Abstract:Fundamental purposes of this article: 1. to present a more adequate analysis of the basic predicament of lending agencies in Africa - 2. to show that the nature of the problem calls for changes in the usual approaches not only to a) lending programmes, but also to b) the family of programmes to aid indigenous business (of which loans schemes are one member), and beyond that to c) the still broader issue of policies to accelerate the growth of the directly productive sectors of the economy. Reference is made in the discussion to the article of P. Marris, 'Lending money' (Journal of Modern African Studies, 5(1967), 2, p. 221/231). Notes.
