UnionBank also maximized the opportunity to introduce UnionBank GlobalLinker, a free digital platform for micro, small, and medium enterprises. UnionBank GlobalLinker advocate Marianne Urbano did a walk-through of the platform to emphasize its free business tools and discounted offers for the members of the platform.
“Sobrang nagustuhan ko ‘yung platform kasi andito na lahat at libre pa. (I really like the platform because everything [that a business needs] is already there and it’s free.),” shared Lorna Chavez, Key Account Officer of Langhoff.
