LANDBANK boosts support for Cebu with new branch-lite

LILOAN, Cebu – The Land Bank of the Philippines (LANDBANK) opened a new branch-lite unit in this first-class town, as part of its commitment to promote greater financial inclusion and bolster Cebu Province’s bid for sustainable development. 

Located in front of the New Liloan Public Market in Barangay Jubay, the LANDBANK Liloan Branch-Lite brings banking services closer to residents of the 31 combined barangays of Liloan and neighboring town of Compostela, eliminating the need for clients to travel about 30 minutes to reach the nearest LANDBANK branches in the Municipality of Consolacion and Cities of Danao and Mandaue. 

“The presence of LANDBANK in Liloan is a testament to their commitment to serving the needs of our citizens, from farmers cultivating our fertile lands to entrepreneurs striving to build businesses, to big corporations and factories providing jobs to Liloanon—these will all contribute to the economic vitality of Liloan,” said Liloan Mayor Aljew Fernando J. Frasco.

The newly inaugurated LANDBANK branch-lite will serve and benefit around 2,000 farmers and fishers; 5,600 Conditional and Unconditional Cash Transfer (CCT/UCT) program beneficiaries of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD); government employees; and local and multinational businesses, among other private depositors.

LANDBANK President and CEO Lynette V. Ortiz, along with Department of Tourism (DOT) Secretary and former Liloan Mayor Ma. Esperanza Christina Garcia Frasco, House Deputy Speaker and Cebu 5th District Representative Vincent Franco D. Frasco, and Liloan Mayor Frasco, led the inauguration rites on 08 December 2023. 

Joining them were Liloan Vice Mayor Darwin T. Apas, LANDBANK Directors Atty. David D. Erro and Nancy D. Irlanda, LANDBANK Executive Vice President Liduvino S. Geron, Senior Vice Presidents Khurshid U. Kalabud, Elsie Fe NB. Tagupa, and Catherine Rowena B. Villanueva, and other local government officials. 

“With the opening of the LANDBANK Liloan Branch-Lite, we are enthusiastic about further enhancing our support to Liloan. We hope to draw more investors to the town and help fast-track sustainable growth for all,” said LANDBANK President Ortiz. 

The newly inaugurated branch-lite features an automated teller machine (ATM) for fast, safe, and convenient cash withdrawals, and a Digital Corner where clients can open a deposit account in 15 minutes or less using the LANDBANK Digital Onboarding System (DOBS).

LANDBANK now operates 27 branches and branch-lite units, and two lending centers across Cebu, complemented by 143 ATMs, five cash deposit machines (CDMs), and 19 LANDBANKasama Agent Banking Partners operating 59 Point-of-Sale (POS) terminals to service underserved communities.

Cebuanos can also enjoy free cash withdrawals at 173 ATMs located in 7-Eleven convenience stores across the province, as part of the Bank’s partnership with Pito Axm Platform, Inc. (PAPI). 

During the event, LANDBANK President Ortiz also reaffirmed LANDBANK’s commitment to supporting inclusive and sustainable development in Liloan and Cebu by extending financial support for priority projects. 

Beyond expanding its loan portfolio for the agriculture sector, LANDBANK aims to further support the town’s tourism sector to stimulate employment opportunities and economic activities.

LANDBANK is the only bank present in all 82 Philippine provinces with 606 branches and branch-lite units and 59 lending centers, and is committed to bring convenient banking services and accessible financial assistance closer to Filipinos nationwide.
