The intervention randomly provides a 150 Kenyan shilling income shock to participants at the end of each weekly monitoring visit for 8 weeks. The probability of receiving the shock in a given week was 50 percent for each spouse. Thus, there are weeks in which both spouses got the shock, weeks in which only one or the other got the shock, and weeks in which neither did. The shocks were announced to each spouse, so that each knew what the other had gotten. Payments were made privately, however, and individuals were told that they could spend the money however they chose.
