Combining Social Protection with Economic Opportunities in Rural Peru : Haku Wiñay
MetadataShow full item record
Haku Wiñay targets rural households living in extreme poverty. To maximise its efficacy, the intervention is being deployed in the same rural areas where Juntos, the Peruvian conditional cash transfer (CCT) programme, is being implemented. It is part of a joint strategy aimed at strengthening households’ ability to sustainably overcome extreme poverty. The project focuses on the development of productive and entrepreneurial skills to help households strengthen their income generation and diversification strategies, as well as to enhance food security. The document recognises that the implementation of the project has been slower than expected in areas where FONCODES had no prior experience. This was the case for the components focused on promoting small business opportunities and financial education.
