Appointing Coordinators in our Microfinance Program

In our ongoing mission to empower and uplift more women, we proudly announce the establishment of a new microfinance group in Bayan-Bayanan, a barangay nestled in Dinalupihan, Bataan, Philippines. Initially, we hesitated to open a group in this area because of its distance, but we decided to pursue it after the pandemic to expand our reach and help more women. This marks a significant milestone as our first group in the area, currently comprising 15 active and inspiring members.

Magdalena is the coordinator of our newest fellowship in the area and is a proud mother of eight children. While her eldest children have started their own families and left home, she and her husband, who is a construction worker, are still working to send the rest of their kids to school.

Magdalena is glad that our microfinance program opened a new group in their area, as she was also hoping to expand her business and add more items like feeds to her store. She knows that it is a long road ahead, but our program is giving her the push she needs in this journey. We also support her in her role as the coordinator of the group, as a good fellowship requires an active leader to encourage and foster a good environment in the group.

The Bayan-Bayanan community, through Magdalena and her fellow members, extends heartfelt gratitude to Captivating for sowing the seeds of change in their area. They hope to continue this journey and forge a path of resilience, empowerment, and financial freedom in their community.
