Gender differences in willingness to pay for capital-intensive agricultural technologies: the case of fish solar tent dryers in Malawi

In this paper, we analyse Lake Malawi fish processors’ Willingness to pay (WTP) and identify the gender disparities that are associated with the WTP for a common good, i.e. investing in a group owned fish solar tent dryer (FSTD). We assessed the willingness to pay for group ownership of FSTD because we assumed that the initial investments are too high for individual fish processors to bear.
