Remittances are a lifeline for countless people across the world. In this episode we look at the ways in which these funds have revolutionised rural development.

Then Bibiana Vasquez joins us to discuss IFAD’s work with remittances in Africa, before focusing on Kenya and Mali with David Berno and Guillame Top.
