agricultural Small and Medium-scale Enterprises
    (SMEs) in Namibia. The research employs a qualitative research methodology
    made up of the purposive-judgement sampling and the Noticing, Collecting and
    Thinking approach in analysing the data. The study shows that there is a lack of
    collateral and poor loan recovery on the supply-side while on the demand-side,
    the provision of insufficient capital and bureaucracy are the biggest constraints
    preventing a number of agricultural SMEs from accessing finance from formal
    financial institutions. These findings have major implications for the role of the
    state in financing agriculture in Africa.
