Income-Generating Project for Marginal Farmers and Landless

The project's primary objective was to raise the standard of living among the poorest rural families by promoting activities both on- and off-farm), through credit.

By the project's end, more than 48,000 small farmers' groups had been set up by the Ministry of Agriculture. About 38,000 of the groups received at least one loan and nearly all of the groups received training in financial planning and management. The incomes of the participating families rose by between 41 and 54 per cent on average.
