The Land Bank of the Philippines (LANDBANK) is stepping-up its campaign on mobile banking as it inaugurates another LANDBANK Mobile Branch at the PNP Grandstand, Camp BGen. Rafael T. Crame in Quezon City on July 23, 2021, in partnership with the Philippine National Police (PNP).
Housed in a six-wheeler truck, the LANDBANK Mobile Branch functions as a pop-up branch to service communities across the country with disrupted or limited access to banking services. These include areas affected by calamities and other unexpected events.
As part of its efforts to bring more unbanked Filipinos into the formal banking system in support of the National Government’s financial inclusion agenda, the LANDBANK Mobile Branch will also be deployed in unbanked and underserved communities.
LANDBANK brought its new Mobile Branch to the PNP’s national headquarters for one whole day to cater exclusively to the banking needs of the country’s police officers and personnel. A total of 10 PNP officers and 100 PNP recruits opened their own LANDBANK ATM and payroll accounts, respectively.
PNP Chief Police General Guillermo Lorenzo T. Eleazar and Executive Vice President Julio D. Climaco, Jr., head of LANDBANK’s Branch Banking Sector, led the blessing and inauguration of the LANDBANK Mobile Branch.
Joining them from the PNP were Police Lieutenant Generals Joselito Manalad V. Cruz, Israel Ephraim T. Dickson, and Dionardo B. Carlos; Police Major General Rodolfo S. Azurin, Jr; and Police Brigadier Generals Jose Melencio C. Nartatez, Jr. and Jason D. Ortizo.
Also at hand were officials from LANDBANK led by Senior Vice President Ramon R. Monteloyola, head of the South National Capital Region Branches Group; Senior Vice President Marilou L. Villafranca, head of the North National Capital Region Branches Group; and Assistant Vice President Atty. Rosemarie J. Romillo, head of the Camp Crame Branch.
The LANDBANK Mobile Branch can facilitate banking services such as account opening and maintenance, deposit, withdrawal, encashment, debit or credit memo, online collection payment, enrollment in e-banking facilities, and ATM services.
It is also designed to assist the National Government during retail and emergency disbursements or payouts, including cash subsidies distribution under the programs of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) and other government agencies.
The LANDBANK Mobile Branch unit in Camp Crame, Quezon City, is one (1) of two (2) mobile branches recently rolled-out by LANDBANK, following the very first launch held in San Fernando City, Pampanga last July 21, 2021. The Mobile Branch will be heading south next to Legazpi City, Albay on July 29, 2021.
At present, LANDBANK has a total network of 411 branches and 66 branch-lite units, composed of branch-lites, Agri-Hubs, LEAFs, tellering booths, and FX booths across all 81 provinces in the country. This is complemented by 55 lending centers in strategic areas nationwide.
