Case Study of Cash Transfer to Traders during the Pakistan Earthquake of 2005

2011 — By Oxfam GB

This case study examines Oxfam’s innovative programme to provide cash/vouchers to local traders to re-establish their businesses and re-initiate an economic stimulus in order to help vulnerable people purchase, or put on credit, food and non-food items throughout the upcoming winter. The paper looks at the context, situational analysis, response analysis, rationale for choosing response and programme details. It then goes on to highlight the perceived benefits and impacts and draws lessons learned.
