Abstract

French Abstract: L'objectif de ce papier est de montrer comment les agriculteurs luttent contre la pauvreté en milieu rural. Nous utilisons le modele Logit multinomial pour déterminer les strategies de survie des ménages ruraux. Les resultats montrent que plus les chefs de menage sont éduqués, plus ils diversifient leur revenu. De plus, le nombre d'années passées hors du village a aussi un impact positif et significatif sur la diversification des revenus des ménages.

We used the Logit multinomial model to determine of the strategies of survival of the rural households. The results showed that the educated-households diversify their incomes more than the less-educated households. Furthermore, the high number of years crossed outside the village also has a impact on diversfication of income.
