Description
The objective of the Rural Enterprise Development Project for Afghanistan is to improve employment opportunities and income of rural men and women, and sustainability of targeted local enterprises. Over 75 percent of the people of Afghanistan live in rural areas where agriculture is the primary activity. Lack of access to finance and business know-how, poor infrastructure, inadequate marketing, and poor post harvest practices are limiting economic development and constraining on-farm and non-farm employment opportunities, thus perpetuating poverty in rural areas. The project will support (a) community-led enterprise development aimed at forming 13,000 savings groups, 6,500 enterprise groups and 1,300 village and savings loan associations impacting half a million people ; and (b) small and medium enterprises (SMEs) development with a target to foster access to finance to 750 SMEs which have rural and agricultural linkages. The grant will finance part of the project costs. The Government intends to seek co-financing from the International Development Association (IDA), administered Afghanistan Reconstruction Fund (ARTF).
