New financing window fit for MSMEs M ICRO, Sma l l and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) can now take bolder steps to progress as new and exciting financing windows are available here in Cagayan de Oro. Globe Banko and Negosyong Pinoy Finance Corporation are only two of the financial institutions offering newest business loans without collaterals ranging from P100,000 to P2,000,000. Capital has been one of the greatest hindering

factor for expansion among MSMEs especially those who have quality and marketable products. Usually, MSMEs are faced with tough decision to refuse orders and drop o p p o r t u n i t i e s b e c au s e of its inability to expand production or improve productivity and efficiency through technology upgrading. This is where financial institutions come in handy. To help MSMEs address this, the Department of Trade and Industry Misamis Oriental Provincial Office conducted

A tricky problem

hink a minute.Have you ever stood by a fire when the smoke was so thick you almost thought you could grab it with your hands. But if you try, the smoke just disappears right through your fingers. It’s like that when we try to be humble. We grab for humility, but as soon as we think we’ve got it, it disappears like smoke through our fingers. You see, we trick ourselves when we start to think that we’re humble, because in our mind and heart we actually start feeling proud of ourselves that we’re humble. So you see, we’re still very proud. Our problem is the subtle, deceptive nature of pride. It makes us self-conscious, thinking about ourselves and how we good we are or look in front of others. Our pride competes and compares ourselves with others. That’s why we get angry when someone treats us like we’re not important. Our pride makes us want to act and impress others with how humble we are, when inside we still think we’re more important than some people. This is also why many people want to become rich millionaires. You see, if everybody in the world had a million dollars, then not many people would

Trials and opportunities “Nothing in life is to be feared. It is only to be understood.”

I

always liked the above quotation. For me, it is so liberating and uplifting. It means that despite the trials we encounter in life, which is non-stop because every day brings its own sorrows, it is still wonderful to be alive. We cannot stop the sun from shining, the same way that we cannot stop the problems from coming. When we comprehend that, we also understand that there is no reason to be afraid. How can we fear something which is natural and a part of life? Rather, we face it with unshakeable trust, because the Giver of Life has ordained it. He sent the trial to grow us up. Not to break us, but to build our strength. When we embrace this truth, then we can eyeball with fear and not be crushed. We will be free to drink from the cup of joy, and worthy to claim it as our just reward. I’ve always lived my life cautiously, in an ordered and secured way. I avoid taking unnecessary risks, and I don’t

A Minute

Jhan Tiafau Hurst really want to be a millionaire because they would not be richer than anyone else. If everyone in the world had a high political position of respect and power, then not many people would want that kind of position because they would not be more respected and powerful than anyone else. Did you know that it is our pride which causes most of the problems in our life, whether it’s in our family, at work, school, or with friends and neighbors. Our hidden, tricky pride is the reason we get hurt and angry at others. It’s also the reason we will not forgive them, but instead even try to hurt them back. So is there any hope for us? Can we ever start becoming genuinely honest and humble in our hearts? hurst/PAGE 9

gamble with the things that are precious and important to me. But no matter how strong the fortress we build to protect us, suffering will always find its way in. We were born with a shadow, and our shadow is Suffering. You can never be too attractive, or too rich, or to o s mar t , su nb at h i ng on the beach of life, that a mini tsunami won’t get you and smash you like a limp seaweed. There are no guarantees. Life on earth is a mixture of sun and rain, happiness and pain. I’ve had my share of life’s toughest challenges. I’ve been confronted with impenetrable darkness that brought me down on my knees. I can honestly say, that on your knees is not a bad place. That is where God lives. “When you find yourself in a place where there is nothing left but God, you will find that God is enough.” This is where you surrender yourself to Him, to lay all at His feet, to be still, and know that He is God. Then we will discover that He is really a merciful and

loving father, and His plan for us is always good and wonderful. We will realize that He has been calling and waiting for a long time, but we were so busy running, in pursuit of dreams that are fleeting. When disappointment and disaster overtake us, know that we can not face it in our own strength alone. We shall claim the promise of Romans 8:28: “All things work together for good to those who love God and are called according to His purpose.” Our task is simple. We are to love God. From that love will grow our trust, that He will make all things right. And from that trust we will find the comfort and strength to face our challenge. Unless we run to God in our suffering, inevitably we will become bitter and in despair. But if we choose to trust God to bring about something good out of this trial, we will discover that trials are not traps to bring us down, but opportunities to lead us up. Pain forces us to mature and hunger

for something better. It pressures us to change, so that ultimately we can gain the victory, which can only be won through suffering. Don’t be impatient when you are in the midst of trials. Face it with calmness. Remember, everything in life passes, including your distress. Everything we think or say reacts on us like a boomerang. Wh e n w e s e n d o u r judgments in the form of criticism, fury or other attack thoughts, they come back to us. When we send out love, then happiness & peace come back to us.

Aeta grandmothers bring solar energy to their communities

he “Solar Lolas” are back! The “Solar Lolas” are four Aeta grandmonthers who were sent to the Barefoot College in India to be trained under its “Tanging Tanglaw: Turning IP Grandmothers into Solar Engineers” Project. Their return has generated much interest from the media and the general public. They have landed on the front pages of our national newspapers and have been featured in major news programs. “Tanging Tanglaw” is a col l ab orat ion among Diwata-Women in Resource Development, Inc (Diwata), the Philippine Mine Safety and Environment Association (PMSEA) and the Land Rover Club of the Philippines (LRCP) (collectively, the “Project Partners”), with the support of the Embassy of India in the Philippines. “Tanging Tanglaw” aims to empower indigenous people (IP) women, particularly grandmothers (i.e., mature women who are no longer the primary caregivers of their families) by teaching them how to harness solar power to light up their communities. The project involves s e n d i n g i l l i t e r at e a n d unskilled women to the Barefoot College in Tilonia, India to attend a 6-month training course on solar engineering, specifically, f abr i c at i ng , i nst a l l i ng , repairing and maintaining solar lighting equipment. The Barefoot College was founded by Sanjit “Bunker” Roy, named one of Time magazine’s most influential people in 2010. The Barefoot

College provides training in, among others, solar technology in the belief that even the uneducated poor have the right to use technologies to improve their life and skills. Based on the many years of experience of the Barefoot College, women, rather than men, are specifically chosen because, after receiving their training, the women return to their villages to influence daily life and play a major role in their development rather than migrating to other places as men or younger community members might. The Project Partners arranged the logistics and assisted the Barefoot College and the government of India select a group of four Aeta women, namely, Evelyn Clemente, Sharon Flores, Cita Diaz and Magda Salvador to undergo a six-month, livein training at the Barefoot College. Evelyn and Sharon are from Gala, Zambales, while Cita and Magda are from Bamban, Tarlac. During their six months of training at the Barefoot College with other women from different countries, the four grandmothers experienced an amazing personal transformation. They learned solar e ng ine e r ing and ot he r livelihood activities, such as making mosquito nets and sanitary napkins. Learning complex new concepts and interacting with people of different cultures built their self-confidence and fueled their desire to be agents of positive change in their villages.

Upon returning to their respective villages, each pair of solar grandmother will be responsible for solar electrifying 100 households. In the case of Bamban, Tarlac, electrification is currently non-existent and most of the households use kerosene lamps for lighting. On t he ot her hand, electricity is available in Gala, Zambales, but not all the families avail of it. They solar grandmothers will assume the responsibility for installing and maintaining the solar panels and lamps for a minimum of 5 years. Once the communities are solar-electrified, qualitative improvements in the communities’ standard of living are expected, as the members will be able to use electrical appliances and gadgets, enabling them to become more productive. The children, in particular, will be able to study at night, learn to use computers and possibly access the internet. The Barefoot College will, in due course, provide e-learning modules to the children. The Project Partners are working with the local eld e rs and communit y members in order to help them understand that the solar lighting system follows a community ownership model and that each family, regardless of how poor they are, must contribute money (i.e., what they are currently spending on kerosene or for charging their mobile phones outside the community) and time to maintaining the system.

O ut

Ignacio Bunye Mo r e u r g e n t l y, t h e Project Partners are now r ai s i ng t he amou nt of USD58,000 (approximately PhP2,600,000.00), which need not come from any s i ng l e c ont r ibutor, for each community of 100 households. This amount will cover, among others, the required number of household solar systems which consist of: 40 watt solar panel; wiring; wallmounted charge controller; waterproof battery box with battery (sealed gel battery new technology); 3 LED wall lights; 1 mobile phone charger (universal); 1 large solar portable lantern with separate panel for charging; and share in workshop tools and supplies and spare parts. The response to Tanging Tanglaw remains enthusiastic and the Project Partners hope they can successfully implement the project in Zambales and Tarlac, and send more trainees to the Barefoot College in the future.

IPIL, Zamboanga Sibugay -The Office of Civil Defense 9 (OCD-9) spearheaded the launching of the National Disaster Consciousness Month last Wednesday, July 1, at Ipil Municipal Covered Court with the support of national government agencies, academe, uniformed personnel and civil society organizations. “We all share a common goal. Let this year’s theme ‘Pamilya at Pamayanang Handa, Katuwang sa Pagunlad ng Bansa’ be our guiding principle as we prepare for disaster,” said Lloyd Pranza, Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (DRRMC) officer of Z amb oanga Sibugay Province. He said we should be prepared at all times because

disaster comes unexpectedly, and we should start with our own families. “Let us preserve LOVE among each other. Leadership, Objective, Voluntary and Effort so that we will attain progress that our country needs,” Pranza said. Board Member Eufemio Javier Jr. of the province’s second district, who represented Gov. Wilter Yap Palma said everyone should gear up for manmade and natural disaster. “I thank everyone for your attendance. May support and volunteerism be everyone’s goal as we prepare for disaster. We must be concerned about our family and our society,” he said. “Although Region 9 is not really a disaster-prone area, because of the change of the

weather condition, it is just right to brace for typhoon or disaster. Let us all be ready for typhoon or any calamity that will hit our area, so that we will know what to do,” OCD-9 OIC Regional Director and RDRRMC-9 Chairperson Emilia V. Julhajan declared. She said if one municipality is not able to cope with disaster, other municipalities and concerned individuals or groups, driven by the spirit of volunteerism can lend their helping hand, so affected communities will become resilient and start again. Julhajan said a media forum on Disaster Risk Reduction and Management is slated next week in Zamboanga City to orient them and help spread disaster awareness/preparedness in the region. (PIA9)

Surigao Sur provincial government targets 10,000 has planted to cacao By CARMELITO Q. FRANCISCO, Correspondent

D

AVAO City -- Surigao del Sur is targeting about 10,000 hectares (ha.) of cacao acreage within the next five years as the province rides a wave of private and government initiatives to develop the crop as a major commodity. Governor Johnny T. Pimentel said the provincial government is gathering the support of municipal leaders to achieve the target, citing the lead taken by Mayor Allan A. Pelenio of Marihatag town. “We need the cooperation of the municipalities to hit our goal,” Mr. Pimentel told BusinessWeek Mindanao last week in an interview in Davao City. Surigao del Sur, covering a 4,933 square kilometers ( ov e r 4 9 3 , 0 0 0 h a . ) i n eastern Mindanao, has 17 municipalities plus the cities of Bislig and Tandag, the capital. Mr. Pelenio, representing Marihatag and other municipalities, signed an agreement with multinational

food company Kennemer Foods Inc. last year for the initial development of about 1,400 ha. into cacao farms. Under the agreement, the municipal governments will identify the areas that will be planted with the crop and organize the farmers. Kennemer, in turn, will provide the farm inputs and technology under a contract farming agreement. M e a n w h i l e , Undersecretary Janet M. Lopoz, executive director of the Mindanao Development Authority (MinDA), said Sur igao del Sur’s pl an dovetails with the agency’s forthcoming cacao program. “The initiative will also allow us to reach our goal of achieving our 100,000 metric ton (production) target,” she told BusinessWeek Mindanao, but declined to give further details pending the launch of the program. Mindanao, according to Ms. Lopoz, currently has only 7,413 ha. of cacao farms, and MinDA is targeting to

expand that to 200,000 ha by the end of 2016. Cacao is a priority crop under MinDA’s inclusive growth program, which is being undertaken in partnership with the Philippine Business for Social Progress (PBSP). Under the growth program, MinDA, in coordination with other government agencies and local government units, will help provide investors with a better business climate through support policies and infrastructure. PBSP, on the other hand, will encourage its member companies to consider areas in Mindanao for their ventures. Other areas in Mindanao that have cacao development programs are Davao Oriental where it is being intercropped with coconuts, Davao City where Kennemer signed a deal with Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries last year, and the provinces of Davao del Norte, Davao del Sur, Compostela Valley, Agusan del Sur, among others.

DAR, partners call for extension in issuance of notice of coverage RECO GNIZING to the significant gains generated by the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program (CARP), Department of Agrarian Reform 10 Regional Director Faisar A. Mambuay led the call of support for the extension of issuance of Notice of Coverage. He drummed up the call during the Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries’ (ARB) Summit held in the City on June 29 as part of the 27th CARP Anniversary celebration, highlighted with the ceremonial signing of the “pledge of support” by the ARBs, agrarian reform beneficiaries’ organizations, people’s organizations and other stakeholder. “Nais kolang pong bigyan halaga na ang comprehensive

agrarian reform program (CARP) ay hindi perpektong programa o kaya ay ipinatutupad ng mga perpektong tao. Alam nating lahat na may pagkukulang din gayon pa man meron tayong nagawa at may kaukulang tagumpay. Sa wika pa ni Archbishop Tony Ledesma, nagka “underperform” ang CARP. Kaya dapat palawakin pa ito upang tapusin ang dapat tapusin,” Mambuay said. As of March 31, 2014, a total of 307,382 hectares of land out of the allotted 341,989 hectares were already distributed to 175,186 ARBs in Northern Mindanao and this constitutes to 90 percent of their total target since the program was established. “Maraming pang dapat

nating pag-uukulan ng pansin sa Programang Agraryo pero sa ngayon, ang extension ng pagpalaganap ng mga Notices of Coverage sa lahat pang lupain nasuklop ng CARP ang siyang karapatang mauna,” he added. (JCV/PIA 10)

DSWD... from page 2

t h e Gr i e v an c e R e d re s s System (GRS) of the program is continually capturing and processing complaints related to the program. Since the implementation of the program in 2010, GRS has delisted 2,438 beneficiaries due to inclusion errors; found out and delisted 13,210 because the household has no eligible children aged 0-18 years old; and delisted 717 grantees found to have regular income. GRS also has cleaned its list from double entry or duplication, fraud, missing, waive d, not reg istere d, among others. For her part, Kenneth Haze Sanchez, Regional Program Coordinator of Pantawid Pamilya in Northern Mindanao, explained that one way of keeping the database from leakage is through immediate filing of updates by encoding those updates in the system. As of this year, Sanchez disclosed that GRS has received, processed, and re s olve d on ly m i n i m a l complaints of inclusion error which are coming from the grantees under Sets 6 and 7 or grantees included in the program for the last two years. She also added that the Department conducts regular spot checks nationwide and consu lt at ions wit h different partner-agencies and organizations to help improve the implementation of the program. Earlier, DSWD Secretary Corazon Juliano-Soliman has clarified reports citing a paper by the Asian Development Bank (ADB), which stated “improvements are needed in the program’s targeting system to reduce an estimated leakage rate

of 30%”. ADB through its Philippines Countr y D i re c tor R i chard B olt , however, has already issued a clarification saying that the paper they published referred to studies from 2013 and 2011, which in turn used data from 2009. “It is unfortunate that outdated data was used in media reports claiming that 19 billion pesos of program funds did not go to intended beneficiaries. That figure is based on a calculation drawn from outdated 2009 data—at a time when the budget for the program was much smaller—rather than the most recent 2014 budget. Initial targeting errors have been substantially reduced by the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), with advice from ADB and other partners. It is important to note that these targeting errors did not lead to misappropriation or misuse of funds. “Since 2010, ADB has worked closely with DSWD to ensure funding goes to intende d b enef i ci ar i es. ADB technical assistance has supported DSWD in implementing measures— such as a grievance redress mechanism, extra training for staff, and spot checks in the field—to improve targeting models so they exclude non-eligible families. “A s p a r t o f A D B ’s continuing efforts to improve the program’s effectiveness, a new round of poverty assessment processes is ongoing to update the status of beneficiary households and ensure funds are properly directed,” said Bolt in his statement which is also posted in ADB’s websitewww.adb.org. Solamillo also enjoined the public to report, through the GRS, any complaint or quest ions ab out t he

Yes, that’s the great news! God the Son humiliated Himself by becoming a human being to die and pay the penalty for our sinful pride which separates us from God. But He also will set us free from the power of our sinful pride. Jesus Christ will forgive you right now-if you ask Him. Then He will also give you His power and love, so you can start changing to become the truly humble, honest, and successful person He created you to be. Just Think a Minute.

B OI Resource Based Ser vice Director Nestor Arcansalin said that this only indicates that region 10 has more incentives since it also has more investments. Major investments in the region include the coal-fired power plants by GNPower Kauswagan in Lanao del Norte, FDC Misamis Power at the Phividec Industrial Estate, Minergy Coal Corporation in Balingasag, Misamis Oriental; also hydropower plants such as Hedcor Bukidnon, First Gen Mindanao and Mindanao Energy Systems and Solar power plant by Asian Greenergy. Also in the offing are massive investments in real estate, mostly in Cagayan de Oro City, such as the mass housing by Filinvest Land Inc. and Limketkai Hotel and Resort. Animal feeds plant by CAS5 Corporation also contribute to the major proj e c t s i n t he re g i on identified by BOI. A rc ans a l i n s ai d t he g o v e r n m e nt i d e nt i f i e s three priority sectors of the Investment Priorities Plan 2014 to 2016 which includes manufacturing, agribusiness and services. The manufacturing sector is in resurgence with preferred activities such as in motor vehicles parts and components, shipbuilding and even aerospace parts and components. Arcansalin says that the market for these products is huge. Even basic iron and steel products, steel grinding balls, long steel products and tool and die such as molds for die casting, among others. Meanwhile, agribusiness shows high employment generator with preferred activities in commercial

pro duc t ion, pro cessing and animal and aqua feeds, among others. The services sector on the other hand shows sustained growth w it h t h e I T- B P M s i z e of $18.1B in 2014 in the country. BOI lists preferred activities for services sector such as economic low cost housing, hospitals and other infrastructure. Arcansalin also mentioned that one of the factors considered by investors is predictability of policy of government. He cited that in Mindanao, the Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL) if passed, should resolve to good governance to create peace and order thus would create inclusive growth. The advantage of foreign investors in the country, according to Arcansalin is they bring capital and technolog y. Aside from that, they also help us access foreign markets, he said. The 2014 IPP process include research, peer review of IPP 2014 Framework to a core group of economists and multi-sectoral consultations.

of Representatives ad hoc committee on the BBL, which he chaired, precisely so that it will pass constitutional review. He stressed that the BLBAR does not violate any provisions in the Constitution and that it is the country’s best chance for peace in Mindanao. “Our committee has made sure that the BBL, now called Basic Law for the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region is constitutional. We have made amendments and/ or deletions to ensure that it is constitutional and consistent with the aspirations of the Bangsamoro,” he said. Gutierrez also scored some members of Congress for voting against the BBL not because they questioned its substance but because they insisted on equating it with the January 24 Mamasapano incident and other issues like

the sincerity of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF). “If you listen to the explanations of some members of Congress who voted against the BBL, they were not talking about the substance of the law at all. They were talking about Mamasapano, they were insisting on tying the passage of BBL into some kind of a resolution of the Mamasapano issue like return of firearms, filing of cases by the Department of Justice, or ambiguous standards like the MILF showing sincerity as the government’s peace partner,” he lamented. Lawyer Benedicto Bacani, executive director of the Institute for Autonomy and G overnance (IAG) and former dean of Notre Dame University’s College of Law, lamented that the deliberations on HB 5811

focused on the draft law’s legality and constitutionality instead of on the social justice it will grant the Bangsamoro peoples.

Bacani urged congressmen to instead focus on what the proposed law is all about — giving justice to the Bangsamoro people.

BBL... from page 1

Philippines (UP) said that all the alleged constitutionallyquestionable provisions in the BLBAR are already enshrined in RA 9054 or the Expanded Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) Law. “The BBL discussions have to go back to RA 9054 and the paranoia to its constitutionality makes us revisit the ARMM law. What is written on the BBL is a reiteration of what is in the ARMM with additional prov is i ons t hat e nsu re genuine autonomy,” he said. Rodriguez said the BBL, renamed the BLBAR have been refined by the House

Centrio, OPS spearhead 1st ever Mindanao Photo Summit By Shaun Alejandrae Yap Uy

T

he Cagayan de Oro photography club, Oro Photographic Society (OPS), lights up the city with the first ever Mindanao Photo Summit this month from July 31 to August 2. Photo enthusiasts, hobbyists, and professionals in Mindanao and other parts of the country will converge at the Centrio Ayala Mall to participate in basic and advance photography seminars during the event facilitated by renowned photographers in various fields. “The participants should expect to learn a lot from the summit. The speakers themselves are masters of their trade and who’s passionate enough to share us their techniques in photography. Registrants should expect to broaden their knowledge of the different fields in photography. And soak their minds with each different technique, hoping that with these shared techniques they can come up with their own in the near future”, OPS Past President Architect Ranke Lim enthused in an interview. Ranke Lim vice chairs the 1st Mindanao Photo Summit, Ms Nathalie Agopra is the chairperson. Master travel and underwater photographer Annaliza Barrera will discuss “Basic Photography,” while Canon ambassador Ibarra Deri will talk about “Portrait Photography” and “Product

Photography”. Another Canon ambassador, Edwin Martinez, will lecture on “Landscape Photography,” to be followed by Francisco Mark Floro, also a Canon ambassador. All lectures will have workshop or hands-on sessions. All five lectures can be had for only P2,500 (standard rate), P1,500 (early bird rate, good until June 30), or P1,000 (student rate, with current ID). The official registration form and other details are available at our Facebook website “1st Mindanao Photo Summit”. Themed “Island Interlinks,” the Summit will also showcase photographic equipment, gears, accessories, and other related products will be on exhibit. OPS President Engineer Lauriel Dela Cruz says “the Mindanao Photo Summit is about gathering of photographers and sellers of photo accessories. There will be seminars and we are hoping to bring sellers of photo accessories here and sell their products at a cheaper price.” Parallel to the Mindanao Photo Summit is the 2nd “OPS Kagay-an Photography Contest” to spice up the fiesta celebration from August 1 to August 31. “The photo contest started last year and the response from the contestants were enough to convince us to do it again this year.

Photography is a way to promote our city fiesta activities and the city itself. Many still don’t know the other activities of our city fiesta. The photo contest hopefully will change that. Most city fiestas have their own photo contests to enhance their tourism growth. Hope we can sustain this yearly” adds Dela Cruz. Ranke Lim also said that during the seminars - video recording (in anyway) is prohibited, “I would suggest that participants should take down notes. We are just hoping that participants open their minds for these new techniques, don’t hesitate to ask questions after each seminar.” “Just a note, there are different techniques in fields of photography; you should be akin to their differences. All these knowledge will be put to test during the fiesta competition. Show them how much you’ve learned and leveled up. Go Mindanao!” Lim enthused. The Oro Photographic Society has partners with Centrio Ayala Mall, the Philippine Center for Creative Imaging (PCCI), Department of Tourism-Northern Mindanao, Bombo Radyo, Magnum Radio, Mindanao Daily News, BusinessWeek Mindanao, and ABS-CBN Northern Mindanao to bring this event to the city.
