Growth for Rural Development Advancement and Sustainable Progress Project (GRASP)

Pakistan Poverty Alleviation Fund (PPAF) is working with the International Trade Centre (ITC) and the Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) to implement the Growth for Rural Advancement and Sustainable Progress (GRASP) project. Funded by the European Union (EU) the Project aims to support gender inclusive income and employment generation opportunities in the livestock and horticulture sectors for 22 districts in Sindh and Balochistan by making improvements at all levels of the value chain. This will include identifying beneficiaries and business intermediary organizations in rural communities and providing them with technical trainings and opportunities to develop business linkages. The project is expected to facilitate access to credit for medium, small, and micro rural enterprises through linkages with financial institutions and relevant market actors in the ecosystem.
