Microfinance Group Unshaken by Quake

A few weeks ago, the Philippines was taken aback by a series of quakes that shook several provinces in the Central to Northern part of Luzon and some other provinces in Visayas, causing severe damage to properties and lives. But not this microfinance group in the rural parts of Bataan.

Not minding the pending aftershocks and the few kilometers they have to walk to meet, these mothers remain committed to meeting each other every week – repaying their microloan repayments, sharing stories, and encouraging one another.

Before the session ended, Flo from Honor 1000 Movement encouraged each of them to keep working hard and stand strong in their communities. This meant a lot to the group of women and reminded them that every bit of effort and hard work they exert today is a step towards building their homes on dignity and securing their families’ future. Likewise, their unity within the fellowship group serves as their solid ground that helps them stand firm despite challenges.

There are currently 2,271 women and their families who are part of the Honor 1000 Microfinance Program.
