Under USAID’s Accelerated Microenterprise Advancement Project Knowledge Generation project, researchers collaborated with U.S. PVOs to better understand their experiences and future potential roles in the commercialization of microfinance and transition to private capital. The research had three parts: a primary survey and interview research, secondary literature review research, and a one-day facilitated workshop to bring together thought leaders from the leading PVOs.
