Let’s say you want to invest €100 on MYC4 and want to influence as many people as possible with those money. Both the borrower himself/herself; his/her dependants and his/her employees. Where should you put your money, country- and provider-wise, if that’s your most important parameter?
As you can see in the chart above, KEEF and Tujijenge Uganda have historically had the most people influenced per EUR invested, whereas PRC and Tujijenge Tanzania have had the least. You could also observe the data as ‘Invested amount to support 1 individual (€)’:
As you can see in the table above, this gives you more or less the same conclusion, but emphasizes exactly how much you have to invest, to support one individual.
The data above includes the borrower him/herself, average registered employees for the loan and average registered dependants for the loan. The data only includes loans for which both dependants and employees have been registered. The data does not include people influenced indirectly, such as dependants of employees or such as people in businesses related to the actual investment, which for some industries might have high relevance as well. Ergo, the values are indicative not absolute, logic sense is still much welcome.
