The cases featured in this book may be the first systematic effort to apply SROI in the Philippines.[DI is] a tool for quantifying qualitative outcomes of development interventions, and for measuring the level of transformation among relevant stakeholders assisted by a social enterprise or resource institution.[SROI] seeks to quantify the social costs and benefits that a social enterprise generates, including what may otherwise be considered as intangible benefits.From the introduction by Marie Lisa M.
