L-IFT is a social enterprise specialized in Low-Income Financial Transformation (L-IFT).

We are specialized in diaries research in economic related fields: financial diaries, livelihoods diaries, agricultural diaries and energy consumption diaries. We look at a large range of issues covering behavior, attitudes, skills and knowledge (BASK).
The objective of the diaries research are:
- impact measurement and/or programme monitoring,
- product development and/or product testing,
- programme design and policy formulation
The research brings along dual results:
a) Appropriately trained staff: the field-research will be done by students for whom the fieldwork prepares them for a career as loan officer in microfinance, mobile money agent or savings group promoter.
b) Detailed data on behavior: continuous flow of data on behavior and preferences in the field of financial inclusion, livelihoods, agriculture and/or energy.
