Development Bank of the Philippines  (DBP)  -  75th Anniversary

75 Years of Banking for the Country

State-owned Development Bank of the Philippines (DBP) marks its historic 75th anniversary firmly positioned as the nation’s catalyst for sustainable growth. The bank has been a steadfast ally of the Filipino people in their quest for a comfortable life enriched by financial security, work-life balance, orderly communities, and an empowered government.

DBP remains primed to channel resources to key sectors including infrastructure and logistics, social services, entrepreneurship, and the environment to drive growth in the face of shifting global challenges.

In 2021, the Rehabilitation Support Program on Severe Events (DBP RESPONSE) encouraged private business and public institutions to resume operations and boost the government’s national recovery program in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. DBP granted P8.5-billion in funding support to 90 public and private institutions. Thirty borrowers were granted new loans totaling almost P4.8-billion. Under the DBP RESPONSE – MSME RECOVERY sub-program, P3.7-billion in funding assistance was granted to 60 borrowers.
