  5. This post is very helpful especially to those who are really in need of the loan. Those who have lost almost everything.

    The Philippines is still in need of more donations for the victims of the 2 recent typhoons which hit the country the past 2 weekends.

    An American Entrepreneur already offered help by giving away $50 each to chosen people in the Philippines who are personally extending help to their own relatives, family members, friends, neighbors, and even strangers who are greatly affected by the strong storms. He even created a site that gave way for soliciting help around the globe. He has started the movement. Let us offer help in any way we can.

    No amount is too little when it comes from the heart.

  6. Hi Glorien, those who are resident of NCR and Region 4-A can apply for the loan. All residents of the 17 cities in Metro Manila, that includes, Pateros, Malabon, Caloocan, Valenzuela, Makati, Quezon City, Pasig, Pasay, Mandaluyong, San Juan, Malabon, Valenzuela, Taguig, Paranaque, Navotas, Manila and provinces like Laguna, Bulacan, Rizal, Quezon, Cavite, Pampangga.

    The difference of a calamity loan is the grace period to pay is longer and the interest if I’m not mistaken is waved for a certain period. you can call the agency you are a member of to clarify this.
