Cash handouts for poorest Liberians

cash transfer programme for poorest women in Liberia

The poorest women in Liberia, are being given cash handouts as a first step to getting out of poverty.

It's estimated that almost half of the population in the West African country are living in poverty…that's despite years of economic growth there.

The amount of money the poorest people receives is relatively low…just $25 a month…but for many it's a crucial lifeline.

Charles Appel has more details.
