MABS trains Cagayan Valley Banks on effective disaster management

To fortify rural banks’ readiness and stability in times of crises and calamities, MABS conducted a Disaster Management Workshop on October 29 at Mallig Plains College in Isabela. Thirty-eight participants from 17 rural and cooperative banks and 3 other microfinance institutions attended the workshop, which covered topics on disaster preparedness, disaster management execution and recovery, and review phase.
