NAPC gathers 90 microfinance clients in Surigao Norte

The National Anti Poverty Commission (NAPC) in partnership with the People's Credit and Financial Corporation (PCFC) successfully gathered 90 microfinance clients, micro-entrepreneurs, academes, and representatives of community-based organizations including local leaders throughout Caraga Region last Oct. 1-2, 2008 for the Provincial Training Seminar for Financial Literacy Trainers Program in Surigao del Norte.

Director Florante Rosal, Jr, Head of Microfinance Unit said the 2-day activity was part of the Philippine Microfinance Agenda which was launched on October last year. The activity also served as an avenue for the participants to increase savings especially among "small" savers.

The initiative according to Rosal also sought to widen the window of opportunity for participants to build their knowledge and capacity on microfinance management, services and access and eventually become financially literate.

Earlier, NAPC and PCFC were already conducting series of activities in the region to advance financial literacy and further boosts the widespread delivery of financial education for poor microfinance clients, particularly in priority provinces in which Caraga region's five provinces: Agusan del Norte, Agusan del Sur, Surigao del Norte, Surigao del Sur and the newly created province of Dinagat Islands are part of this program.
