The Economics of Lending with Joint Liability: Theory and Practice

Maitreesh Ghatak () and Timothy Guinnane ()

Working Papers from Yale - Economic Growth Center

Abstract: The study examines the effects of gender and credit constraints on rural students' advancement to secondary education, which is arguably the major bottleneck in Thailand's education system. Credit constraints are measured indirectly through rainfall variation, availability of informal lenders in the village, and household specific variables especially titled land owned by the household.
