We've been posting quite a bit of a fast pace this year 2012 as we wanted to reach out to Filipinos living not just in the Philippines but also around the world as well as those woring abroad. We want to let them all know that there is an option for emergencies and immediate needs and that is to apply for Loans in the Philippines.


In relation to this, we aim to give relevant information regarding the differnty loans that a Pinoy may apply for whether in the Philippines or in accredited agencies in the country where they are currently working or residing. Here's a catch for SSS salary loan and who may apply or who qualifies to apply for it. Details taken from the official Social Security System website at sss.gov.ph.
