AGFP Orientation – Oct 3, 2014 in Orchid Garden Suites

To All Participating Rural Banks:

Subject: Invitation to Register in the AGFP Orientation

As part of the RBAP’s continuing strategy to strengthen the rural banking industry, the Rural Bankers’ Research and Development Foundation, Inc. (RBRDFI), in partnership with Agricultural Guarantee Fund Pool (AGFP), a program of the Department of Agriculture (DA) that encourages financial institutions and other credit conduits to lend to small farmers and fisher folk, will be conducting:

Date: October 03, 2014 ( Friday), 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM

Registration: FREE

Venue: Orchid Garden Suites Manila 620 Pablo Ocampo St., Manila

This one day orientation is in line with the concern that some RBAP member banks have not yet accessed AGFP services and that many still lack confidence to extend agricultural loans to Small Farmers and Fisherfolks (SFFs). Thus, it is envisioned that through this orientation a better understanding of AGFP and best practices on agri-lending among banks would mitigate the risk associated in lending to the agricultural sector, likewise address the need for access to credit.

In this regard, we would like to invite you to attend and actively participate in the said activity. Rural banks with CAMELS 3 rating or better are highly encouraged to attend.

Training Details:

1) Registration is free
2) AGFP will cover participants meals : AM/PM snacks and lunch
3) Training handouts
