[Full Text]



Dr. Virginia Berganio



Manila, marginalized citizens, microfinance, microfinance technology



Human resource is one of the key factors in national development, especially for the City of Manila in which its population is fast increasing due to unabated migration of people from the country side to look for better economic opportunity. It is coupled with the ever increasing Manila youth and adult population (part of the total workforce) who are unemployed due to lack of the appropriate working knowledge and vocational and technical skills needed by the business and industry sectors. The main thrust is to implement effectively its educational direction. The primary objective of this study was to develop a program on Microfinance Technology NC II. This course is designed to provide basic knowledge; skills and desirable attitudes for the marginalized citizens of Manila who would like to become a Microfinance Loan Officer and be competent to interact with clients in providing microfinance loan and other services for start-up or expansion of a small or micro enterprise. Assessment shall focus on the core units of competency. The basic and common units shall be integrated or assessed concurrently with the core units. It should be based in the collection of evidence of the performance of work to the industry required standards. Successful candidates shall be awarded a National Certificate signed by the TESDA Director General.
