The people-powered portfolio of the province of Gorontalo has 37 interconnected initiatives within the 5 levels of intervention.

Among them there are some existing projects that are working well for the community, new prototypes that emerged from the previous processes (deep listening, sensemaking and co-creation) and pilots ( inspiring projects working in similar regions) all correspond to a pattern of narrative ( personas). The portfolio is divided into 4 thematic areas: tourism, food system and development of local products (Prukades), waste management and infrastructure.

During the prototyping phase in 2022, the SIP team on the ground have worked to implemented one of the prototypes in Ponelo Island: Development of the featured products of the village cluster – PRUKADES, which is considered a crucial tool for the growth of the local economy in the Ponelo villages. This can be achieved by improving the quality of these products, creating better marketing strategy and enabling market linkage. Therefore, providing the business owners and producers with adequate tools and knowledge were the first conducted activities around this prototype. From these trainings, three products have been selected as prior to be developed into a business plan and to scale up on a second phase: fish floss, banana chips and dried anchovy processing.
