Impact & Performance Indicators

Impact Study in Bolivia and Peru

In February and March 2015, a study was conducted by an independent consultant in order to measure the impact of Microjustice Services in Peru and Bolivia. The study shows the legal empowerment provided by Microjustice Country Organizations significantly improved people’s lives. Having valid legal documents of various types allowed for:

  • an expansion of fundamental political freedoms such as the right to participate in decision-making forums and effectively advocate for public support;
  • an expansion of economic freedoms such as the right to sell, rent, and mortgage property and access welfare payments; and
  • an expansion of social freedoms such as the right to education and healthcare.

While these impacts vary depending on both the client demographic and the case type, this initial research shines a light on the positive changes that many people have experienced thanks to Microjustice Services.
