Agricultural Bank of the Philippines, Inc. (“ABP”, the “Company”), is a specialized rural bank established in 1997 in Dasmariñas, Cavite, that is primarily focused on providing banking services to the agricultural sector and entrepreneurial customers. ABP’s principal banking products and services include agricultural and small business loans, consumer loans, deposit products, community banking, and cash management solutions among other services. Such products are offered to a wide range of customers, including consumers, mid-market corporates and SMEs (small- and medium-sized enterprises).


ABP (formerly the Central Equity Rural Bank) is committed in promoting food sufficiency in the Philippines by dedicating our corporate resources in support of farming activities throughout the country. It provides not only financing but also technology transfer, end-product marketing assistance, and education to farmers / livestock-raisers /fishpond operators /market vendors, and start-up food manufacturers. ABP’s lending emphasis has transitioned from predominantly serving the export-oriented industries and real-estate developers located in the CALABARZON into being intrinsically focused in agriculture. ABP realizes that the growing population of the Philippines would require a greater production of food under the present reality of global food shortage brought about climate change.
