Abstract
  • This study explored how micro-credit benefits women processing cultured catfish into smoked form by obtaining and analyzing their perceptions. The specific objectives included identifying micro-credit sources used, sources preferred and ranking factors considered when deciding on a micro-credit choice. Multi-stage sampling technique was used in selecting 120 processors analyzed. Analytical tools used included descriptive and inferential statistics. About 92.0% of the respondents was between 25-55 years indicating being economically active. About 17.0%, 38.7% and 44.0% of respondents sourced micro-credit from Cooperatives, Family/Friends and Government, respectively. Eighty-eight percent of micro-credit users accessed it in the last one year and 78.0% utilized it for intended purposes. Also, 78.0% disagreed or strongly disagreed with the statement that access to micro-credit is particularly difficult for women. T-test revealed that profit made by users was significantly higher than that of non-users. There were varied perceptions by respondents in terms of statements relating to aspects of micro-credit from various institutions. The four most popular reasons considered in the choice of micro-credit included timeliness of funds release (93.7%), magnitude (77.8%), speed of application processing (67%) and severity of reprisals during default (56.4%). These reasons were ranked first to third by 32.0% of micro-credit users. Present a guarantor (62.5%) and depositing part of the micro-credit as saving (37.5%) were the most mentioned constraints. It is concluded that micro-credit is a veritable means of keeping women fish processors productive and thus government policies meant to encourage more women to access and effectively use it need be put in place.
