The activity started with a Thanksgiving Mass celebration in the morning; followed by a formal program at exactly 11:00 am, with an introduction and opening remarks given by the HOA President, Norma T. Quezon; followed by a brief occupancy background given by Estrella Gallego, one of the pioneering occupants of the community.

MELCAH Village HOA was organized last July 21, 2016, because of the impending demolition order issued to the occupants of Purok San Miguel, Barangay Calumpang, Gen. Santos City, where some of their members came from.

For the past five years of organizing, capacity building, and documentation process, the HOA members have achieved their dream project milestone — the LOAN TAKE OUT to be paid to the landowner, and which will now pave the way to the realization of each and every member’s ambition to own a piece of land where they can build their own home and dreams.

MELCAH Village HOA was taken out last August 4, 2021, with total loan proceeds of Php 4,772,000.00 from Social Housing Finance Corporation, to be paid monthly by the members in 25 years starting September 4, 2021. Such payments will be monitored by the CMP Mobilizer of the MELCAH Village HOA — KPS Foundation, Inc., to ensure a good collection efficiency rating.
