Name of Project - Economic Prosperity for Rural Poor through Remittances Disbursed via LOLC Finance
Period of Project - 15th June 2011 to 30th June 2013
Goals & Objectives - The goal of this project is to reduce poverty of the families of migrant workers and their communities and to integrate the families of migrant workers into the formal sector. Through this project we also propose linking remittances to rural financial products and services and to make more productive use of remittances. In order to achieve the goals set out in this project we initially undertook a survey of migrant and trans-national migrant families to identify their financial assets, obligations, indebtedness, flows and needs. Thereafter, a training is provided to migrant worker families to (a) set attainable financial goals according to their earnings, (b) comply with strict financial discipline and, (c) on financial literacy.
