At MFO, one of our key tasks is to provide market research for organizations that are looking for the best possible way to reach their clients. Our market research tends to focus on specifically vulnerable groups of people (see our ‘Who’ section) in hopes of helping organizations provide these people with services they need to escape their vulnerability.
Our work involves various methodologies that help us capture different data on consumers. Our work falls under qualitative and quantitative studies, and we have unique methods for collecting our data that separate us from others in the field. If you are interested in the different techniques that we use in our research, we have several studies and explanations that can help you learn all that you need to know.
