Five loaves and two fishes for a multitude

According to this, the DFID has paid BRAC (which has spent) the sum of circa 24 million pounds to raise 4 million rural people from extreme poverty to sustainable livelihood. That comes to 6 pounds per person: so 6 pounds is all it requires to raise a person out of poverty permanently in just 7 years? Per year, that comes to less than 1 pound per person. I suddenly remember reading that Christ multiplied five loaves and two fishes for a multitude while delivering a sermon on a mountain. This guy Abed and the DFID must know some powerful prayers.
