IVGS Initiative is Launched

ICF-SME committed to a new program, the Iraqi Vulnerable Group Support Initiative (IVGSI), launched to finance income generating activities of entrepreneurs displaced or forced to discontinue operations due to civil unrest.

IVGSI is a special initiative of the USAID-Tijara-Provincial Economic Growth Project representing its "inclusive development" theme and is designed to help 2,600 vulnerable Iraqi families and people whose livelihoods have been jeopardized from continuing threats and violence to improve their economic security for responding to social and economic shocks.
