Information, identification, or neither?: Experimental evidence on role models in Vietnam

No wp-2018-185, WIDER Working Paper Series from World Institute for Development Economic Research (UNU-WIDER)

Abstract: How can development programmes reach out to remote communities? This paper presents experimental evidence on the impact of a role models intervention that aims to inspire ethnic minority households to start businesses and diversify income sources. The experiment took place in three provinces of the Northern highlands of Vietnam. The research design enables us to disentangle the extent to which role models shift behaviour by providing information or inspiration.
