Poverty, Language, and Participation in Non-Farm Labor Markets in Rural Paraguay

Paraguay is a society comprised of two vastly different populations. One population is urban, Spanish speaking, educated and employed in the formal sector. The other is rural, speaks GuaranĂ­, has little schooling, and is self-employed. This paper examines rural labor markets in Paraguay. The effect of deficiencies in social services on participation in non-farm labor and household income is identified.
