SHFC HOLDS “DAGAN PARA BALAY” FUN RUN IN ZAMBOANGA
DAGAN PARA BALAY
The Social Housing Finance Corporation (SHFC) Region 9 North Operation, in partnership with the Zamboanga del Norte Homeowners Association Federation, organized a fun run with the theme “Dagan para Balay” in Dipolog City on January 26.
More than 500 partner-homeowners, including their children, participated in the activity—a first of its kind for SHFC. The participants were beneficiaries of the Community Mortgage Program (CMP), the flagship program of the SHFC, the government agency assisting homeless Filipinos with funding for low-interest, long-term socialized housing loans.
The fun run was aimed at strengthening the sense of community among the members and rallying them around the idea that every individual has a right to adequate housing. The Community Mortgage Program helps uphold that right through affordable and holistic housing solutions.
In his inspirational message, Executive Vice President Atty. Junefe Payot encouraged those who have not yet completed their loan applications to keep pursuing their dreams of owning a house.
“Whatever your pace, as long as you do not stop, you will eventually reach the finish line like you just did this morning,” he said.
Atty. Payot also congratulated the participants for their strong commitment to their future and those of their children as shown by their readiness to wake up at four in the morning to join the fun run.
