Microenterprise Graduation Program for Female Cash Transfer Recipients



Mera Maan Pvt. Ltd. partnered with the World Food Programme (WFP) to empower 200 female cash transfer recipients from vulnerable households in and around Quetta. The project aimed to foster economic self-sufficiency by providing comprehensive training, mentorship, and linkages to these women. It also focused on establishing sustainable social enterprises in the form of production cum training centers (PTCs) to offer tailored services to the community and generate revenue for self-sustainability.

Narrative of the Project Description:


 The initiative was designed to uplift women from disadvantaged backgrounds and equip them with the skills and resources needed to become successful entrepreneurs. By empowering these women, the project aimed to create a ripple effect of positive change within their communities, serving as guides, mentors, and role models for others.


1. Empower 200 female cash transfer recipients to achieve economic self-sufficiency through training and mentorship.
2. Assist the women leaders in setting up a Community Based Organization (CBO) registered with the Social Welfare Department.
3. Establish seven production and training centers (PTCs) as sustainable social enterprises to provide tailored services and generate revenue.

Project Impact:

 The project’s impact was far-reaching, as it empowered vulnerable women to become economically independent and active participants in the local economy. By fostering entrepreneurship and establishing PTCs, the initiative not only improved the lives of the beneficiaries but also created a lasting positive influence within the Quetta community.
