As part of broadening APPEND’s services, we have recently launched our newest publication—a magazine called TAGUMPAY. It is a magazine that will equip, inspire and empower our constituents, primarily our clients and their families. It showcases inspiring and exceptional client stories; share helpful business ideas, tools, and advice; highlight our initiatives related to OFWs, agriculture, forestry, fishing, and the environment; impart Christian values to help strengthen the individuals, their families, work ethics, and character; provide updates on the different activities of the network; and so much more.
TAGUMPAY magazine will be published quarterly, and is envisaged to be a vehicle to increase awareness among the households about APPEND as a network organization. It will likewise familiarize the clients and readers with the other members of the APPEND family, who share the same vision and mission for the microfinance and microenterprise sector in the country. More importantly, as APPEND hopes to generate income from this venture, the Board has decided that part of the proceeds will go to APPPEND’s scholarship program for deserving students of our clients, which we have started in 2010.
Our maiden issue which was published and released on the second week of September 2017, has for its cover story, the Tubo Cane Juice business of Ardy and Miriam Quiambao-Roberto. It also highlights true-to-life success stories of our clients, including a testimony of a model Overseas Filipino worker, and an article featuring the initiative of an LGU for microenterpreneurs. Along with business tips, practical and commercialized technologies on various aspects of agriculture and animal husbandry are also included.
We invite interested outfits and individuals to advertise in Tagumpay which will provide your business with exposure to our targeted magazine readers—and potentially, an even wider readership. Through this magazine, you will be able to reach communities who may not normally read or much less subscribe to magazines or other publications regularly. In addition as we envision Tagumpay magazine to be read by all Filipinos, APPEND friends and members contribute PhP30.00 for every copy to help defray the cost of production and publication of Tagumpay magazine.
Kindly let us know if you are interested to either advertise in our magazine or get copies at PhP30/copy. Please feel free to contact either Joan Ruth Roda or Issay Sevilla at email@example.com or phone number (63 2) 930-6930.
