Nicaragua Receives Loan from IDB

The IDB approved a $ 12.5 million loan for the Comprehensive Care Program for Nicaraguan Children (PAININ).

Thursday, December 9, 2010

The project aims to contribute to the development of children less than six years old in conditions of extreme poverty in rural Nicaragua and improve their opportunities, including timely entry into the educational system.

The Bank completed nearly 15 years of support for Nicaraguan children. Through institutional arrangements children and families whom benefit have access to early learning, daily food supplement and micronutrients, as well as health checks. There is also support for civil registration of minors and appropriate training for parents in parenting practices.

Through the years and at various stages, the PAININ has had important impacts on nutrition, growth, development and education indicators, becoming a hub for social policy in Nicaragua. The evaluation of the second IDB financing for this program indicated a net increase of 17.7 percentage points in the first grade enrollment of children aged six which were under the PAININ program. Other results of this phase include a net increase of 42.7 percentage points in early education assistance and a net increase of 13.3 percentage points in attendance at preschool.
