now running for over three and a half years!

we collected the first day's data on 20th May 2015


The Hrishipara Daily Diaries project tracks the daily money transactions of 60 low-income households in central Bangladesh on a daily basis over many years.

It started in May 2015 and is ongoing. Its objective is to understand in detail the economic and financial lives of low-income households. Its goal is to reveal insights that will enable policy makers and service providers (including financial service providers) to help low-income households improve their lives.

We began to spend funds kindly provided by the UNCDF's SHIFT programme in July 2017

Recent news: twenty-four publications about the diaries have appeared so far, many of them blogs which can be found on sites like CGAP, MicroSave, Manchester University's Global Development Institute, and the UNCDF. A full listing can be found on the publications page.
