One such model, known as credit guarantees, was pioneered by The Rockefeller Foundation and has been taken to scale by Agra with promising results. For example, the Nigeria Incentive-Based Risk-Sharing System for Agricultural Lending (Nirsal) offers strong incentives and technical assistance to banks, building the confidence and agricultural understanding of lenders with the goal of increasing the percentage of bank lending to farmers and agricultural enterprises from 1.4 percent to 7 percent in the next 10 years. Nirsal has already helped to unlock additional investment: earlier this year, USAID and the Nigerian government each provided guarantees to increase private financing and leverage up to $100m in commercial lending. These innovative finance models will go a long way to replicate and scale many of the agricultural innovations already happening across the continent.

Its not broadly understood this way, but hedge fund billionaire John Paulson not only saved jobs, but the billions he earned surely created new ones. Paulson took a big risk based on a strong belief that lending toward and consumption of housing had gone overboard, and the massive profits that confirmed his thesis told those with capital to steer it away from housing.
