TOP EVENTS

Rural Finance Impact Assessment Survey Workshop

Six (6) Supervisors and 4 enumerators attended the Rural Finance Impact Assessment Survey workshop organized by the Planning Services at Jenoi, Lower River Region on the 15th June 2012.  The workshop was facilitated by the National Nutrition Agency (NaNA).

The participants were trained how to collect information by getting the age, height and weight of the babies of the beneficiaries from the last year survey. However, the main objective of the survey was to measure the impact on the livelihood project they conducted last year through donation of garden tools and funds for credit association to the beneficiaries with undernourished children.

The project was funded by International Fund for Agricultural Development and carried out by the Rural Finance Project of the Gambia.
