T
he Jaime V. Ongpin Foundation, Ìnc. was established in 17 December
1980 as a corporate social arm of the Benguet Corporation. Originally
called the Benguet Corp Foundation, its creation was inspired by the
late Jaime V. Ongpin, the company's frst Filipino president, who envisioned
the development of self-reliant communities.
Ìt started its activities by operating and implementing development projects
in areas near the operations of the corporation. By late 1980s it started
to operate in other areas needing development assistance. Ìn 1997, the
Foundation became fnancially independent from Benguet Corporation.
JVOFÌ is duly registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission and
the Bureau of Ìnternal Revenue. As a non-stock, non-proft organization,
the Foundation works in partnership with local and foreign donors, business,
government agencies, other NGOs and people's organizations in pursuing
development programs within its target communities.
The Foundation adopts a Strategic Area Management Approach with a
well-defned geographic focus. The Foundation works in close partnership
with its target communities, government, business and other development
organizations. Currently, the Foundation's implementing the following core
programs in Northern Luzon:
1. Enterprise Development
Promote the enhancement of income generating or livelihood projects
through microfnance, technical assistance and institutional development
2. Ecological Enhancement
Promote the conservation, protection and rational management and
utilization of critical ecological resources.
3. Resource Management
Make available the required fnancial resources for the Foundation
to pursue its mandate. This is achieve through fund sourcing, training,
consultancy and asset management
4. Ìnternal Capacity Building
Provide adequate support for improving staff competencies, design
appropriate management systems and making available the required
logistics.

urmounting challenges ÷ that aptly summarizes the past year for us at Jaime V. Ongpin Foundation,
Ìnc. Far from business as usual, the challenges that we confronted in the course of our work propelled
us to look at better ways of meeting our mandate.
Under Ecological Enhancement, our entry into organic farming in 2008 revealed the potentials for vastly improving the income of vegetable farmers,
reducing their vulnerability to uncertain market prices, and for reversing the trend of environmental degradation in the province. Thus in 2009, we continued
to make available a Green Financing fund with the support of the Philippines-Australia Community Assistance Program (PACAP) and the Foundation for a
Sustainable Society, Ìnc. (FSSÌ). Serving a total of 83 members of the LaTop Multipurpose Cooperative, farmers were able to expand their organic farm area
from an average of 1,300 sqm/farmer to 1,607 sqm.
Sustaining the interest of organic farmers and encouraging the conversion of conventional farmers was a challenge that had to be responded to by more than
just training and credit. The solution lay in stirring up demand for organic produce. Ìn 2009, the Foundation facilitated negotiations with SM City Baguio for
the cooperative to supply the supermarket with organic vegetables. This brought LaTop's total market outlets from three (3) to eight (8). Higher demand for
LaTop's organic products resulted in an increase in the coop's average monthly sales from P317,151.83 in 2008 to P490,937.56 in 2009 and P568,757.94
as of June 2010.
To protect both legitimate organic farmers and consumers, the Foundation assisted the LaTop in securing a certifcation from the Organic Certifcation Center
of the Philippines. Ìn addition, the Foundation, together with LaTop, advocated the crafting of organic farming standards to the Benguet provincial government.
The Foundation determined that microfnance services were needed more than ever to cushion the poor against the impact of the global fnancial crisis
in 2008. With no certainty on whether a recession was impending, the Foundation continued to extend loans to enterprising poor women in Baguio City,
La Trinidad and the surrounding municipalities of Tuba, Ìtogon, Atok and Tublay. As of June 2010, total loans released since the Foundation engaged in
microfnance in 2001 amounted to P200.38M while repayment rate amounted to 99.8%, cumulatively, or 99.13% for the year only. Portfolio at risk computed
from one day's missed payment as against loan balances was at 4.75% -- better than the 5% standard of the Microfnance Council of the Philippines.
The program generated modest revenues that have allowed the Foundation to sustain services to these enterprising women. With the continued services of
the program, a signifcant average increase of at least 15% in business income of clients was achieved. Subsequently, other family needs (i.e school tuition
fees and other school requirements, medicines and/or other health needs), house repairs, and purchase of household and business assets became more
affordable. The advocacy for clients to practice savings discipline greatly helped them cope with crises. More than this, the Foundation hopes that it will be
able to come up with microinsurance services in the near future to ensure that clients are protected from risks.
The Foundation also implemented programs in other parts of Northern Luzon. Ìn the Ìlocos Region, the UPSURGE project (Urban Partnerships for Sustainable
Upliftment, Renewal, Governance and Empowerment) funded by the World Bank through PHÌLSSA in the City of San Fernando, La Union was completed.
The project involved institutionalizing in the local government unit a viable model of civil society-local government-community partnership in addressing shelter

needs; improving physical, environmental conditions, and social well-being; and, enhancing economic opportunities. The target site was the Fisherman's
Village. As of November 2009, the turnover date of the project to the City, 100% of the 86 housing units were occupied; the Fisherman's Village Association
was strengthened and functional; and a structure was in place in the local government unit to address the housing needs.
The ÌnLivesPro (Ìntegrating Livestock Production & Environmental Protection) Project funded by Heifer Phils, Ìnc. was completed in Roxas, Ìsabela during
the fscal year. Using Heifer's innovative model, an initial 55 families were able to cascade benefts of the project to an additional 110 families over the almost
3-year period. Livestock, seedlings and farm tools were distributed to the partner families; para-veterinarians were trained; families were taught on vermi-
composting; and, savings and loans groups were organized.
The Coop Organizing and Capability Building Project funded by Philip Morris Philippines Manufacturing, Ìnc. (now PMFTC, Ìnc.) was expanded from Region
1 to Region 2. Geared at organizing tobacco farmers and enabling them to manage fuelwood and bamboo plantations, the eight (8) farmers organizations
were strengthened and assisted in establishing 5-hectare plantations in each of the target sites in Santol and Sudipen, La Union; San Emilio and San Juan,
Ìlocos Sur; Delfn Albano and San Mariano, Ìsabela; and Sto Nino and Gattaran in Cagayan province. Cordillera Green Network, another partner NGO of
PMFTC, recorded the survival rate of seedlings planted by these farmer organizations at 70%. This was better than the 50% survival rate of individually
distributed seedlings and higher than expected considering the strong typhoons and El Nino that beset the country during the period.
The Foundation was also tapped by PMFTC to implement a curing barn construction project to address the need for a more fuel-effcient curing technology
that will allow tobacco farmers to reduce their costs and decrease the volume of fuelwood utilized. The project, which involved the construction of 40 barns
in the Ìlocos Region, was completed in a period of three months and resulted in a 25.7% reduction in fuelwood consumption and up to P3,339/ha in savings.
A better curing technology will also contribute to forest protection efforts in Region 1 started by the Foundation in 2008.
Ìn October 2009, Northern Luzon was badly affected by Typhoon Pepeng (international code name Parma). Microfnance clients were not spared with seven
(7) clients living in Little Kibungan Village among those who perished and lost their homes. Organic farmer members of LaTop found their fertile top soil and
retaining walls washed out, and their greenhouses literally gone with the wind. Ìn response, the Foundation implemented a moratorium to enable the victims
to get back on their feet and restore their livelihoods. Ìn addition, the Foundation received relief funds which were used to purchase emergency commodities
for other worse off victims in the provinces of Benguet and Pangasinan.
Adversity, so they say, comes with opportunity. The HEKS, a Swiss NGO, and FSSÌ immediately came forward with farm rehabilitation assistance for victims
in Benguet. As of June 2010, a total of of 150 farmers from the municipalities of Atok, Tuba, La Trinidad and Tublay received zero-interest loans payable
over 18 months. PACAP, on the other hand, provided a supplemental loan fund purposely for LaTop members whose farms were damaged by the typhoon.
Challenges, like a rough-cut stone, have to be painstakingly chipped away to reveal gems of opportunities. Ìn the next fscal year we foresee another period
for us to continue honing our skill in our core programs. As we move on to our 31st year in social development, we look back with pride on our humble
beginnings and face the future with renewed hope and gratitude for the gifts of donors and partners who share our vision.

Upgrading Farmer’s Capacity through Enhanced Production and
Marketing: Sustainable Agriculture through Organic Farming
The La Top Success Story
Ì
t is believed that a sustainable
approach to organic agriculture is
to greatly improve both production
as well as the marketing capabilities
of farmers. This was the primary
objective of the project ¨Upgrading
La Top Capacity through Enhanced
Production and Marketing¨ supported
by the Philippine ÷ Australia
Community Assistance Program.
The project aimed to redefne La
Top, not merely as a farmer-producer
cooperative, but as a business
model for sustainable production and
marketing of organic vegetables.
The signifcant improvements in the
management of La Top's operations
made the cooperative more enticing
and accommodating to potential
members. The project established
an effcient and accurate record
keeping system that is able to
present up-to-date fnancial records
needed in decision making and
minimized errors and problems in
recording of delivery, sales and
inventory with the development
of a point-of-sale (POS) system.
La Top was also able to establish
minimum quality standards for their
processed vegetable products and
strengthen their star-ranking system
that guaranteed the quality of all the
products of the cooperative.

The project also enabled La Top to
identify and implement necessary
strategies that could maximize use
of their available resources and
lead to more income generating
opportunities. La Top was able to
diversify their product offerings to
their consumers which now include
ready-to-eat fresh organic vegetables
and organic vegetable enriched
noodles. La Top still needs to improve
on their skills and knowledge on
these business endeavors but the
project had provided them with the
necessary technical and material
support to initiate these activities.
To improve on marketing, the project
aimed to enable La Top to properly
target consumer and marketing
opportunities. La Top was able to
increase its market outlets to 8 from
the 3 regular markets to include
churches, institutions (University of
the Philippines) and supermarkets
(SM). The new delivery vehicle
provided by the project maximized
both product delivery and inspection
of members' compliance. La Top
was able to increase its delivery to
18 crates of vegetables from the
14 crates. The cooperative was
also able to immediately complete
the regular inspection and conduct
surprise inspections if necessary.
Production wise, La Top was able to
identify a crop production program
that is more suitable to the member's
preferences and crop adaptability.
The Green Financing Support also
provided timely fnancial assistance
to 83 La Top members who were
able to improve and expand their
production areas.
Ìn terms of community support,
the establishment of vermicast
production facilities under the project
was instrumental in addressing
the concern for a steady source of
organic fertilizer for would-be organic
farmers but without a source of
compost materials.
Overall, the project was instrumental
in enhancing the production and
marketing capacity of La Top MPC.
More farmers are now aware that
organic farming is an economically
viable agricultural technology for
increasing production and income of
small-farmers.

T
he spate of calamities during
the last quarter of 2009 left
the Province of Benguet
devastated. The damage brought
about by Typhoon Parma (Pepeng)
posed a great threat to the economic
and food security of the country.
The typhoon caused massive
landslides that left damages to
property, livelihood, socio-economic
infrastructure and claimed lives
of people in the Province. The
Municipality of Atok had the most
number of affected farmers among
the 13 municipalities of Benguet.
When Mr. Narciso Tiotio or Mang
Narciso received the materials he
requested to be loaned he was very
thankful for the timely assistance
extended by the Agricultural
Rehabilitation Support Project of
the FSSÌ-HEKS. Mang Narciso,
38 years old and with 5 children, is
among the 1.894 farmers of Atok that
were affected by Typhoon Pepeng.
FSSI-HEKS Typhoon Parma Agricultural
Rehabilitation Support Project
Mang Narciso narrated that they are
totally dependent on their rice farm
for their needs and when his farm
and crops were washed out during
typhoon Pepeng, they were left
without any other source of income.
He mentioned that he had no other
means to rehabilitate his farm and
was already considering borrowing
from any lender when the project
was implemented.
Mang Narciso pointed out that
although the loan amount was
limited, they were at least provided
something to start with. He was
very thankful for the zero interest
assistance extended by the project
since they can proceed with their
production while not having to think of
paying high interest rates if they had
borrowed from banks or individual
lenders. To date, Mang Narciso
already started planting chayote and
intends to apply for a re-loan if he
will be allowed which he will use as
additional capital for crop production.
HEKS is an inter Church agency
based in Zurich, Germany that
partnered with the Foundation for
Sustainable Society, Ìnc. (FSSÌ) to
provide the much needed support
to these affected farmers to help
them in their immediate recovery
from the damages of their livelihood.
The FSSÌ-HEKS Typhoon Parma
Agricultural Rehabilitation Support
Project aimed to deliver agriculture
rehabilitation support through a zero
interest loan to at least 250 affected
farmers from the municipalities of
Atok, Tuba, La Trinidad and Tublay.
Farm inputs, farm materials for
rehabilitation and cash for labor were
provided to the farmers based on their
needed specifcations. This system
will help lessen the dependency of
farmers on local lending institutions.

Micro-credit and Beyond: JVOFI’s Decade Journey
T
he Foundation adopts the triple bottomline approach where economic development is one of the core principles together with social and environmental
development. As such, the Microfnance project was launched a decade ago using the ASA methodology. This scheme has the facility to reach out
to a larger number of clients with enterprising poor women as its target sector. Under this methodology, loans and savings products and services are
brought to the doorstep of poor and under-privileged clients.
JVOFÌ's current status evolved to suit the demands of the times, the environment where it operates and the industry itself. Ìn implementing the holistic
approach, the Foundation espoused the following to improve its effectiveness and effciency in the delivery of its products and services:
a. Social performance management
The achievement of the program's performance was made so by being in-touch with our clients regularly through monitoring and evaluation by means
of surveys and interviews. Matching of products and services with clients' needs and wants is very crucial for both the Foundation and the clients; thus,
client satisfaction and exit surveys were conducted to ensure that JVOFÌ was adequately responding to clients' needs. Consequently, clients claimed
that improvement in their business income was realized at an average increase of at least 15% compared against the period when no additional capital
input was obtained yet from the Foundation. Proxy indicators were likewise notable. Clients said that purchase of household/business assets, household
repairs, unforeseen school requirements, and medicines for normal sicknesses are now affordable to them.
b. Micro-insurance
Clients of microfnance are vulnerable to the many risks of life that even if they have crossed the poverty line, crises such as disasters or unforeseen
problems can easily revert them to their poor status thus necessitating the provision of safety nets.
Seven (7) clients of the Foundation's microfnance program were not spared from the wrath of Typhoon Pepeng last year. They were among those who
perished in the Little Kibungan landslide which took away their families and properties that they acquired through the years. Apart from the continued
º
Jaime V. Ongpin Foundation, Inc.
Enabling Communities Towaras Self-Reliance
fnancial assistance that JVOFÌ provides to help clients recover in times of disaster, micro-insurance is an additional service that the Foundation hopes to
extend in the near future.
As of June 30, 2010, the program's performance is presented in the table as follows:
Armed with the new strategies and with the zeal of staff, the Foundation hopes to sustainably continue its advocacy on self-reliance and pursue its mandate
on poverty reduction in its areas of operation and beyond where services are mostly needed.

aime V. Ongpin Foundation, Ìnc. engages in special projects to develop its skill in other felds, and
to share its expertise to other geographical areas in Northern Luzon while generating additional
resources for its core programs. During the fscal year, the Foundation implemented three (3)
special projects.
The Urban Partnerships for Sustainable Upliftment, Renewal, Governance and Empowerment
(UPSURGE) project was implemented in partnership with the Philippine Support Services Agencies
(PHÌLSSA) and the City of San Fernando, La Union. Ìts goal was to improve the housing, physical and
environmental conditions of the urban poor. This project was funded by the Japan Social Development
Fund managed by the World Bank .
The second special project was the ¨Passing-on-theGifts¨ supported by Heifer Ìnternational Philippines.
Ìt provided livestock and other agricultural supplies and technical assistance to poor farming communities
in Ìsabela over a more than two-year period. The project was replicated in Tadian, Mountain Province
beginning June 2010.
The third special project was the Coop Organizing and Capacity Building project for tobacco farmers in
regions 1 and 2 who will manage the fuelwood and bamboo plantation sites established by the project.
This was funded by Philip Morris Philippines Manufacturing, Ìnc. (Now PMFTC, Ìnc.) in recognition of its
social obligation to contribute to environmental protection efforts more so that the industry is dependent
on the availability of bamboo and timber to cure tobacco.

n November 26, 2009, the project on Urban
Partnerships for Sustainable Upliftment,
Renewal, Governance and Empowerment
at the Fisherman's Village in the City of San
Fernando, La Union (UPSURGE) formally came to
a close. This project was implemented by JVOFÌ
in partnership with the City of San Fernando, La
Union, the Philippine Support Service Agencies
(PHÌLSSA) and the World Bank.
Ìn a festive ceremony at the Fisherman's Village,
JVOFÌ turned over the completed facilities and
related equipment to the city government, which in
turn encouraged residents to sustain and improve
on the development gains they had made. JVOFÌ
also turned over to the city government project
documents, symbolizing that the latter would
hence on take an even more active leadership in
sustaining the project and replicating its strategies
in other communities in the city.
As of November 2009, all 86 units in the
community were improved and occupied. A one-
storey multipurpose building was also completed
to serve as the venue for meetings and other
community gatherings. Ìn this new settlement, the
residents who are mainly fshermen, are still close
to their main sources of livelihood and to other
facilities and services, including health, education,
commerce, and have access to basic services
such as electricity and water.
The almost two years of Project UPSURGE - the
City of San Fernando, La Union accomplished the
local government's goal of providing a resettlement
area for some residents of Ìlocanos Norte and
Ìlocanos Sur who were vulnerable to storm and
fooding. They are now freed of worries about
typhoons and foods and can sleep well even if
there are typhoons.
Urban Partnerships
for Sustainable
Upliftment, Renewal,
Governance and
Empowerment
The project was able to demonstrate that a dynamic
multisectoral partnership can bring about improved
living conditions for the urban poor. Ìt was much
more than providing just physical infrastructure
improvements to the residents. Ìn being active
participants of the Project UPSURGE, they were
able to forge a stronger link as community through
their homeowners' association and establish a
partnership with their city government. They also
became more aware of the empowering presence
of NGO workers and the private sector, particularly
contractor-companies.
As JVOFÌ pulled out from its work in San Fernando
City, the city government was placed at the position
of sustaining and scaling up the achievements
made in the FVA project and using it as a model
for similar projects in the future.
