Peru and Colombia: Asset Building Initiatives

Global Asset Building

Global Asset Building

We have provided policy and research design support to nongovernmental organizations in Peru and Colombia as they develop three asset-based poverty alleviation initiatives. The objectives of these initiatives, which target the rural poor, especially poor women, are to increase participants’ access to financial services and to help them to build assets.
