MONROVIA, LIBERIA-The Ministry of Gender has begun empowering vulnerable people in rural communities through its cash transfer program.

Gender Minister Williametta Saydee-Tarr said:” The Ministry is providing money to people who do not have any means of sustaining themselves.”

Minister Saydee-Tarr said funds for the project were loaned to the Liberian Government by the World Bank Group.

She told ELBC Wednesday, October 23, 2019 that the project is part of the Ministry’s Social Protection Program to lift people out of poverty.

The Gender Minister, however, emphasized that loan will be repaid to the World Bank and called for the sustainability of the program through budgetary allocation.
