Leaving all the doubts behind, overcoming all the challenges along the way, ASA Philippines has finally touched the historical milestone of having over one (1) million active borrowers in its account only in 11 (eleven) years from its inception. ASA Philippines was able to show its exponential growth because of its commitment to its borrowers and staff.
We are indeed grateful to our borrowers for the trust and confidence they have shown, embracing our services, diligent payment on time. Their continuous patronage through on time payment; that made this foundation sustainable without depending on grants or donations.
We are also grateful to our heroes, the Microfinance Officers of ASA Philippines who accepted all odd tasks of attending sit-downs, facing risk of being held-up and meeting motorcycle accidents. And those have led them through the right path, guided through the core principles. To all BM, AA, RA, DD, Directors and Sr. Directors for the passionate drive of growth they have demonstrated. Their extraordinary commitment, exemplary passion and commendable integrity made all these possible.
To the Board, for the full support and guidance.
Most of all, we are thankful to the Almighty for this wonderful gift, guiding us all the way to create this magnificent microfinance organization, not only in the Philippines but of South East Asia and Pacific.
