Senior Management Orientation

Senior officers of Aurora Rural Bank, Country Rural Bank of Taguig, First State Bank of Iloilo, New Rural Bank of Agoncillo, and the Rural Bank of Taal attended the MABS Senior Management Orientation (SMO) on June 16 to understand more about the MABS Approach to Microfinance. They were led by newly-elected RBAP President Ma. Corazon Miller of the Country RB of Taguig.
Among the participants were representatives from the Rafael B. Buenaventura Microfinance Foundation, a microfinance-oriented non-profit institution led by Mr. Leonilo “Topper” Coronel and Mr. Mike Andaya.
The SMO usually serves as a venue for rural bank presidents, chairpersons, general managers, other senior officials or members of the board to have an overview of the MABS learning modules in market research, product development, loan administration, pilot testing, and operations review for application on microfinance operations. It is the first step of the MABS Approach to Microfinance modules, providing the participants insight into the trends and challenges in the microfinance industry and its relevance to rural banks.
MABS is a United States Agency for International Development (USAID)-funded program in partnership with the Rural Bankers’ Association of the Philippines (RBAP), with oversight from the Office of the President through the Mindanao Development Authority (MINDA).
