In Nigeria, credit access is a major problem among rural farming households due among others to lack of adequate collateral. The availability of social capital to households has been known to remove the problems associated with collateral hence improving the poor’s access to credit. This study examined the determinants of Credit Access and the bi-causal relationship between Social capital and Credit Access among Cocoa Farming Households (CFH).
