Abstract

After mentioning CARIPLO's early commitment to agricultural credit problems both in Italy and in developing countries, Professor Dell'Amore touches upon the main aspects of a sound credit policy for the rural sector. First, it is stressed that in developing countries credit availability for small farmers is restricted by a host of interrelated factors, including land tenure, subsistence oriented production, technical and administrative education, functional organization of agricultural credit, marketing channels. Co-operative structures can help in reaching the small farmer if operated through an extensive network and managed, in the interest of the smaller participants, by skilled administrators. Public policy, however, is the basic factor of success: savings promotion and credit supply in rural areas will not be effective if legislation, government investment and the central bank do not supply the needed complementary inputs both at the functional (e.g., anti-cyclical policies, liquidity policies for agricultural credit institutions, etc.) and at the structural level (e.g., investment in a new financial system, in rural infrastructure, in education, etc.).
