The Livelihood Enhancement and Association of the Poor (LEAP) project was designed by the Ministry of Interior, with $USD 20 million of financial support from the World Bank to implement a 5 year-project (2017-2020). The project development objective is to improve access of poor and vulnerable households in selected communities to financial services, opportunities for generating income, and small-scale infrastructure, and to provide immediate and effective response in case of an eligible crisis or emergency. Key project beneficiaries would be ID-Poor and vulnerable households in the target 47 communes in Siem Reap Province and 13 Sangkat in Phnom Penh Capital. The project would be implemented in two distinct contextual and institutional environments of the mostly rural Siem Reap Province and the rapidly urbanizing Phnom Penh Capital. The core project activities would be separated into rural and urban components, each would have specific geographical scope and implementation arrangements are customized to each unique setting while maintaining consistency and continuity across the project.
