Bank loan requirement and availability for Nigerian small farmers: a comparative analysis of experiences

, : Bank loan requirement and availability for Nigerian small farmers: a comparative analysis of experiences. Savings and Development (Supplement 1): 49-61

This study compares the size of bank loan requirement vis-a-vis availability among small farmers in Nigeria growing arable food crops, using Ondo State as a representative sample area. The state is a major food basket area for Nigeria, particularly the South. Existing literature on the need, inadequacy, appropriate sources of loan and the contributions of Nigerian banks to the overall national growth and development of agriculture is reviewed.
