L-IFT’s main goal is to design development interventions based on action research. We are specialized in diaries research, both financial diaries and livelihood diaries.
Diaries research, both financial and livelihood diaries is a force of change in various ways:
- the process of the research is a self-exploration and awareness raising process for the respondents,
- the researchers develop skills and prepare for a rewarding career while producing valuable fine-grained data accessible to all,
- the resulting data can inform about financial inclusion, about shortcomings of financial services and feed into product development (and the livelihood equivalent),
- the research can do impact measurement.
