Indeed inaccessibility to agricultural credit by grain growers in Uasin-Gishu County, has contributed to the low and declining use of farm inputs resulting in a fall in agricultural productivity leading to low outputs and depressed farmers income. The study examined factors influencing accessibility to agricultural credit. The study was conducted in Uasin-Gishu County, Kenya, using a survey design. The research examined 130 grain farmers, interviewed 1 K-Rep officer and 2 officers from Agricultural Finance Corporation (AFC). Interviews, structured questionnaires, observation and document analysis, were used to collect quantitative data from the sampled households. Descriptive and binary logit model were used to analyze quantitative and qualitative data. The results revealed that 47 (36.8 per cent) of the sampled grain farmers accessed agricultural credit, whereas the remaining 83 (63.8 per cent) did not access credit. It was also found that agricultural credit access by female farmers is still very limited. Generally, farmers' age, education level, family size, household size, repayment period and applied loan were highly important in influencing access to agricultural credit. Therefore, a policy be adopted where extension officers from the ministry of Agriculture do an exhaustive database on socio-economic status of all grain farmers in the County.

Title : Prospects of Angel Finance and Venture Capitalist Finance in Bangladesh
Country : Bangladesh
Authors : Shabuz Mahmud
: 10.9790/5933-0236166      logo

Abstract: This study examines that the necessities of business angel investors and venture capitalists for the funding of start up businesses in our economy. Business Angel means an individual, acting alone or in a formal or informal group, who invests his or her own directly in an unquoted business and who after making the investment, takes an active involvement in the business, for example as an advisor or member of the board of directors. Angel investors, who are often wealthy individuals with experience building a business, provide early stage financing, called seed capital, for start-up ventures. Venture capitalists typically provide later stage financing, after the angels' investment. Many start-up businesses of Bangladesh need external financing to startup or growth stage of operations. If these new ventures anticipate quick and aggressive growth, they may turn to angel or venture capital investors for capital. Business Angels and VCs provide long term and committed share capital to help unquoted businesses grow and succeed. Angel and venture capitalist financing has provided seed capital for some famous U.S. businesses such as Bell Telephone, Ford Motor Company and Apple Computer. Entrepreneurial ventures dramatically affect Bangladesh economy and are the primary job creating engine of our economy. Where business has very limited access to funds and not bankable without security, the business angel and venture capitalist easily would ensure fund without security for highly potential business being a partner to make the business success.
