posted on 2023-04-27, 20:08 authored by Wyatt Dean PrachtWyatt Dean Pracht

This thesis consists of two essays on rural youth in Kenya. Both of these essays come from data collected to evaluate the impacts of a randomized controlled trial in Eastern Kenya where rural youth were trained in business concepts and linked with agricultural input suppliers to become resellers of post-harvest inputs to smallholder farmers. The first essay evaluates the impacts of the intervention on material economic outcomes such as income and expenditure. The second essay evaluates the effects of the intervention on psychological outcomes such as aspirations.
