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.
As a policy bank, LANDBANK largely contributes to advancing the socio-economic development agenda of the National Government (NG). At the core of its operations is its role as a catalyst of sustainable development, responding to the financing requirements not only of small farmers and fishers, but also of local government units, micro, small and medium enterprises, private corporations in strategically important industries, government-owned and controlled corporations, financial institutions, and other sectors that create employment and propel robust economic growth.
Through its financing interventions, LANDBANK provides communities with infrastructure and social services that improve people’s quality of life. Assisted projects include the construction of farm-to-market roads, hospitals, schools, and housing projects; communication; transportation; provision and connection of households to potable water; and electrification. LANDBANK has also been consistent in incorporating environmental and social commitments toward sustainability and aggressive in accelerating financial inclusion by bringing the previously unbanked into the formal banking system, thereby promoting a more equitable participation of Filipinos in the growth of the nation.
Alongside its roles as financial intermediary of the NG for the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program, and as its official depository bank, LANDBANK also serves as the distribution arm of the government’s various Social Protection Programs. Because of its significant role in the economy, LANDBANK strives to strengthen its financial viability and operational agility, while maintaining its competitive advantage. It is the leading government financial institution that is consistently ranked among the top universal banks in the Philippines in terms of assets, deposits, loans and capital.
