No wp-2014-034, WIDER Working Paper Series from World Institute for Development Economic Research (UNU-WIDER)

Abstract: This paper follows a quasi-experimental research design to assess the impact of the electronic payment system of Mexico's Oportunidades programme. The switch from cash payments to electronic payments delivered via a bank account is found to have implications in terms of reallocation between saving portfolio choices, transaction costs, and coping strategies.
