Community Investment Fund (CIF)
The main purpose of Community Investment Fund (CIF) is to provide a capital grant by the Rural Support Programmes (RSPs) to Community Institutions (CIs) i.e. COs, VOs, and LSOs. The CIF is targeted at the women from poor and poorest households, and is used by the CIs as revolving fund. Poverty Score Card (PSC) is used to identify the eligible households to ensure that only the poor and poorest households (with Poverty Score 0-23) will access CIF capital and start income generating activities.
