KENYA FINANCIAL DIARIES SHILINGI KWA SHILINGI - THE FINANCIAL LIVES OF THE POOR

 

The Kenya Financial Diaries was an ambitious project designed to deepen 
understanding of the financial lives of low-income Kenyans by capturing 
all of their transactions over the course of a year, through fortnightly visits. 
Alongside quantitative records of money flowing into and out from the study 
households, interviewers recorded respondents’ stories, perceptions, and the 
events happening in their lives. 
This project – one of the largest of its kind – covered 300 households about 
evenly distributed across five areas of the country. It provides a new and deep 
view of how Kenyans get by on low-incomes and offers new insights into 
how they use and think about their money. These insights can be quite useful 
to institutions serving the poor, offering up new perspectives on how the 
financial barriers to saving, borrowing, health care, education, and investing 
might be overcome
