Measuring impact in private sector development programmes is important but challenging.

This case study explains how Market Development Facility (MDF) selected the Before and After Comparison with Opinion Method for the Acelda intervention. It looks at why MDF considers this the most appropriate method for this intervention, and how they carried out the measurement.
