Company Background

WRB was incorporated by a small group of women with a shared vision, shared mission and shared responsibility. The bank was conceived to bring into the mainstream of rural banking a social reform agenda. This agenda shall enable poverty-strapped women to have access to financial services and engage in profitable economic activities. The concept gave rise to a rural bank with a special mission. This mission is to make rural banking system contribute towards the socioeconomic upliftment and empowerment of women in the countryside.

Indeed, WRB envisions taking part in bringing rural societies closer to their aspirations for life of dignity, harmony, peace and equity for all women and men. To pursue their shared vision and shared mission, the incorporators also took a shared responsibility of a loan from a foreign creditor who supported WRB’s affirmative action for rural women. The loan enabled the bank to operate with adequate funds since 1998. Shared responsibility naturally applies to the Board of Directors who is responsible for direction setting and policy formulations for a sound and profitable bank.

The bank was incorporated on 16 September 1997 and given Certificate of Authority to operate as a rural bank by BSP on 19 February 1998. Having been duly authorized, WRB started operations on 27 February 1998 in Rosario, Batangas.
