Virinchi Development Services Private Ltd conducted a combined mixed methods midline evaluation / thought leadership research for a global programme on girls’ financial education and life skills, for which I was the lead global consultant overseeing all country teams. The team was led by Ms Shruti Pandey and Mr. Matish Kumar who I communicated with regularly over the course of five months. 

The India research required visiting five communities and conducting at least 400 quantitative interviews, 30 focus group discussions, and 15 key informant interviews. Throughout the entire process (from adapting field tools, training field teams, conducing the fieldwork which included very specific and frequent checks for quality assurance, analysis and reporting), Mr. Kumar and his team have been among the most responsible, responsive, detail-oriented, highly skilled, and ethical research teams I have ever worked with. The process was quite specific and complex in terms of what was required (being a global evaluation), and Mr. Kumar and his team delivered extremely detailed qualitative notes, perfectly cleaned and organized quantitative data, and a thought leadership research report that make insightful and important observations about the situation of girls’ financial education in India. I highly recommend working with them on any evaluation that requires field research…
