Herd reconstitution: the role of credit among WoDaaBe herders in central Niger



Herd reconstitution: the role of credit among WoDaaBe herders in central Niger



Pastoral Network Paper, Agricultural Administration Unit, Overseas Development Institute, UK (18d): 14



The paper describes research that established the need for a pastoral credit system among WoDaaBe herders in central Niger, carried out during 1980-82 as part of the Niger Range and Livestock Project. Ownership of cattle forms the basis of WoDaaBe production and it is estimated that only about 10% of households have herds adequate to support their dependants. Inadequate herds mean insufficient milk production and make the WoDaaBe even more dependent upon cereals.
