The project aims to use data to understand the long-term welfare implications of cash transfers for village economies, particularly whether cash transfers to some households in a village help make all households better off in the long run.

The other objective is to identify the channels (such as prices, wages, job creation or local public goods) through which cash transfers effects can persist.

The study is taking place within Siaya County and is being funded by National Bureau of Economic Research and London School of Economics and Political Science.
