May 27, 2022 – ARDCI Microfinance Incorporated (ARDCI MFI) once again ventures on another first as they launch ARDCI Business Center (ABC), today at Barangay Moonwalk, Virac, Catanduanes.
ABDC is the newest commercial hub in the island established to help our locals launch their enterprises. Now dubbed as the town’s up-and-coming business district, ABDC promises to be a steward of vibrant and thriving businesses, and a place of leisure to our fellow Catandunganons.

Bitome, BOT Chairman for ARDCI MFI; Maria Belma Escueta, DTI Representative; Juris Alfafara of Radyo Pilinas; Retchie Molina, Buko Frio Franchise Owner; and Normilyn Marino, Mister Donut Franchise Owner.
Today also marks another milestone for ARDCI MFI as the company opens its first retail subsidiary – ARDCIMart. ARDCIMart endeavors to be the province’s premier trade supermarket and grocery store where shoppers can choose from a wide selection of high-quality goods at reasonable prices.
