A total of 150 representatives from diverse industry partners converged at 55 Events Place, Quezon City for the 2nd Partners’ Appreciation Night of KMBI last October 24, 2018.
The event, themed “Celebrating Connections, Embracing Innovations,” highlights the milestones KMBI has achieved through the connections the organization has with its partners and Program Members.
30 selected Program Members also graced the event to meet the institutions behind KMBI’s product offerings and how these connections work together to make its social and financial services more inclusive and accessible to the poor.
The Program Members also had an exhibit to showcase their products, with the aim of expanding their future network and exploring possible business partnerships. Two of these Program Members attested on how KMBI and its partners collaborated to uplift their lives.
In response to the clients’ testimonies, three of KMBI’s partners—First Life Financial Co., Unilever Pure-It, and APPEND—expressed their gratitude and committed to continually improve their processes to better serve KMBI Program Members.
Since 2016, the Partners’ Appreciation Night is being held biennially to promote the value of partnerships, and achieve common goals. This is in consonance with two of KMBI’s strategic directions which are: (1) to ensure sustainability of KMBI; and (2) to foster an atmosphere of trust built on integrity.
