Resumen

El objetivo de este artículo es estimar el efecto que tiene el uso de las microfinanzas en la pobreza por ingresos de los hogares del sector rural mexicano. Empleando información de la Encuesta Coneval a Hogares Rurales de México 2013 (EnChor 2013) (Consejo Nacional de Evaluación de la Política de Desarrollo Social [Coneval], 2013) y técnicas de propensity score matching, los resultados de esta investigación muestran que el uso de los microcréditos contribuye a disminuir los niveles de pobreza de los hogares rurales en México. Estos hallazgos ponen de manifiesto la necesidad de crear políticas públicas que permitan incorporar a un mayor número de hogares pobres al mercado de las microfinanzas, lo cual incrementaría los niveles de vida de las personas que viven en este sector.
