"Who has given the ultimate verdict that people are motivated only by money 
--that the desire to do great things for the world can't be just as powerful 
a driving force in human behavior?"
-Muhammad Yunus, Creating a World Without Poverty

Founded in 2011, Usbong Social Systems, Inc. (Usbong)
is a SEC-registered Computer Services company
in the Philippines.

Our mission is to defeat poverty by uplifting human lives. Our vision is a community where there is everlasting peace

More concretely, Usbong is a social business that offers solutions that serve clients from industry, academe, and government.

We learned that we can solve the poverty problem
via maparaang pagbibilang.

Therefore, Usbong’s products and services
include among others:

1) development of add-on software automation tools
2) training of client unit members

The purpose of these is to systematically count, file, and calculate data using computers and mobile computing devices.

In addition, as a technology assistance service provider, our metric for success in strengthening our clients is primarily based on our software/computer/machine’s quality,
i.e. 1) speed, and 2) being correct.

We are headquartered in Marikina City, Philippines, albeit the company maintains a network of people based within Asia-Pacific, Europe, and North America.

"Usbong" in Filipino is both a noun and a verb. As a noun, it can mean "a bud, a sprout, a shoot". As a verb, it means "to sprout, to grow, to develop". In Binisaya, it means "to burgeon, to grow, to expand, and to flourish".

*Here we define poverty as the denial or absence of human rights, as stipulated by the United Nations' Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
