Project: Savings Groups

World Vision’s Savings Groups were developed to expand access to credit in communities with limited access to financial services. Promising aspects of the program include its simplicity, transparency, low-cost set up, and sustainability. World Vision Canada is interested in conducting a comprehensive review of these programs, and exploring opportunities for expanding these programs through results-based financing. Limestone will assist with this comprehensive review by conducting the following activities: literature review, data analysis, situation analysis, feasibility model, and financial design.
