Livelihood Development

Livelihood Development

Through its Entrepreneurial Development Program (EDP) and its Micro-enterprise Development (MED) program, P.R.I.D.E. has provided livelihoods for countless beneficiaries through loans provided for setting up grocery shops, cattle rearing facilities, small orchards, flour mills etc. To date, 671 beneficiaries have been given financial assistance for purchasing cattle, 134 for starting small orchards, and 257 for strengthening small business units.

P.R.I.D.E. has also been running a Dairy Development Program since 2004, which has till date reached out to over 350 beneficiaries. One of P.R.I.D.E.’s major successes lies in the reduction in the levels of migration of the local people to nearby towns and cities due to the creation of employment opportunities at the village level.
