Uganda - Poverty Alleviation Project - PPER
Poverty reduction has been for several years the overarching goal of the Bank Group and its Regional Member Countries (RMCs), which are now actively involved in promoting micro-finance as an important tool for poverty reduction. The Uganda Poverty Alleviation Project (PAP) was the first of its kind to be financed by the African Development Fund (ADF) in Uganda and also the first of its nature in Bank Group operations. The unique feature of the project is that it was the first ADF-financed project, which heavily relied on NGOs in delivering micro-finance services to the poor in project target areas, and it used a participatory approach, which relied on involvement of beneficiaries in all stages of micro-project development.
