Mid-Term Evaluation of the Nicaragua Enterprise and Employment (E&E) Activity (2012)

Mid-Term Evaluation of the Nicaragua Enterprise and Employment (E&E) Activity (2012)

ME&A conducted the E&E mid-term evaluation for USAID from January to February 2012. For this evaluation ME&A assembled a team of three international consultants to inform USAID/Nicaragua of E&E’s contribution to enterprise development, trade capacity building and business climate, and business leadership development in Nicaragua. The ME&A team provided USAID with an informed basis on which to consider options for future economic growth assistance that would sponsor continued support for trade, investment, and employment.

To conduct the E&E evaluation, the ME&A team traveled over 3,000 km, interviewed more than 100 individuals, and visited more than 65 enterprises, small businesses, farms, associations and cooperatives, government entities, non-governmental organizations and donor agencies, employing both quantitative and qualitative data collection.
