CBLIC continues commitment to serve the unserved

Country Bankers Life Insurance Corporation (CBLIC)
Country Bankers Life Insurance Corporation (CBLIC) was established out of the need to cater to an unserved segment of the insurance market.

Simple, straightforward optionsCBLIC continues commitment to serve the unserved

Founded by Jose E. Desiderio, Sr. on March 28, 1965, CBLIC responded to the needs of small and medium business entrepreneurs, farmers, fishermen, and public school teachers in the rural areas, a market that had been untapped in the 1960s.

Today, with 55 strong years as a reliable insurer, CBLIC remains true to its promise to give Filipinos simple, straightforward, and non-intimidating insurance options in the countryside through partner banks.

“We are committed to the needs of our clients. We are proud to share our humble success with everyone who has contributed to the growth of CBLIC for over five decades, especially our clients in the countryside,” says Geraldine Desiderio-Garcia, CBLIC senior vice president and general manager.

CBLIC’s management has been working hard to improve its products and serve their clients better, forging to solidify its position as the most affordable insurer-of-choice.  Its micro-insurance products, for instance, provide disadvantaged Filipinos access to financial support during times of catastrophe and financial distress.

“We will continue to deliver what we promise to give by coming up with affordable, simple and relevant insurance products like CB Kalinga, our micro-insurance product, and Alalay sa Buhay, one of the most affordable term insurance packages in the market,” says Ms. Garcia.

Country Bankers Insurance Group (CBIG) has two subsidiaries: Country Bankers Life Insurance Corporation (CBLIC), a life insurance provider that has been in service for 55 years, and Country Bankers Insurance Corporation (CBIC), a non-life insurance company that provides motor vehicle, personal accident, fire insurance, among others.

CBLIC’s slogan “Ito ang Alalay Ko sa Buhay,” and CBIC’s “Tulong na Maaasahan” have endeared them to a growing number of clientele as they stay true to their promise of protecting disadvantaged Filipinos in times when they need help most.

For inquiries on life and nonlife insurance products, visit Country Bankers Centre at 648 T.M. Kalaw Avenue, Ermita, Manila or call 8523-8611 for life and 8524-0621 for nonlife.

Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the flawless of them all?

According to a gender difference study by the University of Texas at Austin, women are more prone to low self-esteem compared to men . Similar studies also show that girls believe that they are generally not good enough, especially when it comes to their appearance. Cultural expectations, external pressures, and social media are just some that contribute to someone being hypercritical of themselves.

Hundreds of evacuees affected by the eruption of the Taal Volcano became beneficiaries of the relief operations organized recently by top LPG solutions provider Solane.  Food, cooking equipment, and Solane LPG were generously provided to evacuees who were able to use the Solane LPG cooking stations set up by volunteers from the company.

Solane conducted a series of relief operations in various evacuation sites. At the Batangas Sports Complex, a team of Solane volunteers put up a cooking station to offer noodles and coffee to at least 3000 estimated evacuees. At the Batangas Provincial Capitol where more than 700 evacuees stayed, the Batangas Divers Association partnered with Solane to provide LPGs for their cooking station. Meanwhile, in Barangay San Jose, Batangas, Solane donated five sets of stove and LPGs to at least 900 evacuees. 
The Taal relief operation is one of the several outreach initiatives of Solane in Batangas. Solane also regularly holds community drives such as barangay health initiatives, sports tournaments to promote a healthier lifestyle and good camaraderie, and Balik Eskwela to provide educational materials and school equipment to public schools.
