Strategic Partnerships

NRBSL has maintained its good standing with its partner institutions. The Bank has been granted renewal anew of its accreditation both from its funding sources and guarantee-giving governmental agencies. The credit line facilities with LBP, SBC, DBP and BSP are all active and readily accessible.

In late 2017 NRBSL became a recipient of P16M funds from the Agricultural Credit and Policy Council for the implementation of Production Loan Easy Access (PLEA) program of the Department of Agriculture. By March 2018, another approval of P30M was granted in favor of the Bank to reach-out to more small farmers and livestock raisers. The engagement is a risk-free transaction at zero cost to the Bank. The credit facility is non-interest bearing for NRBSL with a pass-on rate of only 6% to end-borrowers. NRBSL is delighted to roll-out this credit facility to as many marginalized farmers being the most affordable interest rate ever in small agricultural financing. NRBSL’s exposure is fully secured in the engagement as the ultimate risk-taker is ACPC.

NRBSL was also chosen as conduit of ACPC for the distribution of funds under its Survival and Recovery (SURE) Program intended to assist small livestock raisers and farm laborers who became victims of bird flu epidemic in southern Nueva Ecija. In line with risk mitigation and asset protection mechanism, all NRBSL’s partner-agencies have renewed with increases the guarantee facilities in favor of the Bank. The grant of these renewals reflects the trust and confidence NRBSL enjoys from these agencies as a result of compliance to program rules.
