Nomination of MF NGO Representatives to the Microfinance NGO Regulatory Council

Dear MCPI Members,

Rule 3, Section 1.b. of the Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR) of Republic Act No. 10693, otherwise known as the Microfinance NGOs Act, provides that three (3) representatives from the Microfinance NGO Sector shall be chosen by at least a majority of the permanent members of the Council from among the nominees of organizations, associations, and alliances of Microfinance NGOs duly registered with the SEC.

Incumbent representatives are: Fr. Jose Victor Lobrigo – Luzon; Mr. Angel de Leon Jr. – Visayas; and Atty. Ibarra Malonzo – Mindanao. Their terms will expire on 27 January 2020, but they can be reappointed.

As a network composed primarily of microfinance NGOs, MCPI is entitled to submit a list of nominees for the allotted positions. In view of this, we would like to solicit names for potential members to serve on the MNRC as microfinance NGO sector representative, who will serve a three-year term and may be reappointed. Your organization shall submit the name of one nominee only, including the nomination form, and specify which island group he/she will be representing (i.e., Luzon, Visayas, or Mindanao). The representatives to be chosen shall have the following minimum qualifications:

  2. With at least five (5) years experience as a Trustee, President or Officer of a Microfinance NGO; and a recognized and well-respected leader and/or practitioner in the Philippine microfinance sector;
  3. No record of final conviction for an offense involving theft, fraud, falsification, forgery, perjury or any administrative offense or crime involving moral turpitude; and
