Managerial attributes and enterprise access to formal credit in Myanmar

No wp-2019-20, WIDER Working Paper Series from World Institute for Development Economic Research (UNU-WIDER)

Abstract: Using data from a new survey of small and medium-sized enterprises in Myanmar, we analyse enterprise demand for formal credit and the extent to which they are constrained in the formal credit market. We account for firms self-selecting out of the credit market in Myanmar. Our data contain information about individual firm owner/manager gender, managerial capacity, and attitude towards risk. We use this information to test whether the allocation of scarce loanable funds is systematically associated with these attributes.
