The BPP partnership was a pivotal enbaler for the Village Energy business in India. It helped to provide credibility, structure and funding that contributed to our success. The partnership helped to develop our relationship with DFAT which was vital during the project and as we seek to expand to other countries.

The BPP is a clear example of “doing development differently.” Thanks to our partnership with private sector partners, Jup Viec, LienVietPostBank and the Australian Government, CARE has supported thousands of migrant women to have a decent job and access to financial services. We could not do this without this innovative program.
