Ana Sundvall wins Political Economy’s Best Paper Prize

Please join us in congratulating Ana Sundvall in winning this year’s Political Economy Best Paper Prize for her IA senior thesis “Big Goals, Micro Loans: Microfinance and Poverty in Guatemala.”

Drawing on data from micro-finance in Guatemala, Ana argues that the success of micro-finance institutions depends at least in part on the fit between a particular micro-finance model (how it targets recipients and issues small loans) and a community’s composition (especially poverty level and market type).

Congratulations, Ana!
