GENEVA, March 9 (KUNA) -- The International Organization of Migration ( IOM) and USAID implementing partner USAID-Tijara have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to cooperate on private sector small business development in Iraq, with an emphasis on assisting vulnerable, conflict-affected groups. The MoU aims to help small businesses through USAID-Tijara's Iraqi Vulnerable Group Support Initiative (IVGSI) - a programme that complements IOM's Programme for Human Security and Stabilization (PHSS) and Community Revitalisation Programme (CRP) livelihood initiatives in Iraq, said the IOM Spokesperson Chris Lom in a press briefing. "Under the agreement, IOM will identify and select from among its beneficiaries vulnerable people who want to expand their businesses through access to microfinance institutions, and refer them to USAID-Tijara, which will in turn help them to access credit under the IVGSI", he explained.
