Member and Client Development Office (MCDO) Initiatives

FairBank as a customer-centric financial organization considers its clients as partner in growth and development. As a partner, they were provided with developmental programs that intend to enrich their skills in managing business and resources. Over the years, the bank introduced activities and endeavored to build clients potentials and promote capabilities thru trainings and tailored-fit financial services.


In achieving a lasting partnership with the clients as well as ensuring their growth while in the program, the bank established a separate office which was tasked to administer projects both for clients and the community thru Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). The Member and Client Development Office (MCDO) was created with a mandate of developing research-based initiatives for clients and the community in particular along with the microfinance services of the bank.
