When it comes to business, the more options, the better. BPI has more choices alongside homegrown products and services. BPI works in direct link with government financing conduits such as the BSP, DBP, LBP, SSS, SBGFC and LGUGC to offer funding and guarantee facilities to SMEs, multinational and other corporate borrowers. These facilities are available to a number of industries among which are production, storage facilities, distribution, services, agribusiness, transport, import/export, logistics and environmental.
BSP’S Rediscounting Facility
The Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas can fund up to 80% of the promissory note for short-term financing, with fixed interest rate for the entire term. Open to borrowers of all industrial concerns, regardless of asset size and loan amount, this facility was further enhanced by BSP by allowing electronic enrolment, processing and approval. Now called “E-rediscounting”, the rediscounting of short-term promissory notes is made remarkably quickly.
