The Pasig River Rehabilitation Commission (PRRC) urged the public to share their unique stories about the Pasig River.

According to PRRC Executive Director Jose Antonio E. Goitia, the public needs to know these stories to inspire them to help in the revival of the Pasig River.

These stories can be sent to the PRRC and those that will be chosen will be posted on the website—

"We need to share these unique stories to let the public know how we value the Pasig River" Goitia added.

At the same time, Goitia said the Commission is determined to bring Pasig River back to life.

This meant putting mechanisms to prevent and to counter acts of "esterorism" in rivers and waterways that lead to Pasig River.

In addition, he said that the PRRC River Warriors were able to divert 21 million kilos of solid waste from the Pasig River.

Due to PRRC's efforts and determination, 17 priority tributaries had been converted into environmental preservation areas.

"The Pasig River was once biologically dead but now the river has gradually backed to life," Goitia added.

According to Goitia, the public should not lose hope for the Pasig River to survive because it has gradually been happening.

In this regard, Goitia called on the public to cooperate with and help the government on the rehabilitation of the Pasig River.

"You are not only helping us but the generations to come, they will realize that Pasig River is a dream that will become a reality," said Goitia.

The Pasig River Rehabilitation Commission (PRRC) on July 17, 2018 rescued and evacuated residents living along the river to temporarily evacuate to a safer area as Typhoon #HenryPH caused flooding in low-lying areas.

PRRC Executive Director Jose Antonio E. Goitia mobilized the river warriors to assist him in the rescue operations while the river patrols assisted in the monitoring of water level in the other areas of Pasig and San Juan Rivers.

Goitia identified the families living along San Juan River, particularly in 
Gumamela St., Barangay Roxas District in Quezon City.

During the inspection conducted by PRRC, Goitia observed the dangerous current of water in San Juan River.

Because of this, Goitia appealed to the residents, who initially refused PRRC’s help, to temporarily evacuate until the heavy rain pours out.

“Sana huwag na po nating hintaying malagay tayo sa panganib bunsod ng pagtaas ng tubig sa ilog.”
Goitia said.

The National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) raised Orange Rainfall Warning in Metro Manila.

RCBC and Rizal Microbank improve lives of farmers as it introduces ePiso in Bukidnon. In photo are (second row, from left) eCurrency Mint country general manager Joey Mendoza, RCBC Strategic Service Delivery head JR Guillergan, RCBC Digital Banking and Operations head Margarita Lopez,  BSP Inclusive Finance Advocacy Office Acting Deputy Director Ellen Joyce Suficienca, BSP Bank Officer V Beverly Ribay, BSP Core Information Technology Specialist Group Manager Perlita Montemayor, Rizal Microbank President Raymundo Roxas and Chief Strategic Management Officer Anatoly Gusto; (first row, from left) Rizal Microbank Independent Director Meliza Agabin, daughter of Omblero, farmers Judy Omblero, Alejandrino Tagupa, Reno Mangcao, Bernardo Baylon, and daughter of Tagupa.

RCBC brings ePiso, the country’s first-ever digital money, closer to farmers and agri-businesses in Valencia City, Bukidnon province, following the success of its pilot launch in Muntinlupa City.

The Yuchengco-led bank is elevating its efforts in support of Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas’ goal of financial inclusion. It taps its subsidiary, Rizal Microbank, to reach out to local microenterprises and small businesses in the agricultural sector and enable them to have better access to financial loans as it introduces RCBC ePiso to farming communities in Bukidnon. 

“Rizal Microbank shares Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas’ vision of financial inclusion. To do this, we are actively supporting our farmers by teaching them how to build their assets and giving them avenues on how they can grow their farms,” said Raymundo Roxas, Rizal Microbank president. “And with ePiso, we are excited to provide our farmers with easy and convenient access to their agri-loans to help them run their businesses more efficiently.”

Through RCBC ePiso, the microbank can now distribute its loan proceeds to its clients by easily loading digital peso in their RCBC ePiso Mobile Wallet. This means farmers can spare themselves the hassle of going to the city to get their loans and instead focus on taking care of their crops.

During the pilot launch, the Bukidnon farmers excitedly tried ePiso and enjoyed cashless purchases with RCBC’s partner stores for agri supplies. 

One of the attendees, Alejandrino Tagupa, shared, “Sobrang laking tulong ang ginawa nila para sa amin. Nagpapasalamat ako ng marami sa Rizal Microbank at ePiso dahil mas dumami ang oportunidad para sa aming araw-araw na pagsasaka.” (What they did was really beneficial to us. I am grateful to Rizal Microbank and ePiso for opening my eyes to the many opportunities for farming.) 

Judy Omblero also expressed gratitude to the bank, “Maraming salamat sa Rizal Microbank sa pagbibigay ng karagdagang puhunan para sa aming mga magsasaka. Salamat din sa ePiso sa pagdadala ng mas maraming paraan para makakuha ng kita.” (Thank you so much to Rizal Microbank for giving additional financing for us, small farmers. Also, thank you ePiso for paving the way for us to get our financing.) 

Enjoying the convenience of ePiso. Farmer Alejandrino Tagupa and daughter try out the ePiso Mobile Wallet App to purchase input supplies from partner merchants during the pilot launch in Bukidnon.

Once ePiso formally becomes available nationwide, farmers can enjoy simpler ways to send money and pay bills to their loved ones anywhere in the country. With just the RCBC ePiso Mobile Wallet app, they can also manage their money and avoid unnecessary expenses. 

“The uninterested, uninclined and unimaginative will not see the agriculture workers and MSMEs as an attractive market for financial services. They will only see the risks and challenges of serving the sector. But those who have internalized the noble role of serving the needs of rural communities, those who can innovate with a solid strategy and purpose, they are the ones who can see and unlock viable opportunities in this underserved market” shared Ellen Joyce Suficienca, Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas Inclusive Finance Advocacy Office Acting Deputy Director. “We hope that the RCBC ePiso can become a showcase of innovative financial solutions for our MSMEs and farmers.”

The RCBC ePiso is one of the ways that the commercial bank is strengthening its commitment to bring progressive and relevant financial services to Filipinos, especially those who belong to the unbanked market. More individuals can experience ePiso as RCBC is set to pilot it in more communities nationwide.
