MOVE and BOMA completed a final impact survey of our OIM solution for microentrepreneurs in Marsabit, Kenya. Among 150 respondents who took both baseline and endline tests, 46% could read and understand the meaning of a 4-digit number – up from 21% at baseline. Using the OIM ‘currency frame’ that was integrated into the records, 66% could write a 4-digit number to record a transaction amount – up from 32% who could write a 1-digit number at baseline. Only 3% refused to try to write, and most expressed a desire to learn more at the end of the project.
