CABLING TO LOCAL GOVERNMENTS: AVAIL OF SHFC HOUSING PROGRAM

A GOVERNMENT shelter official  urged local government units (LGUs) in Negros Occidental to avail themselves of the Social Housing Finance Corporation (SHFC) housing loan services in providing housing needs of its constituents.

During the recent joint Provincial Development Council (PDC) and Provincial Peace and Order Council meeting at the Negros First Residences, SHFC president and lawyer Arnolfo Ricardo Cabling said the country has 6.5 million housing backlog and is still growing.

Beneficiaries may also opt to own a property through usufruct for 99 years, he added.

He cited San Carlos City that has a resettlement area having site development like road network, drainage, septic tank and lot but has no housing component. The city has entered into a Memorandum of Agreement with the SHFC for a housing project.

San Carlos City alone could have around 20,000 to 50,000 housing needs and Bacolod City could have a bigger housing needs as a booming area, he said.

“There’s a need to partner with LGUs. It is high time to give our constituents a comfortable shelter,” Cabling said.

Negros Occidental is a fast developing province that has been hit by typhoons in the past.

“The law states that areas in danger zones must be secured,” he pointed out.

He said the SHFC is exploring partnership with the Provincial Government to develop a housing project for provincial and national government employees.

SHFC is one of the government’s shelter agencies and is attached with the Human Settlements.

“I hope LGUs here will work with us, after all we provided very flexible shelter solutions,” he said

Atty. ARNOLFO RICARDO CABLING
President
Social Housing Finance Corporation (SHFC)
Makati, Philippines

Dear Atty. CABLING,

May I have the honor to apply in your corporation for a job that fits my qualification, specifically related to photography and news gathering and reporting.
I have basic knowledge and experience in these two disciplines.
These are capabilities that earned me a job with the Davao City government: City Information Office (2011-2012) and the City Tourism Office (2012-2013). The job entailed covering and reporting on events of the two offices.
In addition, I did news reporting and photography job for the defunct weekly newspaper Davao City-based The Durian Post. I continue to contribute to the paper’s online editions The Durian Post and TopNewsNow!
The Social Housing Finance Corporation (SHFC) is the government agency providing housing for the homeless poor.
In as much as providing shelter to the homeless poor is one of the flagship programs of the administration of President Rodrigo Duterte, SHFC is also mandated to reach out to a wide sector of the homeless poor in order to maximize information dissemination, particularly through the media, about this vital program of the government.
I am confident that as a photographer and news reporter, I would be able to contribute to the effort to spread out to the homeless poor the SHFC social housing programs.
With my capability and experience, I am confident that if given the opportunity, I could be an asset in the SHFC mandate to deliver valuable services to our homeless poor.

Very respectfully yours,

 

SYLVESTER C. BALANZA
