Interview Guide: Serao Ladies 1. Tell me about yourself. 2. Can you share how the project came about? 3. What is your role in the project? 4. How did you become involved in this project? 5. Can you share the processes in creating sunhat? 6. How was this experience for you? 7. What are your hopes for this project? 8. How to further improvement the project? Interview Guide: SOCOE 1. Can you share with us how the project came about. 2. How was the local community engagement? 3. What were the aims of the project? 4. What were some of the processes involved in this? 5. What type of economic impacts does this project create for the local community? 6. What do you perceive to be the social value created by this project in the community? 7. What are some challenges you experienced along the way? This study is the first to use Social Exchange Theory (SET) in Social Entrepreneur (SE) studies and contributed the 'benefits' of socioeconomic transformation, social values, long-term strategies, and 'costs' of challenges variables to SET. This study confirms that SE has facilitated 'socioeconomic transformation' and 'social value' and 'long-term strategies' for rural community, apart from challenges. 'Socioeconomic transformation', 'social value', 'long-term strategies' and 'challenges' are the themes identified during the coding process.
Steps to reproduce
An invitation to participate in this study was issued to the Serao Ladies and SOCOE upon receiving ethical clearance on 25th February 2022 (Ref: 20225546-9283). The researchers provided a detailed information sheet to the research participants before collecting any data. Nine Serao Ladies from Tanam Village were interviewed one-on-one from 18th August 2022 to 20th August 2022, and SOCOE was interviewed on 8th August 2022 through semi-structured interviews. Semi-structured interviews enhance the quality of the data gathered and ensure that questions are adequately conveyed and answered (Xie & Huijser 2020). Researchers took written notes during the interviews detailing the responses of those interviewed and returned this to participants for confirmation before being used as project data. Interviews were recorded as a backup precaution, with the permission of interviewees. The interview questions were informed by literature and divided into two sets: the first was addressed to the artisans, and the second was to SOCOE. Serao Ladies were first asked about themselves and how the n-DEL project came about. For example, ‘Tell me about yourself,’ ‘What is your role in the project?’ Follow-up questions were used to understand better the n-DEL project ‘What are your hopes for this project?’ How to further improve the project’. SOCOE was asked about economic impacts on the local community and the challenges experienced. For example, ‘What type of economic impacts does this project create for the local community?’ ‘What are some challenges you experienced along the way?’
