Leverage Factor

Effectiveness is hard to estimate. We try.

Value of $1 to the very poor

20 x

Investment factor

1.25-1.75 x

Additional value add because money is invested on development rather than squandered on consumption

This later factor might seem low but realize that if it was 2 or 3 it would be easy for a country to work its way out of poverty by investing in and taxing the output of development projects.
