RESEARCH FOCUS POINTS

Business Operations, Health, Child Development, and Gender Relations

Even though WMI provides a loan program, impacts are not limited to improved economic conditions and opportunities. The loan program includes monthly visits to borrowers' businesses by trained Local Coordinators who live in the villages and who are also borrowers. The Local Coordinators review the borrowers' book keeping, inquire about business activities and family welfare, and prepare monthly Local Coordinator Reports (LCRs). The information gathered through the LCRs provides additional insight into the ways the loan program is changing the lives of borrowers and the ways it is transforming the local communities where it operates. WMI utilized information from the LCRs to review the loan program's impact in four important areas:
