This is so because these students will be the same students whom we started with from primary school.so by looking at the numbers of students getting loans will be able to measure the successful of the idea.

The business model will be like this,Students in primary schools will start learning business skills,from there they will continue with the programme to secondary school. This will help to retain the students in school hence reducing the rate of school dropout.
