Social Funds: Exploring New Frontiers Series
Session III
November 16th, 2005

The objective of the workshop was to provide guidance to World Bank staff on how income generating activities can be financed in the Bank context, in particular within Social Funds and projects using a CDD approach.  Using participatory methods, the workshop explored the pros and cons of grant financing vs. loan financing.  For situations where grant financing is most suitable, some lessons of experience were presented and discussed.  For situations where loan financing is most suitable, the workshop covered ways that access to financial services can be established, particularly in remote rural areas where there are no formal financial institutions or MFIs.  The workshop also included ways to combine grants and loans.
