More than one million pesos is earmarked by Home Credit Philippines, a consumer finance tech company, to aid victims of super typhoon Odette that devastated large portions of Visayas and Mindanao a few days before Christmas.
This amount will be coursed through its partner agencies for on-ground assistance distribution.
“We are one with our kababayans who are affected by the typhoon,” says Sheila Paul, Home Credit Philippines’ Chief Marketing Officer. “We will get through this challenge together,” she adds.
In addition, Home Credit has allocated budget to provide financial assistance to its affected employees based in the southern provinces that have been in the path of the typhoon. It has called for an internal donation drive and the amount raised will be matched by the company to pool fund for Odette’s victims among its employees.
“We continue to monitor the situation of our employees and we are positioned to provide them assistance as soon as possible,” says Alpha Omega Aquino, the company’s Chief People Officer.
Home Credit Philippines has already served over 8 million Filipinos, empowering them to afford their needs through various consumer finance products.
