Poverty reduction program kicks off in Herat

Poverty reduction programs in rural areas worth 170mn AFN have been initiated simultaneously in four districts of Herat province.

Governor Rahimi called on transparency in the implementation of the programs and emphasized that qualified people must be hired for these programs through a transparent process.

Benefiting 15,000 families in rural areas, the three-year program covers poor families in the areas of agriculture and livestock and small businesses.

Economic analysts said the programs would have a major impact on the economic conditions of the impoverished people.

The programs are being implemented by the Coordination of Afghan Relief (CoAR) organization who has put a tag price of 170mn AFN, equivalent to USD 3mn, on these programs.
