I think one question is in particular whether those with the potential to influence (spending) decision-making or those who are able to apply for funds (e.g. when tenders are made public) receive information in a digestible format at the right time. It may well be that villagers are informed about public financing initiatives, but if they can't translate this knowledge into concrete action that would influence the decision on how much money they (or their public services) receive. In other words: If the radio would inform local citizens that they may directly apply for specific funds and they wouldn't react to that this would be surprising. But the mere fact that the radio is available doesn't seem to be a sufficient condition for a change in behaviour.
