The performance of participants in achieving the expected outcomes of the intervention depends on the poverty dynamics of the households, and on particular characteristics of the households at the time of program implementation.
Households in which the intervention is provided simultaneously to two household members show better results than those with only one participant.
The performance of participants in achieving the expected outcomes of the intervention is affected by exogenous factors that are not controllable by the participants or the program. However, the savings component of the program and the existence of family support networks are effective in mitigating the effects of these shocks.
The state of aspirations and expectations of participants changes over the course of program implementation, and program outcomes depend on these changes, as well as on the initial level of aspirations and expectations of participants.
The achievement of the expected outcomes is driven by elements of the design and implementation of program activities; in particular, the tablets and the manager play an important role in the operation of the program.
