In Senegal, a team of enumerators administered Progress out of Poverty Index (PPI) interviews in 56 villages to 271 SILC groups. In total, 8,468 SILC group members were interviewed. In the same, or near-by, villages 1,858 PPI interviews were also administered. When comparing the SILC group members to the reference, the data show that the SILC group members were poorer. When performing a village-by-village comparison, the researchers found that 61% of the SILC group members in Senegal came from the poorer half of their community.
