PNB Savings Bank received the New Consumer Lending Product of the Year Award for its Smart Salary Loan Program in the Asian Banking and Finance (ABF) 2017 Retail Banking Awards, held in Singapore. PNB Savings Bank’s Smart Salary Loan Program is a loan facility with low interest and light payment terms, payable in easy equal monthly payments through salary deduction. This program is open to all regular employees of accredited companies of the Bank. It helps employees enjoy more flexibility in their finances and allows them to live life to the fullest without draining their savings.

In partnership with FINTQ, the digital innovations arm of PLDT and Smart, this program was introduced and made available to clients via the tech-enabled loans platform, Lendr, last November 2016. This innovation seeks to provide clients a convenient and hassle-free mobile-enabled system that allows them to apply for a loan and get quick approvals through any digital device, anytime, and anywhere. Through this facility, clients can avoid the trouble of having to fill up long forms, filing several requirements, and lining up for long hours at the bank just to get a loan when they need it the most.

“Launching the Smart Salary Loan program via the Lendr platform is PNB Savings Bank’s way of living up to its brand promise of creating value and enriching lives, empowering our clients to make their dreams possible through practical and smart financial solutions, and easy-to-use digital-enabled facilities. Our clients can expect us to introduce more innovations that would elevate the whole customer experience and make banking with PNB Savings Bank completely hassle-free.” said Joven Hernandez, PNB Savings Bank President.
