In line with this, Laxa expressed his intention to amplify efforts on local housing, emphasizing good partnership with the Caloocan local government unit.
“SHFC aims to bridge the gap in the housing problem for not everyone is eligible for a bank or home loan. We’ll target more housing projects and work with several local governments, including Caloocan, to help our fellow Filipinos,” Laxa said.
