As the service targets of inclusive finance, rural small, medium and micro enterprises are an important vehicle for farmers to increase their income and become rich. Combining the characteristics of the industrial chain and the needs of customer groups, Bank of Shanghai uses the “upstream e-chain” supply chain financial service platform and relies on real transactions in the industrial chain to endow accounts receivable with standardized “electronic payment vouchers” that can be split and transferred. The credit of core enterprises is extended to upstream N-level farmers and suppliers, so that credit resources can be accurately allocated to support the production and operation of “agriculture, rural areas and farmers” and small businesses in the industrial chain, and improve the availability, coverage and timeliness of financial services.
