Our Community

CARD, Inc. envisioned women empowerment when it started in 1986. Now, stories of how we changed women’s lives all over the country are living testimonies that indeed, our vision is coming to life. We make it happen by giving the best service we could give while building meaningful partnerships with organizations and individuals with the same mission as ours.

In 2013, CARD, Inc. decided to go back to the core purpose of its establishment: to reach the poorest of the poor families. Thus, the Microfinance Services for the Harder-to-Reach Poor (MSHRP) was established. It aims to develop poor communities by assisting them financially through microfinance services. What sets MSHRP apart from the usual CARD, Inc. Operations is that it trains the members to become financial literate for five weeks before being allowed to avail of loans. Now operates in the poorer communities in the province of Bicol and Quezon.
