Resumen

This paper evaluates whether student loans given to poor students at a large university in Peru are effective in reducing the time-to-degree. It uses a methodology that avoids the “selection problem” because the students voluntarily request a loan depending on their economic situation. The econometric results confirm the negative effect of educational loans for students.
