About the Publication 

Thumbnail 3This is one in a series of USAID-commissioned case studies that examined interventions and approaches to creating pathways out of poverty that “pushed” the very poor towards productive engagement in markets and/or “pulled” the poor into markets. This case study looks at how the PSNP Plus project in Ethiopia piloted interventions to sustainably graduate households from dependence on cash and food transfers. It addresses key issues such as how to sequence project interventions to achieve graduation and the need for financial products tailored for the very poor.
