The First Pakistan Poverty Alleviation Project (PPAF I) aimed to alleviate poverty and empower the rural and urban poor by providing them with access to resources and services. The project had a special focus on the poor women who often end up facing the brunt of poverty the most. The project was pursued by PPAF and involved the entity supporting programmes of nongovernmental organisations (NGOs) that had an impressive track record of poverty alleviation and met with PPAF’s eligibility criteria. The objective was to be achieved through an integrated approach by increasing incomes of poor households by providing them with loans and technical support ; as well as increasing access for the poor to physical infrastructure to improve their livelihood opportunities and enhancing the institutional capacity and financial sustainability of NGOs and PPAF. NGOs, who were later termed as Partner Organisations (POs) were seen as the mediums for transferring resources to the poor.
