“…The FGD for mothers in the non-microcredit group was conducted at an easily accessible central location in the community at a time when the majority of mothers were available. FGD interview guides were translated into the local language and back translated into English, to ensure proper translation (Jagosh & Boudreau 2009). Open-ended questions were asked to encourage discussion and to explore any issues that arose (Patton 2002).…”
