COPE Tools

This database file is aimed at helping microfinance institutions (MFIs) track and monitor their client outcome performance indicators. It is built to 1) compile clients' poverty levels using the Progress out of Poverty Index (PPI) developed by the Grameen Foundation and other user-defined data collected through a survey and 2) provide a general analysis as well as a detailed analysis of the possible correlations between indicators.
