Dean Karlan Presenting at the Consumer Protection Research for Policymaking Workshop
Description: Appropriate consumer protection is becoming ever more central to ensuring the financial wellbeing of the poor. Ensuring that consumers are able to select and use financial products to their best advantage is a key component of financial inclusion. Without a robust consumer protection framework, even the most educated and capable consumer is likely to have difficulty making prudent financial choices. It is vital that policies aiming to protect consumers account for lessons from behavioral economics and be subject to testing before they are nationally scaled. IPA’s Financial Inclusion Program in collaboration with CGAP held a one-day workshop to discuss the current state of evidence and guide the direction of investments in research in this space.

Climbing the Ladder (Spanish) HD
Description: Women selected by the Targeting the Ultra Poor Program (www.poverty-action.org/graduation) are changing their lives and those of their children as they participate in the Challenging the Frontiers of Poverty Reduction program (CFPR) which combines a gift of an asset with complementary strategies, such as training in the use of the asset and other life skills, a time-bound cash stipend, and introduction of a savings scheme, instead of focusing on only one aspect of poverty. This film, Climbing the Ladder, highlights the daily choices and progress of a few participants in the program. An evaluation of the intervention by Innovations for Poverty Action (IPA) provides a perspective on how well the program performed relative to a control group of similar families who did not participate in the program. More than an economic growth story, this is the tale of human resilience and fortitude in the face of extreme poverty. Video produced by Big World Cinema: www.bigworldcinema.com
