Cory Aquino

Her Advocacies



PinoyMe (Filipino Micro-Enterprise) is a private sector, multi-stakeholder social consortium that aims to contribute to reducing poverty in the country by providing 5 million poor people with financial and non-financial services and mobilizing P5 billion in new capital for microfinance in 5 years. It will achieve these goals through capacity building, resource mobilization, business development services, and knowledge management.

Principles of Cooperation

  • Inclusiveness
    The program will endeavor to involve and work with all groups and individuals who are willing to accept the goals, principles and strategies of PinoyMe.
  • Subsidiarity
    PinoyMe upholds the autonomy and initiative of all who will participate in its program and will at all times ensure that it will avoid duplicating, co-opting or contradicting the efforts of those who participate in it.
  • Commitment to the Goal
    All who will participate in the PinoyMe shall commit to achieving its goals.
  • Market-based Interventions
    In order to ensure the sustainability of its efforts, the program will minimize subsidies and will at all times seek to create a dynamic market for its services beyond the life of the project.
