A total of 10,300 KMBI Program Members from all KMBI Branches participated in the recently concluded Center Leaders' Conference (CLC) since January 2019. Program Members from other partner microfinance institutions, such as Taytay sa Kauswagan Inc. (TSKI) and UPLIFT Philippines Inc., also joined the series of events.
The programs were made possible through the joint efforts of the Transformational Development and Training Group (TDTG), Management Services Group (MSG) and Credit Operations Group (COG).
Among the topics discussed was responsible citizenship in which KMBI encouraged community leaders to become movers of the nation by actively participating in national events including the recent May 2019 elections. The CLC also imparted financial literacy tips to the participants.
The conferences concluded with a livelihood seminar that taught Program Members how to make beaded accessories, such as earrings, bracelet and necklace.
The events were in coordination with KMBI Partners: First Life Financial Co., Pinoy Ako Insurance Services (PAIS), Standard Insurance, Philippine Bible Society, Philippine Cancer Society, KMBI Development Foundation Inc. (KDFI) and APPEND Inc.
The CLC is a capacity-building program which aims to enhance the leadership capacities of center leaders to make them better in dealing with people and managing their communities.
