Peace and Equity Foundation (PEF) is one of SEDPI’s largest clients. Through PEF’s support SEDPI implemented a Training and Mentoring Assistance to five organizations in Southern Luzon – Sandigan ng Magsasaka, Malayang Lapian ng Kababihan, Magsaka-CA, and Joint Enterprise Development for the Indigent. Anak Dagat Multipurpose Cooperative (ADMPC), a PEF Luzon Regional Office-supported cooperative, has demonstrated improvement in its Portfolio at Risk Ratio from 74% to 17%. For 2005, ADMPC was able to post modest financial performance compared to industry standards.

A subsector research to identify the appropriate interventions needed to support coastal-based microenterprise was also implemented in Iloilo, Bohol, and Eastern Samar. Impact assessment to four microfinance institutions are conducted – Barangka Credit Cooperative, Negros Women for Tomorrow Foundation, Tulay sa Kaunlaran, Inc., and Katotohanan, Pagkakaisa at Serbisyo, Inc.

Mr. Rapisura and Mr. Salonga are development associates of PEF. As such, they regularly conduct appraisals of microfinance and microenterprise proposals. Mr. Rapisura was part of a team that crafted proposals for the United Nations Development Program and Cordaid.
