This project will build on previous research completed by AEF on low-income women, heads of household and low-income retirees in order to develop adapted financial education methodologies. These will be implemented on a treatment and control group from each of the two segments and will be subsequently evaluated. In addition, the project will develop a dissemination strategy that includes: an implementation plan for the Ministries of Social Development and Social Security, to guide the incorporation of financial education methodologies by the current Bolsa Familia and Credito Consignado public policies; and an online portal to make the materials developed throughout this project available to a broader audience.
ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF IDB/ IIC
The Independent Consultation and Investigation Mechanism (MICI) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who have been or are likely to be adversely affected by an Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) or Inter-American Investment Corporation (IIC)-funded project. If you submit a complaint to MICI, they may assist you in addressing the problems you raised through a dispute-resolution process with those implementing the project and/or through an investigation to assess whether the IDB or IIC is following its own policies for preventing or mitigating harm to people or the environment. You can submit a complaint by sending an email to MICI@iadb.org. You can learn more about the MICI and how to file a complaint at http://www.iadb.org/en/mici/mici,1752.html (in English) or http://www.iadb.org/es/mici/mici,1752.html (Spanish).
