The ERKF project was designed to support the Government of Pakistan in the economic recovery and revitalization of the crisis-affected areas of KP and FATA. The crises resulted in enormous destruction, internal migration/displacement, and massive loss of livelihoods. The adverse effects of these crises were much more pronounced in KP and than the rest of the country. The Project became effective in October 2011 and since then has supported revitalization of the private sector enterprises in the crisis-affected regions through direct support for the Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs), investment promotion and institutional capacity building. The project was financed by the World Bank as a Grant under the Multi Donor Trust Fund (MDTF). The project has so far supported the SMEs to the tune of US$ 20 million.
