LANDBANK presence helps advance development in Sarangani

612

Residents of the Province of Sarangani are able to save up money, time, and effort
when conducting banking transactions, with offsite ATM facilities of the Land Bank of
the Philippines (LANDBANK) now strategically installed in all municipalities of the
province.

Sarangani Provincial Treasurer Eliza Cania emphasizes the convenience and security
that LANDBANK touchpoints provide to residents in servicing banking and financial
requirements.

“Walang private cars ang marami sa ating mga constituents. The presence of
LANDBANK ATMs in all municipalities is a very big help to each of our government
employees and private citizens. Hindi na nila kailangan pumunta sa kapitolyo para
lang makapag-withdraw o gumawa ng basic banking transactions,” said Treasurer
Cania.


LANDBANK’s total of 11 ATMs across Sarangani Province also contribute to the
immediate delivery of financial assistance to 44,000 beneficiaries under the
Conditional and Unconditional Cash Transfer (CCT and UCT) Programs of the
Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD).

The ATMs are complemented by 11 Agent Banking Partners operating on behalf of
the Bank to deliver financial services to far-flung communities in Sarangani—one of
the fastest-growing provinces in the SOCCKSARGEN region.

“The availability of various LANDBANK touchpoints in Sarangani are complementary
by design to provide customers convenience. They can always withdraw cash from
nearby LANDBANK ATMs, transact through our Agent Banking Partners, and perform
online transactions via our digital banking services,” said LANDBANK President and
CEO Cecilia C. Borromeo.



Over the years, LANDBANK has maintained a meaningful relationship with Sarangani
Province as a partner in promoting financial inclusion and sustainable local
development.

The Bank has extended to the local government units (LGUs) of the province access
to different digital banking facilities such as the weAccess and Link.BizPortal, which have been crucial in effectively delivering uninterrupted essential services at the
height of the COVID-19 surge in the province.


Through the LANDBANK Alabel and General Santos Highway Branches, Sarangani
LGUs also make use of the Bank’s payroll and electronic salary loan services for the
financing needs of employees.

The LANDBANK General Santos Lending Center also services the developmental
requirements of the provincial and municipal LGUs to advance local recovery and
build more resilient communities.

“LANDBANK has helped us post remarkable growth in our economy. You also helped
us deliver and accomplish our plans and programs for the province. For that, we are
truly grateful for the LANDBANK Management and Team,” Provincial Treasurer Cania
added.

LANDBANK is the only bank present in all 81 provinces of the country, with its
continued expansion anchored on promoting financial inclusion, especially in
unbanked and underserved far-flung areas.

As of 30 June 2022, LANDBANK has a total of 608 branches, 58 lending centers,
2,847 ATMs, and 233 cash deposit machines (CDMs) nationwide.
