Choc de revenu et éducation des enfants en présence d'imperfection du marché du crédit. Le cas du Malawi
This paper shows that households take children out of school as risk coping strategy in response to income shocks under binding credit constraints. The analysis also highlights trade-off in resource allocation for education. A higher number of children in household decreases the probability of their schooling. Instead of the resource competition among siblings, the results show an incitation effect when the schooling status of brothers and sisters is taken into account: children with brothers and sisters going to school have better chance to go to school. This result challenges the generally admitted hypothesis of resource competition among siblings in the literature. A new incitation effect, highlighting the positive effect of siblings schooling on the probability of schooling of other children in the household is thus put forward.
