Leaving all the doubts behind, overcoming all the challenges along the way, ASA Philippines has finally touched the historical milestone of having over 1 million active borrowers in its account only 11 years from its inception. ASA Philippines was able to show this 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, and diligently making payments on time. Their continuous patronage and timely payments have 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 such as attending sit-downs, facing the risk of being held up and meeting motorcycle accidents. Those tasks have led them through the right path, and guided them through the core principles. Heartfelt thanks to all BMs, AAs, RAs, DDs, Directors and Sr. Directors, for the passionate drive for growth that they have demonstrated. Their extraordinary commitment, exemplary passion and commendable integrity made all these possible.
We extend our profound gratitude to the Board, for their 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 in South East Asia and the Pacific.
