Rural livelihoods & entrepreneurship development

ProPoor: South Asia Development News

The South Asia Rural Livelihoods Cluster includes World Bank project teams and implementing teams in Afghanistan, Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka who are implementing multi-sector programs targeted to the poor. Livelihoods projects focus on building institutions of the poor, empowering them, building their capacity, and aggregating them so they have the bargaining power to negotiate for better consumer prices, and better prices for their goods, and to access financial resources.
