Results showed that the education level of the households, have productive fixed assets value, housing value at the end of the year, the distance to the recent financial institutions, warranty or guarantee, mortgage, loan period, interest rates, from application to loan to spend money and time in the last two years has positive effect. The values of the livestock, the use of funds for the purpose of farmers’ loan funds have a reverse impact.
