IDB Backs Peru's Social Reforms

The Inter-American Development Bank is lending USD100 million to bolster Peru’s social protection and labor programs.

The loan will support the conditional cash transfer program called Juntos, as well as the Comprehensive Health Insurance program, which funds essential health services for poor mothers and children. It will also help to boost the Peruvian government’s labor programs including the youth employment training program dubbed Projoven, the National Employment Service of Peru, and the temporary job program named Construyendo Peru.
