The objective of this research was to gain a better understanding of the drivers of pro-social, altruistic and reciprocal giving behavior, and ultimately inform the design of new offerings and services tailored towards the needs of the low-income market segment. The research consisted of two independent experiments looking at how people chose to share money with others under different settings.
