Based on bank documents, the Grant Development Objective is to reduce poverty and vulnerability in selected underserved areas of Yangon and Mandalay, by reducing vulnerability to sanitation and environment related diseases; making access to basic services easier by reducing the need to borrow money for investments in homes, including water and sanitation facilities; and improving the opportunity for the targeted population to participate in local and national economic development.
