  • It is important to have a policy and regulatory environment favorable to the MF industry in order to have sustainable MFIs that would continue to provide the much needed financial services to poor households.
  • RA 8425 defines microfinance as a credit and savings mobilization program exclusively for the poor to improve the asset base of households and expand access to savings of the poor. It involves the use of viable alternative credit schemes and savings programs including the extension of small loans, simplified loan application procedures, collateral-free arrangements, alternative loan repayments and minimum requirements for savings.
  • Development grants for capacity-building of microfinance institutions and beneficiaries shall be funded out of the earnings or income of the PDTF. The Corpus of the PDTF is the amount allotted by the RA 8425 in the total amount of Four Billion and Five Hundred Million Pesos (Php 4,500,000,000) over a span of ten years, but remains to be adequately funded with only Php 100 million in trust at present. The disbursable portion shall consist primarily of the earnings of the PDTF and may include additional amounts expressly donated, contributed or granted by local or foreign sources.
