Social Housing Finance Corporation joined relevant agencies and institutions in the housing sector at the 5th Subdivision and Housing Developers Association Inc. (SHDA) Housing Expo held at Midtown Atrium, Robinsons Place Manila in Ermita on July 18-22. Bringing together exhibitors from various Key Shelter Agencies (KSAs), real estate developers, banks and financing institutions, and building material suppliers, the annual event sought to promote a wide range of products and services addressing the housing needs of the Filipinos.
Through its participation in the expo, SHFC showcased social housing schemes that it offers such as the Community Mortgage Program, Abot Kaya Pabahay Fund, and High Density Housing Program by distributing primers and flyers to visitors. Also displayed at the booth were two model houses representing the actual designs built by communities in Roxas who were affected by Typhoon Yolanda in 2013. What made these houses notable was that these dwellings were constructed by local housewives, embodying self-help approach and women empowerment.
