    Funded by the Millennium Challenge Corporation and implemented by El Salvador’s Millennium Challenge Account (FOMILENIO in Spanish) from 2008 to 2012, the Productive Development Project (PDP) aimed to assist in the development of profitable and sustainable business ventures for poor individuals in El Salvador’s Northern Zone. A rigorous impact evaluation of the Production and Business Services (PBS) assistance, one component of the PDP program, found two promising findings. PBS had a statistically significant and positive impact on employment generation for the handicrafts value chain, and PBS assistance to dairy producers significantly raised these individuals’ productive income.
