Financial Diaries of Smallholders
Early insights are emerging from CGAP's work with smallholder households, which is centered on the Financial Diaries of Smallholders. This project was designed to enhance the understanding of the financial lives of smallholder families by capturing the cash flows of 270 households in Mozambique, Tanzania, and Pakistan over one year of their lives. The ultimate goal of this research is to translate the insights from the Smallholder Diaries into financial tools and provider practices that more effectively respond to the needs and preferences of this important client group.
On May 5, 2015, CGAP's Jamie Anderson and Bankable Frontier Associates' Wajiha Ahmed and Kristy Bohling discussed the progress of CGAP's Financial Diaries of Smallholder Households project and the early insights that are unfolding during a live web chat.
