Senegal - Poverty Reduction Project - Completion Report


The Poverty Reduction Project (PLCP) was approved in June 1999. It was cofinanced by the Bank Group, with an ADF loan and a TAF grant, the Nordic Development Fund (NDF) and the Senegalese Government. The ADF Loan and TAF Grant Agreements were signed in August 1999 and the initial and supplementary NDF loans signed in 1999 and 2004. The project was a follow-up to the Project to Support Women’s Advancement Groups (PAGPF) approved by the Bank Group in 1991 and completed in 1999, and was aimed at consolidating the achievements of the PAGPF in the framework of the implementation of the Government’s national poverty reduction programme. The overall objective of the PLCP was to contribute to poverty reduction in Senegal. Its specific objectives were: (i) to raise the educational level, strengthen the technical and vocational skills, as well as the self-promotion capacities of the target groups; (ii) build their income-generating capacities; and (iii) promote access to basic services.
