ANGELES CITY – It is another joyous day for the real estate industry as FIESTA Communities, Inc. (FIESTA) – a home-grown developer of socialized and economic housing – receives the Gawad Kaagapay 2015 Award for Large Corporation (Non-Agri Based).
This prestigious award, presented during the recently concluded Appreciation Luncheon and Awarding Ceremony held at Fortune Hongkong Seafood Restaurant in Balibago, last Friday, September 11, longs to recognize and honor corporations that contribute to the benefit and improvement of micro, small and medium enterprises.
FIESTA is borne from the desire to realize hopes, uplift lives and empower communities through safe and decent homes – a vision shared by Land Bank of the Philippines, the largest formal credit institution serving the rural areas and small countryside businesses, helping them grow. This partnership, which has lasted for more than a decade, led the development of over 300 hectares of land and secured shelter for some 23,000 families
In celebration of this wonderful feat and sensible partnership, the cash prize that came with the award was matched by FIESTA, for the benefit of Tuloy Foundation, Inc., a non-government, non-profit organization founded in 1993 by Fr. Rocky Evangelista, striving to provide care, services, education, and life-skills training to the disadvantaged youth, housed at Bahay Bata Center in Angeles City.
FIESTA has also been recognized by numerous award-giving bodies since its inception in 2007, including The Philippine Quill Award of Excellence 2014 for HDMF Needs Matching Program – Employee Village, Federation Internationale des Administrateurs de Bien-Conselis Immobiliers (FIABCI) Outstanding Developer for Mass Housing Award 2015, and the Association of Development Financing Institutions in Asia and the Pacific (ADFIAP) Development Award 2015 for Needs Matching Program from Nha Trang, Vietnam.
