In 2010, Freedom from Hunger conducted “impact stories” research to look at the life events, opportunities, program perceptions, food security and poverty levels of 41 members of Savings Groups formed through the organization Le Tonus in Mali. In 2012, 31 members were interviewed a second time in order to compare outcomes and analyze progress among members. Individual stories have been written for each respondent to describe their experiences with the program in a holistic way, and the aggregate outcomes are described in this report. Sample stories are provided in the appendix.
