Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on the strategies used by migrants to establish cliente list relations with hosts through an examination of: the experiences of a number of different migrants; and the ways in which hosts benefit from their clients' labour. Clients' unremunerated labour represents a flexible form of labour upon which hosts rely heavily. Within the context of an increasing shortage of agrarian labour, the provision of this labour is a highly valued resource. The chapter examines the periods during which clients' labour is most crucial and the strategies some hosts adopt in order to ensure that they are in a position to provide land to clients.

Keywords: agrarian clientelist relations; female agrarian labour; livelihood strategies
