STRIVE Mozambique: From Savings Groups to Reduced Vulnerability of the Rural Poor

Summary

Lessons from STRIVE Mozambique: From Savings Groups to Reduced Vulnerability of the Rural Poor

This field note draws on qualitative research experience from the STRIVE Mozambique project to draw attention to how SGs may help address vulnerability to risk and provide a foundation for future examination of the role SGs can play in this regard. The STRIVE Mozambique project utilized a quasi-experimental design, whereby four pairs of districts were randomly allocated to project interventions (SGs; a labor rotating scheme called Ajuda Mútua; or SGs and Ajuda Mútua) or control. At the household level, SGs were found to have a positive significant impact on income, asset ownership, and months of food sufficiency, but there was no statistically significant effect on food diversity.
