In addition to direct beneficiaries, it is intended, with the distribution of professional kits, to promote associativism and indirectly benefit 250,000 citizens.

The Cabinet minister reported that young unemployed and those seeking their first job are PAPE's target group.

According to Jesus Maiato, established and emerging entrepreneurs will also be supported, thus contributing to the process of promoting financial, fiscal and social inclusion, as well as fostering cooperativism and youth associations.
