Security Bank and AFFI Expo highlights Franchise Opportunities for SMEs

Security Bank and the Association of Filipino Franchisers, Inc. (AFFI) held the 17th Franchise and  Business Expo at the World Trade Center in Pasay City.  With over a hundred booth exhibitors that participated and several talks conducted, this annual event gave the public the opportunity to explore the world of franchising and learn about Security Bank’s exclusive loan offerings.

During the three-day event, SMEs were able to showcase their products and services to other potential franchisees. For the first time this year, Security Bank led the Business Journey talks on “Banking for Business.” During these pocket sessions, the Bank discussed options to finance a business through its Business Loan products and shared ways to efficiently streamline business processes using DigiBanker. This award-winning cash management platform can help significantly reduce operational costs by automating the payment and collection processes.  Currently, it is being utilized by top companies from various industries such as manufacturing and retail.

Through the recently forged partnership between AFFI and Security Bank, existing franchisee business owners are given special rates to help grow and expand their business with the Business Express Loan (terms and conditions apply).  More information about this special offer is available at

“Our clients’ success is our success.  Through our relationship with AFFI, we will be able to partner with more SME business owners and help them achieve their financial goals.  We will be taking on a more active role in supporting our homegrown brands.  Offering exclusive loan products to AFFI and its members is just the beginning,” said Security Bank President & CEO Alfonso L. Salcedo, Jr.

Security Bank and AFFI also organize pocket events about franchising and entrepreneurship which are open to the public. The “Usapang Franchise” sessions are held every month at Security Bank’s Discovery Hub located at its Main Office Branch, Ayala Avenue, Makati City.  For more details, interested attendees may visit Security Bank’s Facebook page.
