Featuring Tambulilid's Coordinator

Here is Diosita Aquino, coordinator of the Tambulilid Community Livelihood Center, TCFOC. She is 55 years old, a mother of 7 children and a grandmother of 8.

A resourceful, amiable, smiling and skilled grandma, she is able to provide jobs to 15 of the members of the Tambulilid CLC. Thinking that this is not enough, she wants to train more women to learn how to sew.

She is not deterred of Jean's bitchiness, lol.

Look at her smiling self with her youngest daughter and one of her grandchildren.

Forced Savings Mobilization

In forcing them to save for their own families, the women found out that most of them do not have the necessary papers to be able to get hold of a simple Identification Card. Banks ask for IDs before one can open an account. It was a good thing because now they're able to get complete papers and identification cards.

So, some of the women have already opened bank accounts.
