SIF Gets Infusion of Cash for Poverty Alleviation

The Caribbean Development Bank (CDB) has approved ten million U.S. dollars to the Government in support of strengthening the Belize Social Investment Fund in order for it to continue providing services to poor and vulnerable communities across Belize. In a release issued by the Ministry of Economic Development, C.E.O. Yvonne Hyde said, “the four-year loan from CDB will significantly enable Belize Social Investment Fund to continue its outreach to touch the lives of additional thousands of Belizeans across the country in areas of socio-economic projects.”  According to the release, the Social Investment Fund, as an implementing agency of the Government, has implemented over five hundred basic infrastructure and social projects to assist in poverty alleviation in both rural and urban communities.
