IMPACT OF CREDIT ON LABOR ALLOCATION AND CONSUMPTION PATTERNS IN MALAWI

Using a bargaining framework, this paper analyzes the impact of access to credit on household labor allocation and on consumption expenditures in rural Malawi. The labor participation decisions of married men and women and female heads are estimated using random-effects probit models, and are corrected for endogeneity of access to credit. Expenditure shares are estimated using ordinary least squares and Tobit models.
