This paper investigates whether the Targeting the Ultra Poor program can lift households out of poverty in a fragile context: Afghanistan.
Challenging the Frontiers of Poverty Reduction- Targeting the Ultra Poor (CFPR-TUP) programme of BRAC implements two interventions for the ultra-poor: a grant-based support package for specially targeted ultra poor (henceforth STUP support package), and a credit plus grant support package for other targeted ultra poor (henceforth OTUP support package). The target group of the OTUP support package is drawn from relatively well-off households than the STUP ones. Further, the STUP support package is more expensive compared to the OTUP.
