Empowering Women to Save for their Preferred Delivery
Health & PsychologyZambia
Pregnant women struggle to save adequately for delivery in rural Zambia. We previously piloted a novel savings intervention that involves providing maternity grants to pregnant women in savings groups and separately, a behavioral tool that helps them set goals and devise a personalized plan for saving. This project aims to pilot necessary data collection instruments and field protocols and complete a listing of savings groups in our study area in preparation for a full RCT that evaluates the effectiveness of the intervention and explores potential mechanisms.
