The Oportunidades Program provides income transfers to poor households on the condition that they send their children to school and attend regular health checkups. The program began operations in rural areas but it was extended to urban areas in 2003. An extension to additional urban areas in 2009 has been made with some additional training and microenterprise support components. Specifically, transfers of approximately USD 150.87 per child are provided in exchange for beneficiaries keeping their children and attending to their basic needs. Mothers are also required to attend health and nutrition training.
