|Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy||
The continued development of viable small business enterprises is an essential prerequisite to poverty reduction in the rural areas. Opportunities to engage large numbers of people in rural enterprises are limited but in recent years innovative developments in the livestock subsector have played an important role in increasing cash incomes through improving production, value addition, quality improvement, creating employment for the rural poor. Such livestock enterprise development programs have been particularly successful in reaching poor and destitute women. The accompanying microfinance and supporting technical services including veterinary services delivered through informal group have provided households with the knowledge and confidence to expand and diversify their livestock enterprises.
Livestock related activities play important role in increasing income of rural households and thereby reducing poverty in rural areas. Poverty reduction being Government's priority area of inerventios, the project having special focus on women's socio-economic empowerment, has close link with country's recently adopted poverty reduction stategy.
