Pag-IBIG Southern Mindanao Group made it again to PASADA …

September 30, 2008

And this time Pag-IBIG Davao Branch Office was rated top agency for 2008 Public Assistance Service Delivery Audit.

Civil Service Commission (CSC) Chair Ricardo Saludo conferred the award to the Home Development Mutual Fund (HDMF) during the culminating activity of the Civil Service Month celebration through Davao Branch manager Manolito O. Olegario at the SM City Event Center on Tuesday, September 30, 2008.

Together with Pag-IBIG Fud with a rating of 4.17 percent for PASADA  is the Philippine National Police Davao City Office getting a rating of 4  percent. The award for the PNP was received by Davao City Police Director Sr. Supt. Ramon Apolinario.

It may be recalled that Pag-IBIG Fund Cotabato Branch Office headed by Manager Noli A. Armada was awarded the CSC Seal of Frontline Service Excellence in 2007 and was given the highest award of excellence, an additional recognition as they became part of the nationwide publicity for best practices in the bureaucracy.

Both the Cotabato and Davao Branch Offices belong to the Southern Mindanao Group under the supervision of Vice President Jose W. Banzon, Jr.

The CSC rates agency on delivery of frontline services through a team of volunteers where it transacts business with agencies not known to the agency being rated.

The strategy is simple as a pool of Public Service Monitors checks and tests out public services.

The government office delivery of services is tested by the PASADA where the office was assessed in terms of providing service, structures, systems and procedures and the physical condition.

The Fund’s value of customer care as well as meeting the expectations of the transacting public for prompt, courteous, responsive, facilitative and pleasant service were also factors considered in the award.

The CSC puts premium in promoting morale, efficiency, integrity, responsiveness and courtesy in government service.

The PASADA is a proactive mechanism installed to address the problems brought by inefficiency at the government’s first line of contact with the citizenry.

It also provides mechanism through which the performance of government frontline services can be systematically checked and evaluated.

Meanwhile the Dangal ng Bayan Award semi-finalists  were also recognized during the Awarding Activity with CSC Chair Saludo namely Naida G. Lasangre, Instructor II of Lupon School of Fisheries of Davao Oriental and F/Supt. Wilberto Rico Neil Kwan Tiu.

With the 108th celebration of  Civil Service, a one stop shop for government frontline agencies was set up from September 29 to 30, 2008 at the SM City Event Center where 22 agencies such as Pag-IBIG , Department of Foreign Affairs, National Statistics Office, Department of Agriculture, TESDA, DCWD, Davao City Business Bureau, Department of Science and Technoly and others showcased their different services for the public to access.

CSC chairperson Karina Constantino-David issued the award to the Pag-IBIG Fund Cotabato Branch for exemplars in the delivery of frontline services as tested by the Public Service Delivery Audit/Assistance (PASADA) Volunteers.

The Fund was assessed in terms of providing service, structures, systems and procedures and the physical condition.

The value of customer care of the Fund as well as meeting the expectations of the transacting public for prompt, courteous, responsive, facilitative and pleasant service were also factors considered in the award.

Under the PASADA, the CSC places premium in promoting morale, efficiency, integrity, responsiveness and courtesy in government service.

The PASADA is a proactive mechanism installed to address the problems wrought by inefficiency at the government’s first line of contact with the citizenry.

PASADA provides a mechanism through which the performance of government frontline services can be systematically checked and evaluated.

More economic activities coming to the island …. good for business !

September 25, 2008

When business is alive more people are employed and more housing units needed as the real property industry could also spur economic activities.

Korean-Filipino mining partnership starts exploration in Sultan Kudarat

A Korean investor with local partners in Sultan Kudarat started mining exploration in barangay Kinayao, Bagumbayan town within the 4,500 hectares with approved mineral production sharing agreement (MSPA) issued to FADICASU.

The partnership was registered under FMC & GRCO Fadicasu Mining Corp & General Resources Co. Ltd.

In an interview with the Corporation’s operation manager, Rudolf Joseph C. Lopez, he said Fadicasu Mining Corp is the Filipino partner while General Resources Co., Ltd. is the Korean investor.

Fadicasu represents the name of the shareholders that all reside in Bagumbayan namely Faducan, Dida, Caspe and Subere.

Although the MSPA was approved in 1998, the exploration only started May 2008 and as of this writing are already into its 600 meters depth drilling of 10 holes.

Mineral deposits within the Daguma Range are copper and gold but the resource is more of copper with the gold deposits of 22 K.

He said they still need to go down to 2,000 meters of drilling to determine the volume of the reserves and they expect to hit their target by December this year with 100 holes.

With an initial investments of over P100 million, the company plan to put up processing plant in the area only after determining the volume because what they will ship to Korea are copper concentrate.

Within the Damuga Range he said are about 11 MPSA holders and that for the whole of Sultan Kuradat there are some 50 of them including mineral tenements which were issued same agreement.

Like in any other mining explorations he admitted that there are issues raised and in their case these are siltation of the Allah River, the threat to landslide and other related issues.

Lopez said prior to their entry in the area siltation is already present and the threat to landslide is outside of the approved MPSA.

However. he said they are closely cooperating with the local government unit because they have the responsibility to play in relation to their investment in the area.

Frank typhoon victims got aid from Pag-IBIG Fund
Assessing the devastation caused by typhoon “Frank”, Vice President and Pag-IBIG Fund Board Chairman Noli “Kabayan” De Castro directed the Fund to come to the aid of the victims by expediting the processing of applications for calamity loans.  Immediately, Pag-IBIG, through its Chief Executive Officer Romero F. S. Quimbo, approved the allocation of P1.5 billion for the said loans to help Fund members affected by typhoon “Frank”, which triggered disastrous floods particularly in the Visayas Region.

The loan is open to any active Pag-IBIG member who has made at least 24 monthly contributions who are residing in areas declared under the state of calamity by either the local government unit or by the Office of the President.  Members with outstanding Multi-Purpose Loans (MPL) may still borrow under the program.  To optimize assistance, a qualified member can borrow as much as 80 percent of his Pag-IBIG savings, comprising his personal contributions, the employer counterpart savings, as well as the dividends earned.
The said loan will be released to the member and will be paid over a period of 24 months. As an additional relief, a borrower is given a five-month grace period before he starts paying the loan.

CEO Quimbo advised all affected members to file their applications with the Pag-IBIG branch where their contributions are remitted within 90 days from the occurrence of the calamity.  VP De Castro has instructed the Pag-IBIG Fund to process the loans of affected members within one day from its filing, if possible.
The Pag-IBIG Fund Calamity Loan Program is an on-going scheme made available to Fund members to assist them in rebuilding their lives after a calamity.  In 2007, the Fund has released nearly P2 billion in calamity loans which benefited 120,793 members across the country.  For inquiries, members may call the Pag-IBIG hotline at 724.4244.

Pag-IBIG sustains assistance to delinquent borrowers

June 21, 2008

Pag-IBIG Fund continues to implement the Housing Loan Restructuring and Penalty Condonation Program to enable member-borrower to settle their delinquent accounts.

Pag-IBIG Fund chair of the board, Housing Czar and Vice President Noli De Castro instructed the Fund to sustain such program for those affected borrowers.

De Castro meanwhile announced that the Board has approved the grant of P6.18 billion in dividends to nearly 6.5 million Pag-IBIG members nationwide.

In 2006, dividend comprises 80 percent or the largest ever percentage cut from the Fund’s net income, which represents a dividend rate of 4.81 percent. The Pag-IBIG Fund Charter provides that it should distribute at least 70 percent of its annual net income as dividends to its members.

The steady increase in annual dividends signifies the Pag-IBIG Fund’s continuous growth and stable financial standing.

Pag-IBIG Fund president and CEO Atty Romero Quimbo on the other hand said that a higher income for the Fund invariably leads to higher dividends and better services for our members.


Pag-IBIG Davao rakes about P1 billion under end-user housing projects

May 26, 2008

Pag-IBIG Fund Davao branch raked in about a billion pesos under its end-user financing for housing projects as of November 2007 making the Southern Mindanao Group achieved 116 percent performance for its housing services.  Most of the homebuyers from the other parts of Mindanao chose Davao City to locate their residence or second home.

The Southern Mindanao group surpassed their target by hitting 116 percent or about P1.454 billion which were spent to fund some 3,797 units as against the 2007 target of only P1.258 billion.

Davao City (to include Davao del Sur area) was able to deliver some 2,079 units valued at P957,175,000; General Santos City with 795 units with cost at P265,317,000; Tagum (including Davao Oriental and Compostela Valley Provinces) had 715 units with P165,598, 000 funding and Cotabato (to include Maguindanao, North Cotabato, Sultan Kudarat and Cotabato City) had 208 with P66,664, 000.

Pag-IBIG Fund vice presdient for Southern Mindanao operations Jose W. Banzon, Jr. attributed the increase in housing availment to their new scheme where interest rates were brought down making housing units affordable to homebuyers.

He said they observed that homebuyers in Davao City are mostly families sending their children in colleges and universities.

“This is the wisest decision they make because it is more advantageous nowadays to buy a house than rent one where the amortization is much lower than renting a house,” he said.

For a P300,000 house and lot package one would only get an interest rate of 6 percent or an amortization of about P1,800. Before the same package was charged 9 percent interest rate and the monthly amortization of P2,700.

 


Good Payor Incentive Program

May 26, 2008

VP de Castro urges regular payments of housing loan amortizations

May 15, 2008

Vice President and Housing czar Noli de Castro urged urban poor homeowners to also pay reguarly their home loan amortization as he exhorts everyone not to forget their obligation.

The Vice President in a Housing Summit May 9, 2008 at the Philippine Women’s College, Matina, Davao City met with the homeowners organizations of Davao City where he also awarded the Certificate of Title to beneficiaries of housing projects of unused government lands converted into sites for socialized housing.

The summit was also attended by Pag-IBIG Officers led by Deputy Chief Executive Officer and Executive Vise President Jaime A. Fabiana and SM Vice President Jose W. Banzon, Jr. Also present were Pag-IBIG branch managers Manolito Olegario of Davao, Rodrigo Suemith of General Santos and Elizabeth Tinagan of Tagum.


De Castro was elated saying that the Summit was a good opportunity where the urban poor and the stakeholders discussed on their housing concerns.

“Ang Davao City naman di mahilig ng libre at huwag tayong mag short cut sa proseso kasi maraming sabit pag magshort cut tayo,” he said.

With regards to their concern on housing, the Vice President encouraged homeowners to send their issues and concerns to his office as he is willing to answer them provided they must indicate their addresses so they would know where to send the feedback.

De Castro also announced that because of so many complaints they had shortened the processing of requirements among shelter agencies.

House Speaker Prospero C. Nograles in a public hearing in Davao City on May 8 said homeowners must take the opportunity once the consolidation of House Bill Nos. 89, 411 and 1932 be firmed up.

The House of Representatives Committee on Housing is consolidating all the bills with regards government housing program to gather all the inputs of different sectors raised during public hearings.

House Bill No. 89 is an “Act to establish a socialized and low cost housing restructuring program, providng the mechanism therefore, and for other purposes,” authored by Rep. Rozzano Rufino B. Biazon, House Bill No. 411 is authored by Rep. Eduardo C. Zialzita re “An act instituting a socialized and low cost housing loan restructuring program, providing the mechanism therefore, and for other purposes”, and House Bill No. 1932 is entitled “An act instituting a socialized and low cost housing loan restructuring program, providing mechamism therefore, and for other purposes”, authored by Speaker Prospero C. Nograles.

Nograles said the only way to stop foreclosure is the restructuring program and they are finding ways to fill the gap even as he said that they had lowered the interest rate and is now pegged at six percent.

Restructuring is a temporary relief of homeowners whose account has been delinquent and facing foreclosure and once the law this will be the chance for those facing foreclosure pero hindi naman pwedeng hindi tayo magbayad, Nograles pointed out.

“Once the homebuyer avails of restructuring they must also pay their obligation because these shelter agencies also have operating expenditures,” he said.

And definitely when we borrow we must also pay,” the House Speaker stressed.


Quotes from VP Banzon

May 15, 2008

“The Fund family must continue extending their services with clients satisfaction. Let us maintain quality service and by serving the clients with smile as well as sustain an accommodating attitude to all clients”.

“We should listen to feedback because this is a tool that will help us improve our services”.

“We should not discard the past when Pag-IBIG Fund was just starting. Its humble beginnings and sacrifices made the Fund what it is today.This should be a guide as we continue to make Pag-IBIG Fund a model of service”.


News Report

May 15, 2008

Pag-IBIG loan availment rises to 80% of savings.

The Pag-IBIG Fund has increased the computation of loan availment of the multi purpose loan (MPL) from the member’s accumulated savings to 80 percent.

Pag-IBIG Fund Mindanao vice president Jose W. Banzon, Jr. told the Davao media that this is one innovation that the Fund has given to members as an incentive for those with contributions that had reached five years and above.

“What is good with the new scheme is that the loan can be renewed in six months unlike the previous where a borrower has to wait for the maturity period of 12 months before the loan can be renewed,” he said.

MPL is among the saleable program that the members avail of because it can be accessed easily with processing for renewal only in three days while first timer can have it within 24 hours.

In Mindanao, he said, the Fund was able to loan out in 2005 some P4 billion this year and 35 percent of the 772,000 Pag-IBIG Fund members spread out all over the island availed of the loan window.

MPL is a short-term loan where proceeds could be used by the borrower for purposes either as capital for income generating project, educational purposes or for health concerns and others.

No survey as yet has been conducted to where the proceeds of MPL were applied by the borrowers but through word of mouth some Pag-IBIG Fund borrowers of the short-term loan used the proceeds for livelihood purposes.
