DBP helps typhoon Yolanda victims

State-owned Development Bank of the Philippines (DBP) is poised to provide more assistance to local government units and business enterprises affected by Supertyphoon Yolanda through its DBP National Rehabilitation Fund for Calamity Stricken Areas.  This is in support of the National Government’s efforts to speed up the economic recovery of the calamity-stricken areas in the Visayas.

With an additional outlay of P10 billion, the facility is intended for the rehabilitation of DBP-financed projects adversely affected by calamities such as those of local and national government agencies.  These funds are also available to existing non-DBP financed projects that will speed up the development of communities and regions adversely affected by calamities.
