Credit provision for small and poor households has always been the major element of nongovernment organizations in alleviating poverty. Recently, there has been a move to replicate the Bangladesh Grameen Bank in the Philippines known as Landless Peopleâ€™s Development Fund. This paper assesses its financial viability at the borrowerâ€™s level. The institutionâ€™s sustainability is also investigated in terms of sources and fund utilization, administration costs and other branches of financial viability.
