Este articulo utiliza una encuesta representativa a nivel nacional para estudiar el impacto de las remesas internacionales sobre la probabilidad de ser pobre, la severidad de la pobreza y la desigualdad entre pobres en Guatemala. Tres resultados emergen. Primero, controlando por seleccion y endogeneidad, los hogares que reciben remesas internacionales reducen su probabilidad de ser pobres. Segundo, controlando por endogeneidad y el truncamiento de datos, las remesas internacionales reducen la severidad de la pobreza. Tercero, controlando por endogeneidad y el truncamiento de datos, las remesas internacionales aumentan marginalmente la desigualdad entre los pobres.
