ABOUT LANDBANK
The Land Bank of the Philippines is a government financial
institution that strikes a balance in fulfilling its social mandate of
promoting countryside development while remaining financially
viable.

This dual function makes LANDBANK unique. The profits derived


from its commercial banking operations are used to finance the
Bank's developmental programs and initiatives.

Over the years, LANDBANK has successfully managed this tough


balancing act as evidenced by the continued expansion of its
loan portfolio in favor of its priority sectors: the farmers and
fisherfolk, small and medium enterprises and microenterprises,
livelihood loans and agribusiness, agri-infrastructure and other
agri- and environment-related projects, socialized housing,
schools and hospitals.

Today, LANDBANK is by far the largest formal credit institution in


the rural areas. Its credit delivery system is able to penetrate a
substantial percentage of the country's total number of
municipalities.

LANDBANK also ranks among the top five commercial banks in


the country in terms of deposits, assets, loans and capital.

From its initial role as the financing arm of the agrarian reform,
LANDBANK has evolved into a full-service commercial bank. But
the essence of its existence has not changed at all - and that is to
make the countryside continuously throb with life.
