Launched in 2015 and implemented by BRAC, the Jibika project under the Bangladesh Partnership Initiative was designed to promote entrepreneurship for sustainable income growth of poor and marginalized farming households around the Chevron-operated gas fields. Over 2,000 micro-entrepreneurs have gained improved access to finance, farming technology and extension support. Additionally, over 4,000 trainings on leadership and enterprise development have been delivered by this project thus far.
