Unlad Kabayan Migrant Services Foundation, Inc.

Migrant Services & Social Entrepreneurship


Through our Savings and Investment Mobilization (SIM) program we travel to destination countries in Asia and Europe to meet with groups of OFWs, to promote the benefits of saving and investing. We organize migrant workers into Savings and Investment Groups (SIG), usually by the region in the Philippines they lived in, or by factory groups. They pool a proportion of their savings, and then choose to save their money through a bank, invest in successful enterprises we have helped set up in the Philippines, or to start their own enterprise. We harness migrant workers' resources to bear on local economy development.

We provide training in destination countries using the MSAI-CDR methodology. Migrants attend free seminars on topics including business skills and the advantages of saving and investment.
