We are committed to impact at scale.

We prioritize rigorous evaluation in all that we do. Our data sources include a 3-year randomized control trial (RCT), evaluations by external firms, and a robust data collection system tracking the progress of our NGO partners and their beneficiaries.

All sources show consistent and robust impact that helps graduates of SBS lift themselves and their families out of poverty.

SBS entrepreneurs show significant gains in key economic areas that sustain well after graduation.
