The Learning Lab presents an illustrated excerpt of its forthcoming study on the impact case for rural and agricultural finance, released to coincide with the Learning from Rural Clients workshop on client voice in Cape Town.

In this booklet, available for download below, we present a snapshot of what outcomes matter to many smallholder famers.  In other words, we often talk about impact measurement – but what does impact mean to clients themselves?  Does this align with how practioners measure impact? If not, how can we address that gap?

We worked to incorporate these perspectives into our understanding of a theory of impact for rural and agricultural finance, described in the forthcoming study.
