VisionFund Malawi 60_Decibels FAST Programme Client Survey Report

VisionFund Malawi FAST Followup Survey

VisionFund commissioned 60_Decibels to conduct two impact evaluations in Malawi to determine if VisionFund´s FAST programme – lending to savings groups,  accomplished its main programme objectives:

  • Reach the financially excluded, rural poor
  • Primarily target women
  • Ensure the loan is invested in income generating activities
  • Show increases in household income
  • Improve the quality of life for the family, especially the children

The surveys were conducted June 2021 (357 respondents, 80% women) and January 2022 (242 respondents, 65% women), and provided beneficial client feedback on what is working well and what needs improvement.
