MDIF provides financing and technical assistance to support the growth of sustainable independent news businesses. Measuring impact is critical to our work.
Each year we analyse changes in client reach, sales and other indicators of business performance to better understand how working with MDIF helps clients develop news business that are viable over the long term. We also assess the impact our clients have on the societies in which they operate.
