Labor Markets and Poverty in Village Economies

Author(s): Oriana Bandiera, Robin Burgess, Narayan Das, Selim Gulesci, Imran Rasul, Munshi Sulaiman
Date: March 2016
We study how women’s choices over labor activities in village economies correlate with poverty and whether enabling the poorest women to take on the activities of their richer counterparts can set them on a sustainable trajectory out of poverty. To do this we conduct a large-scale randomized control trial, covering over 21,000 households in 1,309 villages surveyed four times over a seven year period, to evaluate a program that transfers livestock assets and skills to the poorest women

The similar dietary pattern and practices were found for under-two children in the intervention areas of Alive and Thrive (A&T) project where mothers were counseled on appropriate complementary feeding practice as a component of Infant and Young Child Feeding (IYCF).
