Since then, the company has gone on to achieve great success thanks to a high demand for its services – Asialink now employs several hundred staff members and thousands of independent loan consultants across 80 branches throughout the Philippines. 2003 was a pivotal year for the company as the South Asialink Finance Corporation, a prior division of Asialink, formed to strategically strengthen the group’s presence in the southern areas of Luzon. Furthermore, its creation factored in the provision of specialised loan products, rather than the spectrum provided by Asialink.

The company’s statistics show that of these 10,386 customers, an estimated 20% did not possess a bank account in their name, and 10% had previously had their loan or financing applications declined by banks.

South Asialink has direct experience with the biases of most banks, as its senior management is comprised of former bank executives and managers who recognised the issue over two decades ago. As such, the company supplies premium financial services to the individuals, businesses, employees, and organisations that need them most. By forging the perfect balance between serving this target market, increasing value for shareholders, and risk management, South Asialink has accomplished a feat failed by numerous large financial institutions. The team that embedded this approach into the company’s structure consists of University of Western Australia, Ateneo Graduate School of Business, and De La Salle University alumni.

Lugtu II, the company benefits from his experience working as the Director of West Point Collection and Business Services, Inc.; Forbes Financial Consultancy Corp.; and ALFC Insurance Agency, Inc.; and many more. The leaders of the business have cultivated a workplace that supports equality, with the rights of women being a main priority. Empowering its team members is something that comes naturally to South Asialink, and it recruits team members without discrimination – in fact, women hold 70% of the organisation’s top positions, such as Deputy COO for Operations, Finance Controller, Treasury Head, Chief Legal Counsel, HR and Training Head, Compliance and Risk Officer, Branch Marketing Group Head, Special Accounts Group Head, etc. As a result, approximately 60% of South Asialink’s team are women. In 2022, the company hopes to continue leading the way for financial institutions in the Philippines, as it serves as a shining example of an ethical business. Further, it plans to continue the record-breaking growth it accomplished in 2021, where the company’s net income grew by an outstanding 234%.

Human life, in essence, is directly related to the health of the world around us, after all. Therefore, it is the PT TOM goal to never let its market forget how much this is the case, championing a mindset of using human ingenuity to serve not just humans, but the denizens of the wider world too, by ensuring that the environment is better preserved going forward. Coconut charcoal’s reputation as a green themed option for combustion includes the ability to make use of the shells of agricultural products.

Secondly, it also leaves almost no residuals, with far less ash created than wood charcoal, ensuring a more satisfying experience with far less mess to clean up at the end of it, as well as the knowledge that material was not reaped through the wonton destruction of natural habitats. With this in mind, it is east to see how PT TOM has become an exemplary element of the biofuel industry, causing many of its heaviest hitters to turn their eyes to the good work it has been doing, and looking forward to only expanding on this reputation in the future.
