Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) Officers hold a Project Field Visit and Mission to Iloilo provincial government and partner municipalities of Pavia, Badiangan and Miag-ao last October 29, 2010.

As the funding agency assisting the GREAT Women Project, CIDA regularly conducts field visits of Project sites, following semestral Project Steering Committee Meetings to observe project developments and to conduct dialogue on issues and concerns of women microentrepreneurs (WMEs) and Project key players. They are joined by GREAT Women Project Manager Luzviminda Villanueva and Deputy Director Lorenza Umali.
