In Burkina Faso, a team of enumerators administered Progress out of Poverty Index (PPI) interviews in 46 villages to 274 SILC groups. In total, 6,879 SILC group members were interviewed. In the same, or near-by, villages 2,336 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 78% of the SILC group members in Burkina Faso came from the poorer half of their community.
