A Message from the NLDC President

Welcome to the website of the National Livelihood Development Corporation.

The NLDC has a relatively long history since its establishment in 1981, with the creation of the Kilusang Kabuhayan at Kaunlaran or KKK. The KKK has since evolved through subsequent changes in government to ultimately become the NLDC.

Today, NLDC actively pursues a package of livelihood and enterprise development programs and interventions to hasten socio-economic growth in the countryside especially in the hard-to-reach agrarian reform communities (ARC). The NLDC serves sectors at the bottom rung of the economic ladder by making financing available to them and also by engaging them in capability-building programs.

This website was established to give its visitor an array of information, news, and reports as well as latest developments concerning the various activities of the agency. It is designed with user friendly features that facilitate quick access to information and resources by our clientele. We hope you will find our website interesting as well as beneficial. Please feel free to send us any suggestions or ideas that you may have aimed at improving this website.

President, NLDC
