THE IMPACT EVALUATION ASSESSMENT OF THE VSLA PROJECT IN NASARAWA AND PLATEAU STATES, NORTHCENTRAL, NIGERIA.
Oxfam is a confederation of 20 affiliates operating globally in more than 120 countries working to see a world without poverty. We are a worldwide development organization that mobilizes the power of people against poverty. Around the globe, we work to find practical, innovative ways for people to lift themselves out of poverty and thrive. We save lives and help rebuild livelihoods when crisis strikes. And we campaign so that the voices of the poor influence the local and global decisions that affect them.
In Nigeria, Oxfam works to influence policy change in favour of the poor and most vulnerable, promoting food security and supporting small-scale farmers to improve the livelihoods of men and women in rural areas.
Oxfam in Nigeria focuses on:
• Meeting vulnerable people’s needs: saving lives.
• Sustaining increased incomes for the poorest.
• Transforming attitudes about women’s roles and rights.
• Increasing active citizenship, and the accountability and transparency of public and private sectors.
Central to our work is the belief that power relations need to change to enable poor people to demand and claim their rights. We work with a wide variety of development partners and allies, such as community organizations and civil society groups at the local, state, and national levels to achieve our goals.
The purpose of the learning is to conduct an impact evaluation assessment of the Village Savings and Loan Association (VSLA) project, which will be used to preserve project achievements, answer specific project learning questions and contribute to future project development initiatives in Nigeria.
The Oxfam in Nigeria VSLA program has been implemented in 8 states across Nigeria including, Plateau, Nasarawa, Kebbi, Adamawa, Taraba, Bauchi, Katsina and, Benue states covering more than 2000 communities. A total of 10,505 VSLA groups and 101 VSLA federations have been established reaching a total of 259,113 individual households with 67 percent female representation. Over 4 billion Naira (NGN) have been mobilized by the groups with 2 billion (NGN) disbursed as loans to about 40% of group members while the average returns on savings stand at 17.4%. equally, more than 10,000 women have been trained in Income Generation Activities (IGA) and started new businesses while so many have been able to expand their existing ones. The intervention is not limited to female members as there are over 30 percent male beneficiaries. Several gender transformative approaches have been integrated into the VSL approach and this has been stepped down across groups and extended to MDAs
