Latin America | Study on Migration, Remittances and the Empowerment of Women in Central America and the Andean Region

SIDA, 2007 to 2008

This study used three interlinked field surveys in Central America, the Andean Region and the United States to document women’s migration and remittance patterns, women’s use of remittances to purchase land, construct or improve housing, and the impact of remittances on the empowerment of women. The study aimed to provide critical background documentation needed to develop policies, projects and programs that enable women migrants or remittance receivers to build key assets to promote the economic stability of their households.
