SHED is a non-profit, non-stock corporation registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission of the Philippines last March 28, 2011. Its ambitious vision is to help end poverty and all forms of exploitation. SHED operates on 3 business platforms to ensure its sustainability: Microfinance is its business platform; Values formation according to the universal values of The Word of God is its Moral platform; Building responsible communities among its members through a covenant of living out the Business and Moral platforms is our Social platform. For now, our focus is on providing access to collateral-free micro loans to help the poor start up or enhance livelihood at household level. Micro-insurance is also provided the poor members in partnership with established Micro-Insurance Companies. Education, Health Care and Housing are our next target of priorities for the poor once SHED is able to establish an appropriate level of sustainability. Our initial capitalization is provided by key members of the Board of Trustees. Ruben C. de Lara and Rene E. Cristobal, are Co-Founders of SHED. De Lara acts as President and CEO, providing his services pro bono, or free, since SHED's inception.
