Internship OpportunitiesTo Complete Financial Landscape Documentation
For Cocoa Stakeholder
 The Cocoa Sustainability Partnership (CSP) is
a public-private forum for the advancement of communication and working
together between stakeholders actively engaged in cocoa development initiatives
in Indonesia. The CSP exists to increase communication, coordination and
collaboration between public and private stakeholders engaged in cocoa
sustainability activities in Indonesia for the mutual benefit of all cocoa
sector players. The day to day
management of the forum is run by a Secretariat located in Makassar. The Secretariat
function is to facilitate communication and knowledge sharing among CSP members
and other stakeholders in cocoa industry. Background of the
Consultation:
Most agricultural
markets, often defined by different segments of the agricultural value chain
(input suppliers, producers, traders, processors, exporters) lack access to
needed financial services, not just the least affluent. Developing financial
products and technologies to serve agricultural and rural markets, including
smallholder producers and small traders, also requires the development of more
complex financial technologies, for example, insurance and derivative products,
that can potentially serve  all segments
of the agricultural value chain from farmer to exporter to reduce risk.  Today, Indonesia is third biggest
cocoa producer in the world. With its vast and abundant cocoa trees, Indonesia could
become a major global producer of a wide variety of cocoa products, offering
strong opportunities to smallholder producers. Yet, millions of smallholder
farmers and farm workers are materially and financially unable to tap into
these resources. They are often geographically isolated and lack access to
agricultural extension services, markets and financial services. Cocoa Sustainability Partnership
(CSP) as multi stakeholder forum in cocoa has developed Cocoa Roadmap 2020 with
two main objectives is to make Indonesia as a cocoa producer number one in the
world and maintain an average age of farmers in below 40 years. In order to

achieve these objectives CSP has established six task forces in the General
Assembly in 2015. One of these task force is Access
to Finance task force with objective to identify models of financial services
to farmers. To achieve this objective, task force will document, identify,
review financial models that have been developed by members of the CSP and
other financial institutions. The final output or result of this activity is Finance Landscape document.
The document can be used as a recommendation of financial models that can be
implemented in the cocoa sector and other agricultural sectors so that access
to finance could be improved. Some financial model which will be
summarized in this document is public sector loan products, social lenders and
other financing options. It also includes other useful information related to
loans, such as on creditworthiness assessment tools and collateral. Until now this document is still
in the process of compilation and CSP are opening 2 internship opportunities to
