Microfinance Women and Staff Supporting Each Other

A primary structure of our Microfinance Program in the Philippines are the women’s groups. Each group gathers weekly not only for loan repayments but also to check in on each other and form a close bond. Because of the pandemic, most of the Philippines has been placed on lockdown since last year. This has challenged our program to adapt and comply with the health protocols that each municipality has set. We are grateful to have a dedicated team who diligently visits each area and client.

Armand, one of the staff members, visits the microfinance women in their homes to motivate them to persevere despite the current circumstances. Although it takes longer time to go from one house to another, Armand still does it because of our strong commitment to support these women.

We are also happy to see some of our clients maximizing every opportunity to reconnect with their neighbors and encourage each other in this difficult time.
