In partnership with The Missional Business Center (MBC) CBM has begun the process of developing new training staff and launching new training events in Payatas (poor section of Quezon City, Metro Manila). In it’s entirety, this training will involve over 90 people who will receive business training, which includes help with developing their business plan.
This project is a great example of inter-agency cooperation. This project also indirectly involves a Philippine organization known as CCT. The Center for Community Transformation (CCT) is a micro lending group that is funded by Filipino business people and focuses on providing the poor with access to funds for new micro small business startups. CCT has asked MBC to train their members for their expanding work throughout the Philippines. By working with MBC on this project, CBM is assisting in the development of trainers which will have a direct impact in the lives of several hundred people over the next 12-18 months.
