A total of P 282,134,650 loans have been released to 21,123 micro entrepreneurs in Caraga region through the Rural Micro Enterprise Promotion Program (RuMEPP).

They include the six pioneer MFIs - Green Bank of Caraga, Peoples Bank of Caraga, Enterprise Bank, Talacogon Multipurpose Development Cooperative, Siargao Rural Bank and Rural Bank of Placer and the more recent additions - Rural Bank of Cantilan and Socorro Empowered Cooperative.

DTI’s attached agency - Small Business Corporation (SB) implements the micro finance component while the Regional Operations and Development Group (RODG) through its five regional offices and 19 provincial offices, takes care of the micro enterprise development component.

RuMEPP aims to help poor entrepreneurs and rural families in the country by providing them access to credit and other financial services coupled with business development services such as capacity-building, market linkages and product development.

The program is implemented in the poorest 19 provinces in five of the poorest regions in the country, focusing on areas with the highest potential for enterprise development. Its primary objective is to see increasing numbers of new and existing rural microenterprises expanding and operating profitably and sustainably. (DTI-Caraga/PIA-Caraga)
