About LifeBank Foundation

LifeBank Microfinance Foundation is a non-profit organisation that provides Microfinance to individuals, families, and communities throughout the Philippines. It is a major partner in social programmes designed to empower its members and society as a whole through a culture of caring and sharing.

Its aim is to “break the chains of poverty” by promoting sustainable growth in rural and urban areas through a range of social programmes, providing access to credit to enterprising individuals to enable them to create opportunities for development and employment. It seeks to partner with like-minded institutions to respond to the needs of its clients, working together for the benefit of those in poverty. 

It opened its first branch in Iloilo in 2003. By 2005 it had expanded its operations beyond Panay, with its 100th branch – in Tagum City – opening the following year. As of 2022 it continues to open new branches to bring its unique social programmes to more and more communities across the country, establishing itself as an important and value partner for social change.
