Finance rurale au Bangladesh et aux Philippines

Abstract : This thesis contributes to the understanding of the rural financial market in developing countries with a specific accent on the role of groups. Microfinance successes in providing sustainable financial services to the poor have indeed been largely attributed to the use of credit groups. Beyond the participation in microcredit groups, participation in structured groups of all sorts is attracting development practitioners' attention as a privileged means for the poors to accumulate a specific form of capital, namely social capital.
My analysis are based on two countries that differ greatly in their rural credit market: Bangladesh and the Philippines. While microfinance is overwhelming the rural credit market in Bangladesh, it is almost absent in the Philippines. This difference in the structure of the credit market motivated the two research areas of my thesis, in which the microeconometric approach is privileged. The first area explores the determinants of microfinance repayment performance in Bangladesh using both analysis of repayment probabilities and analysis of duration of repayment delays. The second research area is devoted to credit constraints in the Philippines. The range and determinants of credit constraints are analyzed in a first step. The rational behind membership in different types of groups and the possibility for group membership to relax credit constraints are then studied.
