Abstract or Summary
  • One of the main obstacles faced by small-scale fisheries in developing country is lack of financial capabilities. In order to overcome such a constraint, government in developing country often provides subsidies and small loans in various forms to offset the difficulties in accessing financial markets. Smallscale fishery in northern coast of Java is such a typical fishery where heavy subsidies in forms of soft loans and small credits have double-edge swords effects to both resource and fishermen. Micro credits and other forms of small loans only address the short terms problems and provide partial solution to the overall fisheries problems in the area. This paper explores the experiences of small-scale fisheries in the northern coast of Java with respect to the impact of subsidies and small loans (micro credits) on their fishing activities as well as their livelihood. The paper also addresses how other non-conventional financial assistances address the poverty and fishing problems compared with government-driven assistances.
