The Ramon Aboitiz Foundation Inc. (RAFI) Micro-finance participated in the 1st Pilmico Expo recently at SM Cebu Trade Hall.
RAFI Micro-finance showcased its products and services, such as loans, capital build-up and insurance.
More than 400 people visited the RAFI Micro-finance booth. They were given an orientation on the RAFI Micro-finance program and other programs of RAFI.
“The exhibit gave us the chance to orient the people of our work in helping women micro-entrepreneurs and their families in their financial needs. It was also a great break to reach out to prospect clients,” Dominic Sencio, Cebu City Branch manager, said.
RAFI Micro-finance members, especially those who are into hog raising, feeds selling and bakery operations, were invited to the various symposia of the participating partners in hog and gamefowl raising and baking business.
“It was a good venue for our clients to learn ideas and be inspired on alternative business options,” said Charen Rabasano, branch manager of Balamban.
Micro-finance is a program under the micro-finance and entrepreneurship focus area of RAFI, providing financial resources and know-how to women micro-entrepreneurs to nurture financial independence and entrepreneurship. Other focus areas of RAFI are integrated development, culture and heritage, leadership and citizenship and education.
