Journal of Development Economics, 2019, vol. 136, issue C, 71-110
•We are among the first to study a vocational training program in a low-income country.•We find large effects of trainees taking up informal non-farm employment.•Impacts are mainly driven by female self-employment inside (but not outside) the house.•Low baseline educational attainment and restrictive gender roles for females in Nepal may explain our large program effects.•We suggest that effect channels differ markedly from similar interventions in high and middle-income countries.
