Author Info

  • Joachim De Weerdt

Abstract

This paper uses linked qualitative and quantitative data to explore the growth trajectories of matched households in the Kagera region of Tanzania, finding that agriculture and trade provided the two main routes out of poverty. The interplay between initial conditions, shocks, networks and experiences of life beyond their village determine whether a person moves out of poverty in the following decade.
