In 2015, while the Bolsa Família Program completed more than one decade of implementation in Brazil, the Republic of the Congo developed for the first time a pilot conditional cash transfer program: the Lisungi.
To promote the exchange of knowledge between Brazil and Congo, the WWP interviewed Alfred Kiakouama, the Lisungi team coordinator at the Congolese Ministry of Social Affairs, Humanitarian Action and Solidarity. He explained how the Brazilian model was adapted to Congo.
