PEASANT PRODUCTIVITY AND DIFFERENTIATION: A MICROECONOMETRIC ANALYSIS OF THE IMPACT OF SMALL FARM CREDIT IN NICARAGUA

Michael R. Carter

No 278458, 1986 Annual Meeting, July 27-30, Reno, Nevada from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)

Abstract: An endogenous switching regressions framework is used to structure and identify the impact of credit on small farm food production in Nicaragua. The results which emerge suggest that credit had a positive impact on production. However, the estimated impact is of a form which implies a process of peasant differentiation and unequal growth in the wake of the new opportunities afforded by credit.
