Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)

The development intervention of NRBSL may be argued as a demonstration of its Corporate Social Responsibility with its pro-poor product offerings and the profile of rural communities reached by the Bank’s service delivery. As mentioned, the Bank’s products and services are intended to increase the capacities of the rural areas; cause the transformation of small farmers and entrepreneurs; make house financing available self-employed individuals and support socially relevant projects. On the side, NRBSL carried-out the following socio-civic activities in 2017.

  1. Repair and rehabilitation of Multipurpose Center in the Satellite Office of Municipal Mayor located in Ibona, Dingalan, Aurora

    NRBSL’s activities in Dingalan are aligned with the Development Plan of the LGU under the leadership of Mayor Sherwin Taay. When the latter decided to set-up an extension office in Barangay Ibona to reach-out to more constituents, the Bank helped finance the rehabilitation of a multi-purpose center in the area by providing funds for long span roofing and ceiling works of the building. The project cost in terms of construction materials and labor expenses reached P350,000.

  2. Youth Training and Support

    As a member of the Dingalan Consortium, NRBSL contributed funds for the conduct of a week-long, out-of-town, stay-in cultural and leadership training of young Dumagat tribe members. The training activity culminated with a cultural presentation and paved the way for the organization of Dumagat Youth Association. The Bank shared P30,000 for the whole activity.

    NRBSL is also supportive of poor but deserving students. In 2017, the Bank donated a laptop in favor of Desiree Irish Santos, an incoming high school freshman student who graduated at the top of her class. The unit is worth P20,000.

  3. Patronage of Performing Arts

    NRBSL Chairman served as a financial consultant to Philippine Educational Theater Assocation (PETA), a Magsaysay Awardee in 2017. For their cultural awareness and entertainment, the Bank officers and staff every now and then patronize PETA performances the last of which was the “Rak of Aegies” in 2017. To further hone their talents and art consciousness, PETA as part of its 50th Year Celebration, conducted a week-long festival-conference entitled “Festival of Windows: A Celebration of People's Theater and its Role in Development" to highlights the role of arts in development. NRBSL sponsored three (3) conference sessions worth P21,000.00.

    NRBSL also supported the world re-known UP Concert Chorus by showcasing their superb talent in singing for the appreciation of rural bankers in Central Luzon. The engagement which is worth P80,000 is part of the Chorale’s fund- raising drive to finance its participation in the next international choral competition the group is set to join.
