KMBI's Microentrepreneurs' Summit 2010 in Negros Occidental7:46 PM
A few months ago, I posted a list of institutions where Filipinos can avail of small business loans. The Kabalikat para sa Maunlad na Buhay (KMBI) is part of the list. This coming October, KMBI members in Negros Occidental will convene in this year's much-awaited Microentrepreneurs' (ME) Summit. This year's summit focuses on the theme, "Sulong ENTREP: Lahing Kayumanggi.
The ME Summit was first launched in October 2007 to help members of the Kabalikat para sa Maunlad na Buhay (KMBI) an opportunity to learn useful information and practical tips that they can use in their livelihood. The summit is anchored on KMBI's flagship program, ENTREP or Entrepreneurial Nurturing through Transformation, Reformation, and Empowerment Program. Thus, the summit reinforces KMBI's aim of facilitating the transformation of the spiritual, economic, environment, and social dimensions of the lives of its members.
The ME Summit 2010 will be held on October 23, 2010 at the Victorias Sports and Amusement Center in Victorias City, Negros Occidental. Mari Kaimo will be the moderator of the summit while Pastor Bong Saquing, Pastor Philip Tarroja, and Anthony Pangilinan and Maricel Laxa-Pangilinan will share their expertise to around 5,000 program members who will attend the event. A total of 1.9 million pesos in prizes will be given out in the Tulong sa Negosyo Raffle.
Since 1986, KMBI has been helping poor Filipino women microentrepreneurs to have access to loans, insurance and capital build-up. From serving 37 clients, it now serves more than 202,000 women all over the country with its 61 branches and 1,300 staff.
In the heart of its microfinance operations is the compassion to serve and facilitate transformation beginning with these women. KMBI puts a premium on values formation, capacity building and women empowerment. Visit the KMBI website to find out more about them.
