Poverty Alleviation Project in Western Terai

Poverty Alleviation Project in Western Terai

Poverty in the Western plains Region is widespread and is on the increase. Economic opportunities are limited and population growth is very high. The poor in this area are either landless or have very small plots of land to cultivate. The goal of the project was to increase the incomes and improve the welfare of smallholder farmers, and landless people, particularly women, in the project area. Local people were supported as they formed small groups to manage credit, receive skills training and organize community development activities. The project also strengthened institutional support for the groups and improved access to water resources.
