Effectiveness of Credit Pooling in Financing Infrastructure for Economic Growth in Southern Rural Counties--A Quasi-experimental Approach
In this research, the method of quasi-experimentation is used to study the effects of adopting the credit pooling technique in financing infrastructure development in rural areas, thereby enhancing economic development. A difference in economic growth between the treated and control counties, if any, in the post treatment period is attributed to the treatment effect. Findings indicate some positive impact by raising the per capita income and income growth in some important sectors of the economy. However, that could be due to other treatments during the same period, which could not be controlled for in this study.
