In a joint initiative with the Aspen Network of Development Entrepreneurs (ANDE) and the Bernard Van Leer Foundation (BVLF), I-DEV conducted a multi-year, research-based analysis to evaluate the impact that investing in small and growing businesses (SGBs) has in reducing poverty and improving the quality of life of families in the base of the pyramid. The report examines three key productive export sectors in Peru– goldenberry, coffee, and handicrafts– and provides a replicable methodology with suggested quantitative and qualitative indicators for measuring the BoP household-level impact of SGBs globally.
