Day 1 we conducted pre-testing and validation of the interview guides at a village located 20 minutes drive from Mzuzu city. We split into teams of two and conducted interviews with village chiefs, village health workers, households that shared chimbudzi, households with improved/basic chimbudzi and households without a chimbudzi.
At the end of Day 1, the workshop participants compiled the Market research – Suggestions and interview guide.
You may like to use this to guide your formative market research.
