Abstract:The author discusses the organization and operation of credit in the cattle market of Ibadan. After a preliminary description of the formal organization of the market and of the credit by which it functions, he discusses some non-economic social relations which, while formally exterior to the market situation, are in practice built into the structure of the credit system in such a way that they make its functioning as a going concern possible. Reference notes; French summary.
