Reaching the most vulnerable requires we go the extra mile in finding innovative ways of creating ladders of opportunity. Governments can use CCTs (Conditional Cash Transfer) and other safety net programs to drive financial inclusion, and when combined with the graduation approach, they can help people move from government support to generating income-building assets from their own livelihoods. We will discuss lessons learned from various graduation programs and explore opportunities for cost-effective, scaled-up implementation through MFI, NGO, donor and government programs.
