Landbank PNP

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.
