The contribution of village savings and loans associations to household food and nutrition security

the case of households in the East Mamprusi District, Ghana

Samenvatting

Access to micro-credit has often been argued to be one of the effective ways of contributing to food and nutrition security. CARE International since 1994 introduced the Village Savings and Loans Associ-ation (VSLA) in Ghana. The VSLA since then, has been contributing to making some amount of micro-credit available to rural dwellers. There has been some improvement in food and nutrition security although the problem persists. Northern Region is third in the ranking of food and nutrition insecure regions in the country. The East Mamprusi District (EMD) is one of the areas in the region in which majority of its population is food and nutrition insecure. John Snow International Training and Re-search Institute (JSITRI) is an organisation working on food and nutrition security in the district. The organisation has been using VSLA for its food and nutrition security interventions. JSITRI however, has limited evidence on how VSLA is contributing to household food and nutrition security. The objective of this study is to assess the contribution of VSLA to household food and nutrition security. The main question this study will find answers to is how does VSLA contribute to household food and nutrition security?
