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 received funding help from CGAP in 2015-2016 and from the UNCDF's SHIFT programme in 2017-2019. We are now funding it ourselves.
