MANILA, Philippines  —Asialink Finance Corp. released more than P12.6 billion in loans in 2023 and expects 2024 to be even better as it grows its customer base and resources.

The company said the amount of loans it released grew month after month in 2023 as it signed up more small and medium companies that need funds to finance their growing businesses.

It said it had close to 29,500 new borrowers as 2023 drew to a close.


To serve these customers, Asialink forged partnerships with some of the Philippines’ largest banks and investment firms.


It raised P2 billion from a corporate notes facility with RCBC, Security Bank, EastWest Bank, Philippine Bank of Communications and Unionbank as noteholders arranged by RCBC Capital and SB Capital.

It also raised P1 billion from Yuanta Saving Bank and the state-run Small Business Corp.

New window for SMEs

These deals are now opening up a new window to small and medium companies with little to no access
to traditional sources of funding.
