The impact of a challenge fund on women's economic empowerment in Afghanistan

The impact of a challenge fund on women's economic empowerment in Afghanistan

The Afghanistan Business Innovation Fund (ABIF), managed by Landell Mills Ltd with funding from the UK Department for International Development (DFID) and the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) was a pilot project focused on incentivising investment in private sector-driven solutions to market constraints that impact Afghanistan’s poor. The project ran from 2011 to 2015. This learning brief has been developed to illuminate lessons that could be drawn out from the Afghanistan Business Innovation Fund (ABIF), particularly concerning how gender considerations played out within the context of a pilot M4P-focused (making markets work for the poor) challenge fund in an untested market.
