Javier (3rd and 4th from left) holding the ceremonial UCPB e-Money card together with representatives of the farmers and fisherfolk cooperatives and local and DA officials during simple turn-over ceremonies in Marawi recently.

Farmers and fisherfolk from Marawi City recently received UCPB e-Money cards containing loan proceeds of government’s Survival and Recovery (SURE) Loan Program to help rebuild their lives after the five-month siege last year.

The Agricultural Credit Policy Council (ACPC), an attached agency of the Department of Agriculture (DA), released the loan to farmers and fisherfolk identified by the DA Regional Office as those who lost their livelihood due to the damage wrought by the Marawi siege last year. Each beneficiary received an e-Money card issued by UCPB, the conduit bank for the loan program. The card carries an initial assistance of P5,000 for the rehabilitation of the livelihood of the affected families.

The loan is interest-free and collateral-free and is payable in three years, the projected period when the farmers and fisherfolk would have fully recovered from the damage caused by the Marawi conflict.

“We thank ACPC for choosing UCPB to be part of this momentous project. We are honored to be part of the rebuilding efforts for our fellow Filipinos in Marawi who showed their resilience and determination to get back to their normal lives after the crisis,” Assistant Vice President/Mindanao Region Head Joel P. Javier said.

The UCPB e-Money card is a reloadable ATM card for different disbursements including loan disbursements, dividend and commission payments, and remittances. The card is equipped with the EMV chip, the global standard in card payment security. It is reloadable up to P100,000 through over-the-counter loading option at UCPB branches.

BSP’s Warning Against the Improper Handling of Philippine Currency

The Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) warns the public that the willful defacement, mutilation, tearing, burning or destruction of Philippine banknotes and coins are punishable by a fine of not more than PHP20,000.00 and/or imprisonment of not more than five years, under Presidential Decree No. 247. It also states that Philippine “banknotes and coins are issued for circulation as medium of exchange and to utilize them for other purposes does not speak well of the due respect and dignity befitting our currency.”

The following are among the prohibited acts of defacement and/or mutilation of Philippine currency:

writing or putting marks on banknotes;
willful tearing, burning, or destruction, in any manner, of Philippine currency;
willful and excessive folding or crumpling that results in a breakdown of the structure and limpness of the banknote;
willfully causing multiple random folds across the entire banknote that toughly affect its visual appearance; and
willfully exposing banknotes or coins to chemicals or other materials resulting in the acceleration of the defacement, destruction, or natural wear and tear of the note or coin.

The public is also discouraged to staple banknotes and/or use adhesives to put on banknotes and coins as these will compromise their structural integrity.

The BSP encourages the public to report any information on improper handling of Philippine currency to the nearest police station or law enforcement agency, for appropriate action, or contact the Currency Management Sector for assistance at Tel. Nos. 988-4833 and 926-5092.
