SNV – Access to Finance Action – Research Report 2020
SNV commissioned the action research to support the implementation phase of the Opportunities for Youth Employment (OYE) project funded by Swiss Agency for Development Cooperation (SDC). The research undertaken in two districts of Goromonzi and Umguza sought to understand the various issues that led to limited access to finance by youth. The methodology used was a blend of qualitative methodology on the back of extensive desk top review, key informantinterviews with stakeholders with an interest in youth and focus group discussions held with young people in the two districts. The action research outcomes were presented and validated in November 2020 with key stakeholders including RBZ, ZADT, FAO, ILO, NYC and SDC.
