"This report is the first follow-up to the impact evaluation of the Kyrgyzstan Women's Leadership in Small and Medium Enterprises (WLSME) activity commissioned by the Office of Gender Equality and Women's Empowerment (GenDev) in the United States Agency for International Development's Bureau for Economic Growth, Education and Environment (USAID/E3). The report summarizes the data collection and analysis methods and provides initial findings and conclusions based on baseline and post-intervention data collection and analysis of the Kyrgyzstan WLSME activity. The impact evaluation plans to collect two more follow-up rounds at 12 months and 24 months post-intervention; thus, this report contains only initial findings that could be observed at the end of the activity."
