This document evaluates the impact of the conditional cash transfer programs (CCT), Juancito Pinto, Juana Azurduy and the Dignity Rent, on poverty reduction in Bolivia. The study is based on information from the 2013 Household Survey and the application of impact evaluation techniques. Results suggest that the implementation of these programs reduced the incidence of moderate poverty in Bolivia in 8.2pp and extreme poverty in 9.6pp, for the group which received these transfers."
