MicroTest Survey, A Brief Phone Call

We are planning to conduct a telephone survey of REAP clients in March. This effort is part of the MicroTest client survey sponsored by the Microenterprise Fund for Innovation, Effectiveness and Learning and Dissemination at the Aspen Institute.

The purpose of the survey is to gather reliable information about microentrepreneurs directly from clients. REAP has a strong commitment to track and understand our clientsí needs:

  • To truly assess the effectiveness of our program
  • To be fully accountable to donors and other stakeholders, and
  • To build a strong advocacy case for microenterprise development in Nebraska and the U.S.

Peggy Mahaney, REAP Administrative Assistant, will be conducting this phone survey through March. All information specific to individuals and businesses will be confidential. We sincerely appreciate your valuable time.
