Jim Kim: New Program Provides Services to Mexico’s Poor

November 20, 2014

Jim Kim: I was just in Mexico to join the launch of its innovative Prospera social protection program, which is the country’s latest innovation in helping connect the poor and vulnerable to social services as well as improve the health and education of themselves and their families. The World Bank Group has approved a $350 million low-interest loan and has added our expertise to partner with Mexico on this ambitious new initiative. In this video, I’m joined by Arup Banerji, who explains why Mexico’s new program could be helpful for countries around the world.
