In partnership with the main private sector counterpart, the Rural Bankers Association of the Philippines (RBAP), USAID/P has been supporting the GPH efforts to promote inclusive growth through the development of microfinance services under the MABS Program. Government oversight is provided by the Mindanao Development Authority (MinDA). USAID Philippines microfinance activities have focused on increasing microenterprise access to financial services provided by the formal financial sector particularly the rural banks. Unlike most traditional microfinance programs at the time, the MABS Program was design to
primarily be a technical assistance and training activity. No loan funds or guarantees are provided under the Program.
