“As part of its citizenship strategy of promoting enterprise development across the country, Citi Philippines formed a partnership with Bayan Academy to establish the Citi Microenterprise Development Center (CMDC). Funded by Citi Foundation, CMDC is envisioned to be a training haven for low-income but high potential micro business owners.”

With relevant training, coaching and mentoring, these individuals have the ability to grow their enterprises to the next level. In scaling up, CMDC will not only assist the microentrepreneurs and their families, but also their communities with more jobs created as a result of enterprise growth.

We are extremely pleased to note that encouraging results of the program’s pilot run, with 78% of program participants increasing their income, or employing additional people, or improving their loan performance. Some achieved a combination of two or all three of these objectives.”
