CGAP Financial Diaries with Smallholder Households 2014-2015
Other Household Survey [hh/oth]
The study was conducted in 3 countries: Mozambique, Tanzania and Pakistan.
In order to elucidate the financial lives of smallholder households and build the evidence base on this important client group, Consultative Group to Assist the Poor (CGAP) of the World Bank launched the year-long Financial Diaries with Smallholder Families (the "Smallholder Diaries"). The study captured the financial and in-kind transactions of 270 households in Tanzania, Pakistan and Mozambique, of which 94 households are in the Punjab province, the breadbasket of Pakistan.

The methodology and sample size of the Smallholder Diaries was designed to generate a rich pool of detailed information and insights on a targeted population. The Smallholder Diaries are not intended to be statistically representative of smallholder families in participating countries. Total number of households in sample from Pakistan was 94. The sample came was drawn from 2 villages in Pakistan. Villages were selected based on their involvement in agriculture, and convenience in reaching them. The research teams used a screening process to help identify a range of families with 5 acres of land or less, diverse income sources, access to agricultural inputs, wealth levels, and crops to participate in the research. In Pakistan, the sample was selected using a traditional screener survey with questions related to household demographics, crops and livestock, main income sources, and wealth indicators, administered to all households in the selected villages. As a supplement to this process, village leaders and community representatives were consulted to help ensure local participation and eliminate households with large landholdings, harvests per year, use of inputs, and integration with local markets and a variety of families were chosen.
