L-IFT offers self-diaries as a service through which individuals can themselves report about different aspects of their lives, such as their financial lives, their livelihoods, their energy and their progress as an entrepreneur or seeking jobs.

The participants of the self-diaries access their interviews via a smart phone app. Currently the frequency is weekly but in the future the participants can choose themselves at which frequently they want to report.

The participants of self-diaries can access t heir reported data later and compare their own behavior to the entire group. Potentially they can use these diaries to demonstrate to a bank or others about their income and expenditure which may support them in a loan application or for instance obtaining a credit card or enter an entrepreneurship training programme.
