Linking Safety Nets with Microfinance
by CGAP, Ford Foundation in 2007
Community of Practice: Financial Services
After studying various institutional experiences, CGAP has found that using financial services to build on safety net programs can provide an important pathway for the poorest to “graduate” out of chronic food insecurity. After clients meet their consumption needs through a safety net program, accumulate savings, learn simple business skills, and develop financial discipline, they can use credit and other financial services to better manage their lives and pursue independent economic activities.
