This impact evaluation aims to measure the causal impact of the ILO’s Get Ahead business training programme on the profitability, growth and survival of female-owned businesses in Kenya, and to evaluate whether any gains in profitability come at the expense of other business owners. To do so, the evaluation will use a randomized control trial (RCT) methodology with a two-level randomized experiment: randomized selection of villages, and of individuals within villages. The study works with 3,538 individuals in 157 markets. In addition to measuring the impact of this training program, individuals assigned to training are also then randomly assigned to one of three different invitation choice structures to measure the extent to which variations in the way in which people are invited to training affect training take-up.
Business Survivorship. Sales and Profitability: Total sales in the last day, total sales in the last week, total sales in the last week of product accounting for largest share of profits, average weekly profits over the last 2 weeks, mark-up profits in the last week of product accounting for largest share of profits, third party valuation of business inventories for sale. Standardised profits and sales impact will be obtained by aggregating these different effects as a standardised z-score. Standardised profits/sales obtained by aggregating above effects as standardised z-score.
