An analysis of credit use in the Honduran agrarian reform sector

An analysis of credit use in the Honduran agrarian reform sector

Land reform is a relatively recent phenomenon in Honduras. More than 80% of the redistribution has taken place since 1972 and virtually all has occurred since 1962. Most of the land has come from the public sector. This has created two problems. First, the Honduran government has not had time to establish an effective institutional infrastructure to administer the reform. Second, most reform beneficiaries are settled on low quality land.
