94% of women at graduation reported involvement in decisions about new household purchases, compared to 78% at enrolment.


Data was provided by 5,439 participants who graduated from Women for Women International's core programme between January and December 2018. This dataset only includes baseline and endline data for sampled graduates who were interviewed in both survey rounds. For data related to household decision-making, women whose responses were recorded as “N/A” are excluded from sample.

Purchasing power parities (PPPs) are the rates of currency conversion that equalise the purchasing power of different currencies by eliminating the differences in price levels between countries.

Grace's story

"I was alone and had to take care of the children who were all very young at the time. I couldn’t imagine them growing without their father around. He was the one who provided for them."
