Abstract

Nous analysons, à l’aide d’un modèle de régression binomiale négative à inflation de zéros, en quoi avoir un capital social de réseaux peut aider les ménages ruraux à atténuer les contraintes de crédit. Dans le contexte de l’économie du développement, la méthode de recueil de données utilisée, qui trouve ses origines dans la sociologie, est innovatrice, dans la mesure où nous avons réalisé une enquête sur les réseaux personnels afin de mesurer le capital social individuel des ménages ruraux. Nous définissons quatre variables de capital social en fonction de la solidité des liens et de la distance sociale entre les personnes interrogées et les membres de leur réseau. Nous obtenons ainsi les quatre variables de capital social suivantes: 1. bonding (liens forts avec des personnes occupant des positions sociales similaires); 2. bridging (liens faibles avec des personnes occupant des positions sociales similaires); 3. bonding-link (liens forts avec des personnes occupant des positions sociales supérieures); et 4. bridging-link (liens faibles avec des personnes occupant des positions sociales supérieures). Notre analyse économétrique suggère que des liens forts avec des personnes de positions sociales supérieures peuvent réduire l’impact des contraintes de crédit.
