Mutual insurance and non-market transactions among farmers in Burkina Faso

Mutual insurance and non-market transactions among farmers in Burkina Faso

Dissertation Abstracts International A, Humanities and Social Sciences 49(8): p.2322

Non-market exchanges (gifts, favours, mutual assistance, charitable giving, and religious and ceremonial tithing) taking place among farmers in Burkina Faso are analysed. Networks of family, friends and kin rival markets develop because they embrace the individual's need for insurance against disaster. Across income classes, farmers give away between 28%-33% of their income to these personal insurance networks. In return, they receive on average 24% of their income from this network.
