While Government and NGOs in Bangladesh have undertaken many interventions designed to help households escape poverty, little is known about their long-term impact. Using a new longitudinal data set spanning 12 years and more than 1800 households, this project will investigate the long-term impact of three anti-poverty interventions—microfinance, agricultural technology, and educational transfers—on several measures of well-being and compare their cost-effectiveness.
The 18 month study involves the analysis of high quality data collected from Dar-es-Salaam, and a contrasting rural site, Mbeya to explore how poor women engaged in formal or informal employment activities outside the home describe the impact of their work on their roles and relationships.
