We are a not-for-profit organization devoted to helping an increasing number of poor Filipino families rise out of poverty by providing microfinancing to help them establish or otherwise improve their own microenterprises. This shall result in increased family incomes and savings, while giving them greater access to life support goods and services in the most cost-effective and sustainable manner. Communities benefit as well from the goods and services provided by our micro entrepreneurs.


ASA Philippines Foundation is committed to three sectors. The first commitment is to the marginalized poor sector for which the Foundation exists. The second commitment is to the staff members who are dedicated to achieving the Foundation’s goals. The third commitment is to the founders and patrons to make ASA Philippines the best and most self-sustainable MFI in the country. To these ends, we shall:

  • deliver the highest value for money, client-responsive microfinance as well as supplementary products and services to the poor through the enterprising women of each family;
  • create the best place to work in, where all staff members have the chance to live in dignity, develop a career path and experience the fulfillment of changing other people’s lives as well as their own;
  • be self-sustaining and be the best managed microfinance institution in the Philippines.


ASA Philippines Foundation was conceptualized by Mr. Kamrul H. Tarafder. Mr. Tarafder started work in the microfinance industry with ASA Bangladesh.
