The Social Housing Finance Corporation (SHFC) and local government of Lambayong in Sultan Kudarat signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on September 30 for the implementation of socialized housing initiatives under the Community Mortgage Program (CMP) in the municipality. This will allow more than 8,600 families to borrow funds from the agency for land acquisition and site development.
The MoU was signed by SHFC President Atty. Arnolfo Ricardo Cabling and Mayor Ferdinand Agduma in a virtual ceremony facilitated by the Partner Relations Division.
