The World Bank Group contracted ICL to conduct 500 surveys with non-micro (4+ employees) SMEs in Blantyre and Lilongwe cities. The surveys measured certain capabilities and characteristics of business owners and managers to inform the Bank’s development of firm graduation/evaluation criteria and ultimately inform future support to SMEs in the country. Imani worked collaboratively with the Bank to develop, refine, and translate the questionnaire; access business listings from the National Statistics Office (NSO) and other partners providing services to SMEs to develop a sampling frame; conducted the requisite 500 surveys with business owners and managers; and provided all data management and cleaning.
