LANDBANK installs first-ever ATM in remote La Union town

BAGULIN, La Union – The Land Bank of the Philippines (LANDBANK) recently installed the very first automated teller machine (ATM) in this fifth-class municipality to help promote inclusive growth.

Located at the Bagulin Municipal Hall in Barangay Suyo, the new LANDBANK offsite ATM will make banking services more accessible, convenient, and safe for government employees, pensioners, beneficiaries of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), and other clients from the town’s 10 barangays, who previously needed to travel to the neighboring town of Naguilian to access ATM services.
