Gaibandha & Kurigram
Carl-Christian Groh, who is a graduate from Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU), München. His research interests are varied primarily in development economics, international trade, behavioral economics; and theoretical microeconomics, education economics, long-run-growth secondarily. To have a research interest on behavioral economics in particular, Mr. Groh visited MOMODa FOUNDATION, Gaibandha Bangladesh to execute a research project of Dr. Abu Shonchoy, Dr. Czura and Dr. Simeon Schudy of the IDE-JETRO Japan and LMU Munich respectively regarding the credit behavior of the poor and especially the effect of leadership quality on credit repayment.
He stayed in Gaibandha for two-and-a half month and visited different areas of Gaibandha and Kurigram districts. Since the project has been implemented in the river islands, locally known as Chars, of Gaibandha and Kurigram districts of northern Bangladesh mostly populated by poor households, he had to visit that area to execute the experiment.
During his visit, he was with good company by MOMODa FOUNDATION team and was given strapping security protection whenever he moved to the field areas.
