In Zambia, a team of enumerators administered Progress out of Poverty Index (PPI) interviews in 63 villages to 110 SILC groups. In total, 1,198 SILC group members were interviewed. In the same, or near-by, villages 531 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 60% of the SILC group members in Zambia came from the poorer half of their community.
