Title:Solidarities towards disadvantaged households. The case of households headed by women
Abstract:Private solidarities take various forms in Madagascar. Transfers between households are among of the most common. We analyze the transfer system, taking into account the gender of the head of household. We analyze the relationship between private transfers and public transfers. We use data from the Rural Observatory of Manakara located in Southeastern Madagascar. Our results show clear differences in the payment and receipt of transfers, by gender of the head of the household. Understanding such mechanisms is therefore essential for the development of targeted public policies.
