With thousands of Filipinos suffering from job cuts and reduced monthly earnings amid the pandemic, it’s no wonder hundreds of Pag-ibig members queue up kilometric to avail of emergency loans at a Pag-ibig office like this one along Libertad St. in Pasay City.
Filipinos can expect faster processing of cash loan applications through the improved online service portal of the Home Development Mutual Fund (Pag-IBIG Fund).
Department of Human Settlements and Urban Development (DHSUD) Secretary Eduardo del Rosario on Friday said several improvements were made to boost the virtual services of the Pag-IBIG Fund during the quarantine period to fast-track the loan applications of the members.
“We heed the call of President [Rodrigo] Duterte to implement online systems to provide faster service to the public,” del Rosario, also the chairman of the Pag-IBIG Fund Board said in a statement.
