Towards the end of the two-week rotation from January 17 to 28, 2011, the group concentrated on working on the following:I. I. Operation Workflow On the second day of the two-week rotation, the group, together with three officers from Sagip Kapwa, had the chance to visit Card MRI, a non-profit organization that acts as a support group for other microfinance organization. Its objective is to be a formal banking institution at the service of the poor, mainly landless rural women, lending them money to develop small-income-generating activities. This capital will serve either start-up businesses or expand existing businesses. The whole group along with Dr. Allan Evangelista went to observe their operations and got some insight on what different aspects of their organization might be applicable to Sagip Kapwa. The details of the field trip and the feedback from the Sagip Kapwa officers are in the additional sheets provided. After incorporating Sagip Kapwa officers’ inputs after the field trip in Card MRI, the entire team devised a couple of recommendations to revise the operations during collection. The group replaced the Sagip Kapwa officers’ during one collection day to fully understand how the collection was being done. Time analysis was also done, along with observations of the actual collection to serve as baseline to ensure that the changes will be an improvement rather than a setback to the operations. Feedback from the officers was always incorporated in every change that was made to ensure that there would be less resistance to change. Details on the workflow revisions are in the additional sheets provided.II. II. Short-term and long-term fundraising activities To address short-term financial sustainability, the group, together with the Sagip Kapwa team, initiated the preparations for the Raffle event. Mechanics, prizes, and other operations were discussed.

Feedback on the field trip • Their process was very fast but it’s done all at the same time • It’s very structured because they already know who will pay that day and how much they’ll pay. The problem is, in Sagip Kapwa, people come as they please so it is impossible to know who will come per day. • Their payment is already in big amounts because it is collected weekly but in Sagip Kapwa, their money is collected daily and in whatever amount. • Their interest is very high, compared to Sagip Kapwa which is just 3% • It is an advantage that they have Philcare, which is applicable for OPD also. This is what Sagip Kapwa really aim for. • There are no penalty fees in Sagip Kapwa compared to theirs which has penalty in even the smallest things (ie. Not bring their ID to the meeting, being late in the meeting, etc) • Their loans are categorized into educational, repair loan, etc. vis a vis Sagip Kapwa which is not categorized. • It is also an advantage that they have an education part (CWE) but in SK cathechism is alsto taught and there is also bible sharing. • It is also admirable that they have that they have songs and oath every meeting. • Sagip Kapwa also doesn’t have ID, only T-shirts for the officers • Minutes also are very structured. • Prayers – SK prayer but not done everyday • Vocal confirmation of withdrawal is also their advantage ! "#!
LEC Sagip KapwaDaily Activities and OutputJanuary 17 to 28, 2011 • Recommendation #1: o At the end of the day, folders are stack up with the cashier. During the accounting of cashier and receipt, ledger people will now audit, oral confirmation of the amount of deposit and savings ! However, this takes up time and it is an additional step • Recommendation #2: nd o Plastic container for the receipt will not count money anymore, 2 count will be the cashier • Recommendation 3: o Forms are inserted in the middle of ledger and receipt, counterchecks the previous and new entry plus entry in the forms. No counting from forms and receipt. Money counting only done by ledger and cashier • Recommendation #4: o Steps are indicated in the ledger plus reminders to check the name, etc ! ""!

Observation of Sagip-Kapwa volunteers • The manner and speed (~5 minutes per customer) by which they do things speak a lot about the how long they have been doing this system and the level of expertise they have achieved • Bottle neck still remains at the receipt issuance station, despite average time of ~50 seconds for the receipt offer to finish processing one transaction. And this bottleneck is further aggravated if there are a lot of people arriving all ath the same time • Another step that prolongs the whole process is when they look for the file/ledger of the members in the file cabinet. • There is still the problem of accountability when data is inputted in the ledgers. The ledger officers are technically tasked to sign their names at the end, but this is not being done. • The ledger forms are not really followed. Savings are placed in loans and loans are placed in savings • Money and the tendency to fly and the coins to fall to the ground Recommendations: • Daily schedules for when people could show up. This is to decrease bottle neck at the receipt station • There should be separate ledger forms for loans and savings. smaller so that it can be placed in a small notebook • Conduct a volunteer workshop to remind them of proper data inputting and identify probable poke-yokes • Address the money inside the folder.

LEC Sagip KapwaDaily Activities and OutputJanuary 17 to 28, 2011 III. Audit Data st • Father and the Volunteers had a short meeting after the 1 day of audit. It was discussed that some members may be open to being talked to about the errors and fixing them. • In the 2010 Income Statement, from a Net Income of P91,334.16, it would be reduced to P85,488.16 after subtracting the losses calculated from the 2 audit days. Father Eugene agrees with this calculation. • A question was asked on how to write the corrected errors in the financial statements if some members agree to a compromise. The suggestion was to place payments to miscellaneous income. IV. Operations Recommendations (discussion left open) • There are 2 main recommendations by the group. The first is to have 2 volunteers doing the current work of Ate Maya and the second is to have a Ledger Checker before receipt issuance. There were several problems pointed out from these suggestions. One of them involving the tallying at the end of the day. • It was also pointed out that Ata Clarice would have more work from the suggestions and the added paperwork • Reverend Purnomo agrees that the suggested plastic bags can work but problems can arise with the receipt issuance. (e.g. What would happen if the receipt was already issued and errors were found) • Father Eugene and the volunteers want to count money for each step • Another suggestion of placing the receipt issuer and cashier together was turned down by Father Eugene because he explains that they totally have different jobs V. SAGIPAPREMYO • The raffle’s objective was explained to Father Eugene and the volunteers was for short term sustainability • Father wants the activity on Friday as more of a formal General Assembly, instead of party-like. The partying could be done for the raffle draw date itself. • Prizes were changed as was discussed when the letters were amended. • Father Eugene agrees that the raffle expenses should be minimized as can be. • Tickets: o Father Eugene wants the ticket bundles to be to have 25 tickets instead of 50 o Ticket design: !

Implementation of revised monitoring system - This was postponed as of now. The project head feels the hesitation of the manager and some of the volunteers in implementing an additional step (filling up the revised monitoring sheets) within the daily operations. Ate Neneth points out the lack of manpower and piling up of other jobs. The project head proposes to continue talks with the volunteers regarding the implementation of monitoring system and ask for their inputs/suggestions.II. Implementation of recommendations for operationsA. Meet-up at the Xaverian house - The group met at the Xaverian house to finalize the strategy for operations. - There was a concern raised, if there is really a need to introduce a change, considering that daily operations work smoothly. - The group decides that small changes can improve operations and translate to less mistakes and loss for the Sagip Kapwa.B. At the Site - Strategy implemented o Use of plastic bags (sandwich bags) for handling money deposited to avoid misplacement along transfer per station o Make the receipt counter stop the counting (Ate Maya) o Make the receipt counter do a ledger check (arithmetic and countersigning of ledger) before transfer to cashier o Make sure the customer gets the acknowledgement receipt and updated passbook o First come, first serve. From the ledger counter, processed folders should be placed below the pile, so that the receipt counter (Ate Maya) will first process the folders of members who arrived first. o The ledger people and the cashier will count the money. !

As part of ourcurriculum, we were assigned to work with a community to incorporate our learning not just in medicine but in public health andmanagement as well. For three years, we have been working with Sagip Kapwa Project, a microfinance program situated in SitioMilitar, Brgy. Bahay Toro, Project 8, Quezon City. The project is headed by Xaverian missionaries, under the leadership of Fr.Eugenio Pulcini. The project is managed by a team of volunteers, who themselves are members and residents of the community ofSitio Militar. The main target of Sagip Kapwa project would be the informal settlers of this community who are in need of financialsupport for their small businesses.Sagip Kapwa differs from other microfinance programs as it strongly stresses on the Gospel-like attitude of helping out the poor,providing more flexible terms and packages. In the same way as other microfinance programs, Sagip Kapwa promotes self-help andfosters cooperation and community building. Currently, Sagip Kapwa offers loans and savings services for adults and kids, as well assubsidy for Philhealth. There is no intention by the project to earn profit in itself and as such only a small interest is charged to coverfor the project’s most basic operational expenses. To continue to serve its members, it is imperative to find means to ensure thesurvival of the organization.Therefore, our group is working together with the Sagip Kapwa volunteers for a fund-raising activity, namely Sagipapremyo RaffleProject, to be launched this January 28, 2011, with the final draw to be held this coming April 1, 2011.! .0+!1#2-*%#3!4%55%+3#*%-56!"%/%+!4%7%/#*6!8*$96!8#:#9!;+*+6!)*+,-./!<6!=>-?+3!@%/96!! ):+3-I!JDKCL!MFGGGEF!

Bahay Toro, Project 8, Quezon City. The project was born out of the pastoral mission of the Catholic Church to spread the good news of salvation through evangelization and socially relevant projects for the poor. The project has been initiated and is being undertaken under the guidance of the Xaverian Missionaries through Fr. Eugene Pulcini, the priest in charge of the Chapel, with the acknowledgement of the OLPH Parish Priest.
