IPA is investigating many ways to help the poor boost the income they get from their work, from improving understanding of credit markets for farmers to productivity boosts for small and medium enterprises.

About 650 million people around the world live on $1.90 or less per day and face interrelated challenges, including food security, access to capital, savings, and health shocks. IPA is testing a number of programs designed to reach this population and help them onto a sustainable path out of poverty.
