UNRWA’s Microfinance Department (MD) developed three standard simple poverty scorecards (SPS) to enable it to determine the probability of clients being poor, i.e. based on those falling below the national poverty lines in Palestine, Jordan and Syria. The scorecards were derived from expenditure and consumption or income and expenditure survey databases of the government statistical bureaus in Palestine, Jordan and Syria. In Jordan, the SPS was constructed from the 2006 Household Income and Expenditure Survey (HIES). The SPS is a standardised methodology identical to the Grameen Foundation’s progress-out-of-poverty index (PPItm), which is now used in 46 countries to measure the probability of microfinance clients being poor based on national and other standard poverty lines. The SPS developed for Jordan was completed in late 2010 and this report is the first test of its implementation on UNRWA’s microfinance clients.
