The article utilises longitudinal evidence gathered from in-depth interviews with recipient households in Glen Norah at the peak of the crisis in 2008 and after the formation of the unity government in 2009. It shows that households were not passive victims of the crisis, but were rather active, adopting multiple strategies to survive. This article shows specifically how patterns of remittances changed with the fluid economic and political environment to allow households to cope as the crisis mutated.
