Does Shikilia target a specific gender for transfers? Is it not true that women are better recipients?
Shikilia does not target specific genders because our targeting mechanism has largely been based the level of need. From our operations so far however, 2/3 of recipients have been women and 1/3 men. Additionally, 96% of sampled surveys have been individuals with more than one child and 60% were single, including widows or separated individuals.
