Lihok Pilipina: Women on the Move

(2000, 30 minutes, Producer/Director: Marsha Emerman)

On the island of Cebu in the heart of the Philipppines, an extraordinary credit program is transforming women’s lives.  This video documents the work of Lihok Pilipina, a remarkable organization that offers low interest loans, business training and community development to women in Cebu’s poorest neighbourhoods.  It offers intimate portraits of women who are on the move – from poverty and powerlessness, to dignity, secure livelihoods and self esteem.  Commissioned by the International Women’s Development Agency.
