Country Assessment: Peru

We asked five young consultants in the countries where the program is implemented (Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, Chile and Mexico) to carry out assessments of four areas: poverty and social policies; conditioned transfer programs; the relationship between conditioned transfer programs and the financial system; and characteristics of the financial system in relation to the savings of the poor. This Country assessment focuses on Peru.
