The Punjab Economic Opportunities Program (PEOP) is a flagship program of the Government of Punjab, Pakistan being implemented in partnership with the Department for International Development, Government of UK (DfID). The aim of the Program is to create inclusive growth and alleviate poverty in the Province’s high poverty districts. The Program is being launched in the Southern Punjab districts of Bahawalpur, Bahawalnagar, Lodhran and Muzaffargarh. PEOP’s two main components include: (i) increasing employability and earnings of low income, poor and vulnerable families by augmenting their skills-base through vocational training and (ii) increasing the access and returns to livestock income for the poor. This report presents the perspective of supply side providers in the livestock program.
