IPI (India-Peru-Indonesia) Cross-Border Exchange Initiative IPI (India-Peru-Indonesia) Cross-Border Exchange Initiative
Virtual Virtual

IPI (India Peru Indonesia) Cross-Border Exchange Initiative is undertaken by three APLP G20 fellows with the purpose of learning from each other's company/institution, discovering similar issues, and finding solutions based on practices in other countries. It includes but is not limited to sharing knowledge, resources, skills, technical expertise, and ideas to build sustainable and inclusive futures for our communities. Alphina is empowering South Indian women through financial inclusion. Magaly is empowering Japanese immigrants through lending capital for their SMEs. Robert is empowering small farmers by value-adding their produce through social certification. The leaders of these three initiatives share similarities. First, they all come from developing countries but the way they empower their communities are different. Another is that they worked with one group of marginalized and excluded people, but  then realized there were ways to help others: financial inclusion for immigrants  in India; supporting small farmers in Peru add to their produce to compete in the global market; or expanding financial inclusion to women in villages throughout Indonesia to build their livelihoods. That's the beauty of a cross-border exchange initiative. It can give you ideas and possibilities of proven projects in one country that can be adapted to another country.
