|Name:||The role of cash transfers in poverty reduction: Evidence from Kenya|
Cash transfers are important in relieving both the direct and opportunity costs of utilizing public social services such as health and education. Cash transfers have a direct effect on the welfare of poor households and provide general livelihood support. Although the level of the transfer may not be sufficient in itself to lift households out of poverty, the benefit of a cash transfer immediately relieves the economic hardships that poor households may be facing. However, there are very few studies conducted on the effect of cash transfers especially for Kenya. This study uses a micro-simulation method to evaluate non-conditional cash transfer programmes and the ex-ante programme effect on poverty and inequality by simulating selected targeting criteria.
