Microfinance Opportunities - Garment Worker Diaries
MFO works with field teams in-country to collect primary data on garment workers’ economic lives. They do this data collection every week for one year. It is supplemented with a series of cross-sectional, topical modules. Data is spot-checked, queried, and verified by field team supervisors.
Microfinance Opportunities collects data on events that happen in their lives, data on injuries, pain, daily schedules, brands worked on, and factories worked in along with surveys on financial capability, working conditions, and health.
