Research objectives

Research Objectives

To understand

Determinants of credit access and credit sector choice of rural household

Determinants of credit amount household obtained


Access to credit and borrowing behaviour of rural households in a transition economy

Data

  • Vietnam Living Standard Survey 1992/93 & 1997/98

    • VLSS92/93: 4,800 households & 150 communes

    • VLSS97/98: 6,000 households & 194 communes


The model of partial observability

The Model of Partial Observability

  • Credit Demand equation (1)

  • Credit Supply equation (2)


The model of partial observability1

The Model of Partial Observability

  • Credit Participation (3)

  • Probability of being credit participant

Findings and discussion

Findings and Discussion

Uniform access to formal credit across communes

Inverse u-shape impacts of education, the least and the most educated household heads borrow least

Rapid expansion of formal sector

But demand for formal credit is estimated at low level


Determinants of loan size

Determinants of Loan Size

The Heckman Selection Model

Heckman two-step estimation result


Findings and discussion1

Findings and Discussion

The further distance to bank branch, the less participation probability and the smaller loan amount

Land size, house ownership, domestic labour, and education significantly positively increase supply of credit

Impacts of health condition on choice of credit sector


Policy implications

Policy Implications

Expanding formal credit network via social organisations i.e. Woman Union, Youth Union, Postal System to increase the accessibility of formal credit

The low demand for formal credit implies lack of investment opportunities for poor rural households. Hence, government should introduce a policy calling for more investment in far and distant rural areas
