Training is very essential to our micro loan beneficiaries so they can start their own business and also provide them with additional skills and knowledge. We teach women on how to make beaded jewelries which recently became popular due to its increasing demand both domestic and abroad. We also have trainings in handmade cards/calendar making; sewing; cooking; meat processing; cosmetology; and many more. To promote product awareness and encourage sustainability, Ms. Lyzle Munalem, our Arts and Trade manager, came up with this concept of consolidating these trainings and create an association among the mothers. She called this project MILK which stands for Mga Inahan Laban Kawad-on meaning mothers fight against poverty. Currently, our livelihood trainings are well participated not only by our micro loan beneficiaries but also include mothers with children who are recipients of our school sponsorship program. To help the mothers promote their products locally we transformed our old office and gave room for a display center. If you happen to buy one of our merchandise be it the bayongs, beaded jewelries, handmade cards or calendars, you already provided a family with rice, a staple food in the Philippines, which cost less than a dollar per kilo. And for sure you feel the joy with us as we serve this less privilege people in our locality.
