Togo: Novissi cash transfer program is back, with a few changes

(Togo First) - A few days after it was stopped following the easing of anti-covid restrictive measures, the Novissi cash transfer scheme is back even if it will no more be the same. 

Indeed, the government revealed that the program has been amended for better adaptation to the national response strategy to the pandemic. The revised Novissi will focus on specific parts of the country, based on expressed needs, just like restrictive measures which are now applied at the district level (with a focus on districts recording a high contagion rate). 

The government thus urges populations to keep registering with the scheme (using the code *855#), in the event their district, unfortunately, has to be subjected to a curfew. 

Over the period it was active, around XOF11 billion were distributed to around 500,000 people in Togo (a great majority in Grand Lomé and Tchaoudjo) in the framework of the Novissi cash transfer scheme. The money was given to retailers (40.29%), tailors and seamstresses (16.28%) and housewives (12.44%). Out of the beneficiaries, 65% were women.
