Knowledge for Poverty Alleviation (KPA) Framework - Talisayon and Suministrado Page 17 of 22 An initial application of the KPA framework to six of the most successful projects funded by the PEF provides some very interesting insights on the usefulness of this new framework in explaining project success (see Table 4). These cases assessed various community assets along different phases of the project: 1.Pre-project in terms of capital and vulnerabilities existent in the community even before the project; 2.During project implementation in terms of actual capital used, leveraged, and liabilities addressed; and 3.Post-project in terms of capital or benefits gained.

This first step provided insights on the cases. As the officer-in-charge of Foundation for Entrepreneurial Development (FEDI) stated during the presentation of the cases to partner institutions, ―I would like to affirm the KPA as a good tool and framework very akin to resource mapping done before the project.
