According to the WB website, the project aims to expand access to the Cash Transfer Program, to improve selected nutrition behaviors in priority target areas, and enhance the MOSWRR’s capacity to deliver social protection programs.
According to the World Bank COVID webpage, this project will support COVID relief efforts in Myanmar. That website states:
"Over 126,600 women (pregnant women and women with children under two years old) in Ayeyarwady Region and Shan State were enrolled in the program by late August 2020. The beneficiaries have now received 6 months of cash payment, totaling MMK 90,000 (15,000MMK/$US11.50 per month). Cash distribution began on Sep 9, 2020 through private payment agents, namely AYA and KBZ banks. To date 50% of beneficiaries in Shan State and 70% in Ayeyarwady Region have received payments. Cash is being transferred through E-wallet or through the nearest AYA Pay or KBZ Pay agents. The next round of cash distribution will be in January 2021."
