This research project aims to shed light on the use of remittances by Egyptian migrants and their potential to foster local investment opportunities, with a particular focus on establishing small and micro-sized enterprises (SMEs). The overall objective of this study is not only to find out how remittances are used by remittance-receiving households, particularly with regard to investment practices, but also to explore the decision-making dynamics in terms of remittance usage at the household level.
