Abstract

This review reflects information available at an early stage in the development of the FSA model, with the oldest FSAs in operation for less than five years. The review therefore inevitably draws out areas needing further information, and notes that the FSA model as yet is characterised more by potential than proven achievements. This review draws initial studies and reviews conducted in Uganda, Kenya, and Benin, and on statistics produced by KREP (Kenya) and I FAD (Benin). This still rather limited data and literature base is supplemented by perspective from the experience of FSAs in South Africa, Congo, and Guinea, and by telephone and email interviews with experts.
