ADFIAP Consulting (AC) has successfully completed its training program on SME financial inclusion with the theme, “A High Impact Sustainable SME Finance” for the branch managers, credit advisers and credit investigators of Bangko Kabayan (BK), a multi-awarded rural bank in the province of Batangas located at the southern part of the Philippines. BK has a total of 16 branches and ranks among the top 3% of rural banks in the country today.

A total of 28 participants from the bank participated in the extensive 4-month training program. The agreed loan approval targets at the end of the training program hit 104% realization rate. Given this encouraging performance, the training enabled the bank to further strengthen its SME lending infrastructure and capability to identify and spot viable projects and properly evaluate, measure and mitigate risks relative to SME lending. Achievement awards were given to the participants who showed exemplary performance and who contributed the most to the attainment of the loan generation targets.

The training program was delivered through a series of highly-interactive lectures and structured learning exercises cum practicum activities supplemented by personalized coaching sessions to maximize participants’ learning spectrum. The training covered 5 modules, namely: All about SMEs; the SME banking opportunity; holistic approach to SME lending; early warning recognition and remedial management; and presentation skills.

Resource persons for the training program were AC consultants headed by Ms. Corazon D. Conde, together with Atty. Alberto B. Reyno, AC Managing Partner, Ms. Arlene Orencia, AC Projects and Programs Head and Ms. Cecilia M. Ibarra, Head of AC Advocacy and Training.
