The purpose of this paper is to examine the role of farmer organization in the mobilization and administration of agricultural finance. We show that in the communal lands of Zimbabwe, farmer -groups facilitate savings and access to institutional-credit. We also demonstrate that terms of joint liability are the most effective in reducing administrative costs and recovering loans.
