SC wished to conduct a survey in order to evaluate the impact that their Dawn Microfinance Program has had on the lives of poor women clients and their families, including assessing the possible reduction in their vulnerability through increased human, social and financial assets. As a child-focused organization, SC specifically wants to know whether the children of the borrowers are better off than they would have been otherwise. In addition to knowing whether the program was working, SC also wanted to know where it was working, how it was working and what it could do to improve it.
