Lump-sum Transfers for Agriculture and Household Decision Making

No 2019-19, Department of Economics Working Papers from Department of Economics, Williams College

Abstract: We study the impact of one-season transfers framed for agricultural investment on smallholders in Senegal and Malawi using data from an RCT in each country. We find suggestive evidence that transfers reduced both the number of decision makers and female decision making in Senegal in the short-run, particularly for measures directly related to agriculture. Effects are gone two years after the transfers. Conversely, transfers in the Malawi program led to robust transitory increases in these measures.
