total goal
monthly donors


The poorest, chronically food insecure households especially women members, with irregular income and little or no assets are often excluded from development interventions including microcredit. When they do receive the assistance they are rarely able to improve their conditions enough to maintain long-term sustainable livelihoods.


Khudmukhtar combines support for immediate food consumption with revolving livestock asset base to kickstart an economic activity and provides, skills training, market linkages to adopt value addition practices under the value chain perspective. The model gives recipients an 18-month period to develop sustainable livelihoods & graduate out of extreme poverty and hunger to address Millennium Development Goal # 1. The model includes carefully sequenced interventions.
