The ARDCI NGO Group, Incorporated envisions itself to be a forerunner in grassroots-led delivery of services for the empowerment of the poor in the areas where they operate. Its mission is to be a group of sustainable development institutions harnessing the strengths of their stakeholders for the empowerment of the poor in Bicol and beyond.
ARDCI NGO Group, Incorporated is an offshoot of the Catanduanes Agricultural Support Programme (CatAg), a medium-scale development project which was conceptualized in 1995. With the success of the project, the Agricultural and Rural Development for Catanduanes Inc. (ARDCI) was organized in 1998 as an NGO to be the potential legal recipient of CatAg. In 2010, ARDCI NGO Group, Incorporated achieved its new shift to its current organizational structure. Its microfinance efforts are based in Virac, Catanduanes, currently supported by 28 branches covering the Bicol mainland and a part of Quezon province.
