Research of VSLAs/Community-Based Savings Groups in Household’s Resilience

The objective of the research is to foster a better understanding of the economic empowerment approach that CARE applies in its programmes and specifically zoom in on the modalities that CARE uses in this regard: Village Savings and Loan Associations, Community Based Savings Groups and Savings and Credit Groups. After having applied these approaches in various programmes and in different modalities for several years, CARE Afghanistan would like to know what the effect of these approaches is on women and their communities and what can be said about the relation between the economic empowerment interventions and the effect on resilience of women, their households and their communities.

LINK UP Final Project Evaluation

This report focuses on the potential of linkages between formal financial services and savings groups to create change for the savings groups, banks, and households. One of the projects that is involved in this work in LINK Up, a project supported by CARE, Access Africa and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. LINK Up is a 3.5 year project working with savings groups in Tanzania and Kenya.
We use multiple datasets to explore trends over time that can answer the three guiding learning questions embedded in the LINK Up project.
(1) What is the impact of access to formal financial services on savings groups?
(2)What does the account performance look like for these groups and how does this affect the associated banks’ business models.
(3) What value do the people involved derive from gaining access to formal financial services?
