We are pleased to announce the start of the Citi Microentrepreneurship Awards (CMA) for 2016. The Citi Microentrepreneurship Awards program is a nationwide search for outstanding Filipino microentrepreneurs. Funded by Citi Foundation, the program is implemented in the country by Citi Philippines together with BSP and the Microfinance Council of the Philippines, Inc.
