According to the journal of ADB, it has been calculated that 900 million people in the region -about 15% of all humanity survive on less than $1 a day. The bank found this unacceptable. Now the bank works closely with their 62 members and other partners to identify the key areas where their loans and grants will show greatest results in reducing poverty, creating sustainable economic growth and improving lives of the poor. The first and most crucial goal of this bank is to aid those living on less than $1 a day by 2015.
