Now open to accommodate Program Members in the cities of Cadiz, Sagay, and Escalante, the Cadiz Satellite Unit formally opened its doors on June 29, 2017. The establishment is located at AVON Building corner Mabini Juan Luna St., Brgy. Zone 4, Cadiz City.
Highlighting the ceremony was Regional Director for VisMin Operations Ms. Amelita T. Andilab. In her welcome address, she stressed that KMBI is bringing its services closer to the convenience of the Program Members, as the latter are the reasons KMBI has been able to operate in more areas of the Philippines. She is optimistic that the satellite unit will grow into a full-fledged branch in the near future.
“We are confident that the Cadiz Satellite Unit will be an instrument that will help us facilitate real transformation not only in the lives of our Program Members, but also in the hearts of our staff,” she added.
KMBI Corporate Treasurer Dr. Edgardo F. Garcia commended the great agricultural potential of the area. He called for the active involvement of Program Members in their community, citing their vital role in cultivating their sector. He also gave weight to the responsibility of staff in sustaining and expanding the operations within the region.
“When we talk about transformation, it means the inner being and spiritual life are being given full emphasis, so that we do not only prosper economically, but also spiritually,” Dr. Garcia added.
The occasion was filled with inspiration by a testimony from Ms. Narcisa Dinson, a physically handicapped Program Member. She desires to empower persons with disabilities (PWDs) like herself by imparting the values she acquired from KMBI.
Another Program Member, Ms. Alma Fernandez, attested that she feels delighted and spiritually uplifted from the weekly center meetings of KMBI.
“Our weekly prayer meeting helped us nurture the spiritual aspect of our lives,” she shared.
Witnesses to the occasion included Negros Area Manager Ms. Sheila Dianne P. Ostrea, Victorias Branch Manager Mr. Ariel C. Alera, Roxas Branch Manager Ms. Berna E. Forones, Bacolod Branch Manager Ms. Jevelyn P. Bebanco, and Kabankalan Branch Manager Ms. Vanessa M. Gimena. Two representatives from the branch’s depository bank graced the event as well.
