Programa Solidaridad (Solidarity programme)
Conditional cash transfer programme (CCT) developed after the economic crisis that hit the country in 2003. It is part of the Social Protection Network of the Dominican government. It has facilitated the implementation of new cash transfers to different target populations through the Solidarity Card and ADESS (Administrator of Social Subsidies). It has also contributed to the creation of a social provision network (small businesses or commercial establishments) in priority areas of poverty, to which have access programme beneficiaries, ensuring the availability of food stocks of the basic food basket and strengthening small businesses by increasing their income and their integration into the formal banking system.
