Microfinance Opportunities - Scaled 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.

This is a scaled version of the original, 3-country garment worker diaries. First public disclosure will occur in October 2018.
