The Loans Program lends small capital to start or to sustain existing family enterprises and encourages family participation and mutual help instead of competition among loan borrowers in the community. A father of one of our families lost his job and so they did not know how they will survive.
Their children were still small. They went to Bukas Palad and were able to avail of a loan to start a small business.
They learned to budget their time, their resources and they also learned to save which they never did before. Because of this, a new hope was born for their family.
