At Tanay Rural Bank we proudly trace our roots to the 1950s when we set up with an initial capital of P25,000 and only five people. Over the years. TRB steadily grew and expanded our reach. By 2013 we employed 200 people in five branches-- Tanay, Angono, Antipolo, Taytay, and Cainta. We also set up six other banking offices (OBOs) in Ortigas Center, Masinag, Bacoor in Cavite, and three in Quezon City.
The entry of our strategic partner in 2015, Stem Financial Ltd. (Stemfin), revitalized the bank in its mission of financial inclusion and allowed us to extend our services to other areas in the country. We now employ 350 personnel.
We have opened branches in Ortigas Center, San Fernando in Pampanga, and Lipa City in Batangas. OBOs are also opened in Makati, Sta. Rosa in Laguna, Malolos in Bulacan, Angeles in Pampanga, and Batangas City.
With Stemfin's support, TRB has become strongly positioned to address the financing needs of entrepreneurs, particularly in the largely under-served micro, small, and medium enterprises sector (MSME). Stemfin and TRB expect the MSME sector to increase its already significant role in the economy, with great expectations for growth in the years to come. Meanwhile, we continue to broaden our offering to individuals with loans to Doctors, Seamen, and OFWs and loans for the purchase of cars and trucks, among others.
