The way Krochet kids monitor their progress could be an interesting way to assess the success of this project and the areas in which it could be improved.
Yes, and I'd be interested in seeing the data visualizations, understanding the details of what data items are being monitored, and how this is used in supporting the enterprise.

@James I recently had the privilege of witnessing first hand a livelihood development project in Sri Lanka for war widows. The way Krochet kids monitor their progress could be an interesting way to assess the success of this project and the areas in which it could be improved.

Helping the poorest workers in the world is not the typical application of analytics, but it works.
It's common sense that destitute women would spend everything they earn for some time after they start working. Data collection across hundreds of workers allows "Krochet Kids" to know when to introduce the topic of saving money -
We know the women are going to spend their money on quality-of-life improvements in the first couple of months, and then at the sixth month, they'll start to think about savings.
That's a huge step and it happens earlier than I would have guessed.
