Understanding the impact the MIF has on private sector development and poverty alleviation, and understanding how these objectives can be achieved, are central to our work. To this end, the MIF has designed a series of measures to continuously improve our development effectiveness and quantify impact.
We bring best practices in results-based management to our projects, apply standards for monitoring and evaluation, conduct portfolio analyses to better understand our results, and commission studies that help us design highly relevant projects. We also heavily invest in impact evaluations to better understand the effects of our projects on micro, small, and medium enterprises and low-income households. Behind all of these activities is a state-of-the-art information system that integrates project management, reporting, and portfolio analysis.
