Testimonials

Impact

Datu carried out research into the self-replication of savings groups in Uganda, leading to findings that have significantly influenced the microfinance industry’s strategies for expanding this sector at low cost. The research was thorough, insightful and sophisticated and was carried out with enthusiasm. It was a pleasure to engage with an organization that cared about the work it was doing and that produced exceptional results.

Synthesis

Datu’s ability to synthesize complex data on the world’s most pressing challenges and distill the most important lessons is unmatched. Their work has helped us gain a holistic understanding of a very complicated, and often opaque, industry and apply it to our advocacy.

Expertise

Datu ably and quickly became knowledgeable on farmer adoption of conservation practices and used their deep expertise at gathering and sifting data to deliver insights that will be useful for the entire conservation sector.

Insight

I was impressed by Datu’s ability to quickly become experts on a very niche industry completely unfamiliar to them. Datu’s ability to find the most relevant data, provide insights, and make connections is incredible. The result of Datu’s research is one of the leading proof-points in EDF’s work on oil and gas environmental issues, which is testament to the quality and rigor of their work. I would strongly recommend Datu to anybody looking to better understand the complex nature of supply-chains and the implications for their own work.

Objectivity

We’ve worked with Marcy Lowe and Datu across multiple engagements, noting their diligence, insight and objectiveness. Their understanding of supply chains and economic relationships—across multiple sectors—we consider the best in the business. They’re our first call when it comes to consultants who get the details right, and get the big picture.
