The Livelihood TRIAD
Micro-credit by itself is helpful for the more enterprising poor people in economically dynamic areas. Less enterprising poor households need to start with savings and insurance before they can benefit from micro-credit, because they need to cope with risk. However, in backward regions, poor people, in addition to microfinance, need a whole range of Agriculture, Livestock and Enterprise Development Services need to be provided. To offer these services in a cost-effective manner, it is not possible to work with poor households individually and they need to be organized into groups, informal associations and sometimes cooperatives or producer companies. The formation of such groups and making them function effectively, requires institutional development services; hence, the Livelihood Triad.
