From Poverty to Prosperit
Comprehensive Programme on Asset Transfers, Interest Free Loans and Skills Trainings

poorest households out of poverty and set them on a course of economic and social prosperity. Its components include (i) asset transfers; (ii) interest free loans and; (iii) vocational and skills training to
make assets productive.
