Pag-ibig Fund has started to decentralize its services to reach out more member-borrowers. From 28 branches, it has grown to 123 branches, making Pag-ibig services accessible even to those living in far areas. The agency, likewise, improved its collection efficiency by working with third-party agents (TPAs) such as MLhuillier. Moti said they have joined other institutions in empowering neighborhood collecting agents to

make payments more convenient and more efficient for borrowers. As of June, Pag-IBIG Fund’s collection efficiency reached 90.2 percent corporate-wide, and 87.44 percent in Visayas. Its non-performing loans ratio went down to a single-digit level of 9.8 percent for the whole agency and 12.56 percent in Visayas. (KOC)
