  • Sustainable poverty alleviation for the extremely poor requires greater coordination between programs and strategies focused on expanding household incomes and food security and programs focused on larger-scale market development. World Vision, CARE, and ACDI/VOCA share their experiences with push-pull strategies and lessons learned in a peer-reviewed article in the Enterprise Development and Microfinance journal. Read the peer-reviewed article.
