Sovereign Project | 41118-012

Summary

The project will provide direct access to assets and affordable infrastructure services for individuals or community groups undertaking small scale investments and who otherwise would not have access to such services. Indirectly, these assets and services will allow greater productivity of the urban poor and, along with complementary capacity development activities, will generate income growth.
