Small and medium businesses in the Philippines account for approximately 99 percent of commercial establishments in the country but, likewise, are the most vulnerable segment to the challenges posed by COVID-19. Business owners struggle to remain afloat as lockdowns prevent their customers from buying their goods and services. Now with the government considering easing restrictions, it is also drawing up lending programs, such as credit restructuring and microfinancing, for these affected entrepreneurs and in a bid to jumpstart the backbone of the economy.
Join us at this webinar as we invite the Development Bank of the Philippines, the Small Business Corporation, and the Agricultural Credit Policy Council as they walk us through the different loan facilities available for MSMEs and those engaged in Agribusiness.
