How to Apply for BanKo NegosyoKo Loan?


BPI Direct BanKO, Inc., is a Savings Bank and a subsidiary of the Bank of the Philippine Islands who focused on delivering financial solutions like easy and affordable loans to self-employed micro entrepreneurs (SEMEs). Last October 22, 2019 BanKo conducted Palengke Caravan at Bankeronhan Market, Davao City where they reached out and treat more self-employed, micro-entrepreneurs (SEMEs) with a day of pampering like free grooming services followed by financial training seminar on “How to live a financially-resilient life” lead by Rod Mabiasen, BanKo Enterprise Loans and Branch Network Head.

“Our SEME partners are some of the hardest working people we’ve met, so we treated them to a morning of mani-pedis a haircuts to make them feel good and ready for the week. We also held a financial resiliency training class because it’s not enough to just make a good living. We have to learn how to save and make our money work for us over the long term. We need to lose the get-rich-quick and one-day-millionaire mentalities and understand the value of financial planning and discipline,” said Mabiasen.

“The Philippines is still a developing country, with 75% of its adult population remaining unbanked. Despite being able to run a profitable business, many of our SEMEs could not obtain standard bank loans because they lack awareness or proper documentation,” said Mabiasen.

To address this, BanKo has tailored its products and services to meet the needs and capabilities of FilipinoSEMEs, by easing documentary and deposit requirements for opening an account and providing specialized financial advisers to help customers navigate the loan application process.
BanKo SEME customers typically apply for NegosyoKo loans, which range from Php 25,000 to Php 300,000, with low interest rate of 2-2.3% per month. BanKo has also streamlined its processing so that eligible customers can have their loans released within three to five banking days upon submission of complete requirements, and channel the funds to growing their business. Here are the list of requirement for your reference.

BanKo’s efforts have led to meaningful growth for our customers who are now able to enjoy the services they need and deserve.
