It is time to picture the Canlaon City of today in its proper

perspective, by viewing it according to its noble goals and objectives,

which are formulated towards attaining a transformation from what she

has done in the past, towards what she can do at the present, in

garnering a dependable socio-economic image specifically geared towards

development. With the inclusion of Canlaon City in the third batch of

CDS (city development strategy) cities, its envisioned plan is to craft a

well formulated tool for planning and development which will be truly

responsive to the demands of the future.

As local government gains experience in managing growth and

change, its institutional capability improves considerably. The present

investments from both public and private sectors have greatly improved

the quality of service and utilities made available to the constituents.

This is expected to raise the level of the publics well being, and foster

social change and development.

It has been noted, however, that a city without a bank is not

complete. After the closure of the Rural Bank of Canlaon in September

1986, most financial transactions have ended up being made outside of

Canlaon, thereby pulling out cash for circulation and putting it into
nearby cities with banking institutions, instead of circulating the

resources within the area. It is evident that Canlaon is generating income

but other municipalities/cities are gaining from the proceeds of it.

Based on an analysis of the interviews conducted, mismanagement

could be pinpointed as one of the reasons why RB Canlaon closed after

approximately 5 years of operation. Unsecured loans to farmers without

proper assessment or appraisal of the area, without follow ups and

assistance, led to a majority of loans defaulted upon and giving rise to

the sentiment occasionally voiced that the people didnt like to pay back

their loans. No other banks wanted to buy Rural Bank of Canlaon since

the CB required that any sale would also have to include assuming the

Rural Banks previous accountability with Central Bank which amounts

to approximately P80 million.

We recommend that in order to avoid repeating the mistakes of RB

Canlaon, DCDB Canlaon branch should: maintain a high liquidity ratio

especially during its first 3 years of operation, carefully screen all loan

applicants to ensure their capability to pay, monitor its loan portfolio

constantly with regard to non performing loans, invest in a varied

portfolio such as t-bills and other government securities, and only grant

loans which are backed up by sufficient collateral.

In order to foster the goals of the city towards development for a

larger swathe of the community, it is imperative that a financial

institution with integrity, supply much needed financial services to the

local population from within the locality. This fits right in with the vision

of Dumaguete City Development Bank which in its 26 years of operation

has remained a responsible partner in serving the local and neighboring

Visayas and Mindanao business communities and has also attained the

highest public trust.

In the CDS plan for the year 2007, one of the strategies of Canlaon

City is the development of commercial and industrial growth centers

outside the present city center.

As the study team proposes a suitable location that is in the

Uptown area, this will further coincide with the Citys plans for

development. The proposed location is in the Uptown area, which is

outside the city center. The land is beside the City Mayors residence,

fronting the market for the regions high-value crops, such as lettuce,

cabbage, cauliflower, and others. However, worth noting is the statement

of the landowner explaining that this was an excellent location due to the

proximity to the Mayors residence and the security provided at that


This study aims to determine the feasibility of establishing a

branch of Dumaguete City Development Bank in Canlaon City.

This study also aims to identify which products and services of a

bank the prospective market would like to avail of.

It also seeks to determine the size of the prospective market and

aspects related to the success of the bank.


The main focus of this project study is the feasibility of the

proposed branch of DCDB in Canlaon City. Like most business

proposals, feasibility criteria have major aspects that need to be

considered in arriving at final conclusions and recommendations. The

aspects that need to be factored into this study are divided into

marketing, organization and management; the technical, financial, socio-

economic aspects, and legal aspects.

Responses to the questionnaire were limited to employed residents

of Canlaon City, both government and non-government, as well as small

and medium business establishments. These were considered the target

market as they are the most likely users of the banks services both as

depositors and loan makers as they possess sufficient income to save

and also have the capability to repay loans taken. Only those who were

identified as part of the target market were considered and given the

chance to answer the questionnaires regarding the establishment of the



The intention of this study is to aid, guide, and assist the

proponent in determining whether or not to establish the business. This

study would help the DCDB Board of Directors in determining the

viability of establishing a branch in Canlaon City.


A market survey was conducted to determine the market demand

for the proposed project.

An analysis of the market demand is important in order to

determine if the target market will patronize the proposed project.

To draw a conclusion for its market demand, the researchers first

determined who the target markets were. The target markets identified
were the employed residents of Canlaon City and small and medium

business establishments.

Employed residents refer to the Citys labor force and are

categorized as follows: government, private and self-employed

individuals. In order to define the population of these markets, the

researchers requested assistance from the City Planning Office of

Canlaon, obtaining and reviewing documents showing the total number

of employed residents of that city.

The sample size was determined using Slovins Formula.

Questionnaires were distributed to respondents based on the computed

sample size. After retrieving the questionnaires, the responses were

tallied and graphed. These were then analyzed and interpreted.

The researchers also conducted interviews with key people whose

inputs were essential to the feasibility study. Please see the section on

Market Feasibility regarding the highlights of the interviews.


There are several factors considered from the different aspects of

the study:

The demand for a bank and the willingness of the respondents to

patronize the products and services of the proposed project were the

factors used in determining the feasibility of the market study.

The factors considered in determining the technical feasibility of

the project were the location of the building, accessibility to the target
market, layout and human resources required, equipment costs, and

cost of land.

The evaluation of the financial feasibility was done through the

financial projections.

The socio-economic aspect of the project considered its economic

contributions and other benefits to the City and the society as a whole.

The name of the proposed project is Dumaguete City Development

Bank (DCDB), Canlaon Branch, Negros Oriental.


The DCDB Canlaon Branch will be located in Uptown Barangay

Mabigo, Canlaon City. Its main office or head office is located at the

corner of Dr. V. Locsin Street and Cervantes Street, Dumaguete City.

Canlaon City, situated on the eastern side of Mt. Kanlaon, in the

province of Negros Oriental, is politically bound on the north by San

Carlos, Province of Negros Occidental; on the east by Vallehermoso,

Province of Negros Oriental; on the west by the Municipalities of La

Castellana and Pontevedra, Province of Negros Occidental; and on the

south by the Municipality of Guihulngan, Province of Negros Oriental.

The city is strategically situated nine-and-a-half (9.5) kilometers

from the foot of Mount Kanlaon an active volcano in Negros Island,

bearing geographic location at 10 24.7 North Latitude, 23 7 East


The City is geographically divided into three sectors: Downtown,

Midtown/City Center, and Uptown. The City Center is 38 kilometers

away from San Carlos City, Negros Occidental; 50 kilometers from

Guihulngan City; 20 kilometers from Vallehermoso; 102 kilometers from

Bacolod City, the capital of Negros Occidental (taking the cross-island

country road traversing Negros Occidental and Negros Oriental via

Canlaon City) and 166 kilometers from Dumaguete City, the capital of

Negros Oriental.

It takes three hours to Dumaguete City; two-and-a-half hours from

Bacolod City via La Castellana; and a four- to five-hour trip from Cebu

City by land and sea transport via San Carlos City.

The main industries of Canlaon city are Rice production with a

total of 3,289 hectares, and sugarcane production with a total of 3,238

hectares out of a total area devoted to Agriculture of 9,783 hectares. The

remaining area produces a mix of corn, vegetables, and livestock. These

figures are cited from the Canlaon City CDS 2007.

Further information was gathered from an interview with Mr.

Roderick Schon. He volunteered that there are 4 major and traditional

sugarcane planters in the area. He mentioned the Schon farm, Valmayor

Hermanos, Jalandoni farm, and the Amador farm. Another major

property holder especially around the mabigo barrangay is the Bautista


These major planters each have total land areas of between 120 to

130 planted hectares.

The rice growers on the other hand are composed of numerous

smaller lot holders each holding between 20 to 30 hectares.

Apart from these planters and farmers there are also a few

businessmen in the community who run hardware shops, a mini grocery

and restaurant as well as branches of known motorcycle distributors

such as RUSI and Du Ek Sam. Some of the more prominent business

men/women are: Cecil Canada, Julius Amador, and the Jalandonis.

The lot under consideration for the proposed DCDB bank branch

site is located on Aquino Street, beside the present mayors residence,

fronting the Uptown market complex. The added security is an extra

feature of this location. Other advantages of this location are: the lot is

offered at market value price, the lot has good drainage and a first class

cement barrangay road connecting the lot to the city, the Uptown market

complex which faces it is the trading area for vegetables and livestock

and is a bustling commercial hub, and this location is identified in the

CDS strategies for economic development as an area targeted for

economic growth.


Incorporated July 1980 by Julio 0. Sy, Lourdes M. Calumpang,

Tita R. Sung, Jose E. Romero, Jr. and Gregorio E. Uymatiao, Sr., the

Dumaguete City Development Bank was registered with the Securities

and Exchange Commission. on October 17, 1980. The Central Bank of

the Philippines granted DCDB authority to operate as a private

development bank and formally started operations in Dumaguete City,

Negros Oriental. In July 1990, DCBD established its first branch in the

Municipality of Valencia, Bukidnon Province.

On August 8, 1992, the bank acquired the Rural Bank of Sibulan

(Negros Oriental), Inc. On August 27, 1993, a second branch in the

Municipality of Quezon, Bukidnon Province formally started operations.

On October 16, 1993, the Lapu-Lapu City branch was its third branch.

November 10, 1993, the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas granted the bank

authority to accept demand deposits. On November 16, 1994,

computerization of branches Current Account/Savings Account began.

Today DCDB Canlaon City branch Negros Oriental is the next

target of DCDB incorporators for the expansion of the bank. The mission

of Canlaon city today is to

Sustain Canlaon City's position as a special growth center of

Northern Negros through the protection of its environmentally critical
area system, maximize the output of its agricultural, commercial,
infrastructure, transport, agro-industrial and eco-tourism resources and
promote massive livelihood initiatives in the rural areas for sustainable

The proponent recognizes the potential of Canlaon City in terms of

its resources and the need for a bank in that area. The project would

fulfill, in part, DCDBs mission to the community to be a responsible

partner in the countryside economic growth and development, benefiting

the community and contributing to the development of the city as well.


Establishing a DCDB branch in Canlaon, a city rich in agricultural

resources, will provide the community with the banking and other

financial services the community needs. Accomplishing this would

contribute to the proponents vision to become the leading development

bank in the Visayas-Mindanao region.

A development banks objectives may be organized as follows:

(1) Accumulating the savings of depositors and investing them,

together with capital loans secured by bonds, mortgages in real estate

and insured improvements thereon, chattel mortgage, bonds and other

forms of security or in loans for personal or household finance, whether

secured or unsecured, or in financing for homebuilding and home

development; in readily marketable and debt securities; in commercial

papers and accounts receivables, drafts, bills of exchange, acceptances

or notes arising out of commercial transactions; and in such other

investments and loans which the Monetary Board may determine as

necessary in the furtherance of national economic objectives;

(2) Providing short-term working capital, medium- and long-term

financing, to businesses engaged in agriculture, services, industry and

housing; and

(3) Providing diversified financial and allied services for its chosen

market and constituencies especially for small and medium enterprises

and individuals.



A project feasibility study about the proposed project was

conducted. After determining the viability of the project, the proposal

will be forwarded to the Board of Directors of DCDB for review and

approval. Land acquisition and the construction of the building will

follow after compliance with the necessary requirements (please refer

to Appendix F). Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas prerequisites necessary in

establishing a branch should be complied with at this time. After all

the legal requirements have been met, and after the authority to

establish a branch has been given, the branch shall be opened within

six months from the date of approval. The target date the researchers

are suggesting is August 8, 2008 for the obvious reason that round

numbers for the Chinese origin is believed to be a lucky number that

could bring good fortune and good luck.


The establishment of the proposed branch of DCDB in

Canlaon City will be financed solely from the capital funds of the

Dumaguete City Development Bank. On the basis of the information

supplied by the Vice President, the amount for the purchase of the lot

and the construction of the building shall be taken from existing

funds of the bank that have been earmarked for this purpose. The

DCDB Board of Directors has the intention of purchasing the land

and constructing a building that the DCDB Canlaon branch will




In the survey conducted by the group, it was ascertained

that one of the reasons that there is a need for a banking institution

in Canlaon City is due to the absence of certain financial services in

the city such as: savings deposits, checking accounts, commercial

loans and other services that a bank normally provides. The

residents and the members of the local government of the city have

expressed their desire for a bank and emphasized the importance

and role of a bank in their city. It was also determined that there

are a number of probable clients, 99 percent of the respondents to

be exact, who would be willing to avail of the products and services

that the DCDB Canlaon branch will offer.

City Treasurer Ma. Luisa L. Luza, informed us of the

possibility of using the bank as a depository for all the financial

transactions of the government, both local and national. The

quarterly Internal Revenue Allotment, or IRA of Canlaon City for

2007 is P44,574,756.00. The monthly operating expense of the local

government is P6,458,090.00.

According to City Financial Analyst Rowena F. Oralde, if a

bank would be established, she would recommend that all salary

transactions go through the bank instead of her preparing the

necessary documents in order to withdraw the amount from San

Carlos and transporting the said amount back to Canlaon. The total

monthly salary transactions for regular government employees of the

city is P3,107,628.76.

An interview was also conducted with Ms. Doris Flores, the

City Administrator of Canlaon. Ms. Flores described the people of

Canlaon as hardworking and resilient. When asked about the state

of the Citys peace and order, she stated that said aspect was well

maintained. The internal revenue allotment (IRA) of Canlaon as

mandated by law is deposited with the Development Bank of the

Philippines (DBP) in San Carlos City and other accounts are

maintained with Landbank and the Philippine National Bank (PNB).

The requirement that the Government deposit its money in a

government bank presupposes that there is a government bank in

the immediate area but in the absence of such the government may

deposit its IRA in any private bank in the locality for convenience as

mentioned in Chapter four of R.A. 7906.

According to Ms. Flores, attempts had been made to attract

banks to establish branches in Canlaon City. A resolution to this

end had previously been passed. However, no bank responded, it

was believed, because of security reasons.

If the proponent decides to open a branch in Canlaon, Ms.

Flores said that the City would provide the security services needed

by the bank branch and that she will talk with the Mayor regarding

this. She added that the City has continuity of plans, negating any

concern regarding a change in the administration. She said, We

really need a bank, we would be very happy if this would push

through, we will support them if they need equity for construction.

We will place our local revenues and income in DCDB.

Aside from security concerns, former Councilor Hernani

Blanco, who is now part of the Mayors policy determining body,

stated that the road conditions were the main problem banks did

not want to open a branch in Canlaon. This problem is no longer of

concern as the city government has embarked on an infrastructure

improvement program and as a result many farm-to-market roads

have been concretized and the national highway connecting the city

has also been improved.

Regarding the security concerns Blanco opined They dont

need to worrywe have two battalions: the 11 th and 12th Infantry

Brigade assigned in Canlaon. Peace and order situation is ok now.

This is backed up by a city crime rate of .05 percent as seen in the

CDS of 2007.

The technical aspect of the study shows that the project is

feasible because of certain factors.

The accessibility of the location is convenient to residents

and customers of the bank as it is within a 2 kilometers of the city

center. There is ample parking as the lot fronts the Uptown market

and also the lot is of a substantial size that a parking lot may be

incorporated into the design.

It is also feasible considering that the branch structure is

based on an existing DCDB branch (Valencia branch) and initial

human resource requirements are minimal.

The building and lot will be purchased by the bank and will

be owned by the bank. The cost of the lot is priced competitively

based on comparisons with the other prospective sites that were

identified. The lot is priced at 1,500 pesos per square meter and the

recommendation is to buy a 500 square meter lot. The building will

cover 150 square meters initially with the capacity to add a second

story, and will cost approximately 2,000,000 pesos.

The project is deemed viable because of the availability of

appropriate material and human resources of DCDB.

The description of products and services was based on

existing products and services offered by DCDB head office and

other branches. Based on the Agri Agra Law (PD 717), 25 percent of

the banks loanable funds shall be allocated for agricultural credit.

Another consideration is the established bank operations

policies and procedures which are applicable to the Canlaon branch

without further modification.


The financial study was made based on the following


Operational Assumptions

a) The branch will start its operation on August 8, 2008

b) Bank hours will be from 9:00am to 3:00pm

c) Employees will work till 8:00am to 5:00pm with 1 hour lunch


d) The bank will be open on weekdays and be closed on all public

and special holidays.

e) Cut- off for clearance of cheques will be 11:30am to allow for

travel time to BPI San Carlos whose cut off time is 1:00pm.
f) Excess funds will be deposited with BPI- San Carlos or loaned

to DCDB head office at a rate of 9 percent. A portion may be

invested in government securities depending upon the approval

of the board of directors and in accordance with the rules and

regulations of the monetary board regarding investments.

g) Maximum of 10 percent current/saving deposits will be kept as

cash in vault

h) Company will procure a motorcycle for bank use.

i) Main office will provide a service vehicle for branch managers


j) There will be a provision of an ATM machine in the bank layout

but it will not be installed in the first year of operation, until the

bank will be financially stable to purchase one.

k) All policies and regulations of the Department of Labor and

Employment (DOLE) will be complied with.

l) All policies, rules and regulations of the DCDB main office will

apply to the branch office.

m) The first branch manager will be an officer from DCDB main


n) Rank and file staff will be recruited from qualified residents of


Revenue Assumptions
a) Agricultural loans will have an interest rate of 15-18 percent, as

prescribed by DCDB bank policy and the Agri-Agra Law.

b) Commercial loans will have an interest rate of 15-18 percent,

prescribed by DCDB bank policy and the BSP.

c.) Excess funds will be loaned to DCDB main branch at the rate of

9 percent per annum.

Expense Assumptions

a) The salary of the bank branch employees will have a three

percent merit increase every year.

b) The utility expense will increase according to current market


c) Bank premises, furniture, fixtures and equipment are carried at

acquisition cost or construction cost less depreciation

and impairment losses.

Depreciation is computed on the straight-line basis over the

estimated useful lives of the assets as follows:

Buildings 40 years

Furniture, fixtures and equipment 1-10 years

Leasehold improvements are amortized over the terms of the

related leases or the useful lives of the improvements whichever is


The project will be consistent with Canlaons economic

expansion and growth since DCDB supports the Philippine

Countryside Development Program wherein the bank strives to be

known as a Responsible Partner for Growth in the local business


The branch should focus on getting the local government

unit as a main customer; the City Administrator stated the Citys

willingness to assist in this regard with a board resolution. The city

treasury and accounting office have also expressed their anticipation

for the establishment of a bank in the City. This would eliminate the

time required and the safety concerns inherent in traveling to and

from San Carlos and other banking institutions to conduct the Citys

banking business. The local government employees and the teachers

and employees of the various schools in the area would be able to

use these banking services, forgoing the inconvenience of having to

cash a check within the city or going to San Carlos to do the same.

The presence of a bank in Canlaon will also have a ripple

effect on the economy of the area because by providing loans for

agricultural improvement or post harvest facilities, or commercial

loans for the start up of new businesses such as a supermarket or a

department store the standard of living of the residents will improve.

More jobs will be made available and more services will also be

accessible to the residents of Canlaon.


The management structure adopted by the project is based on

the existing management structure of existing DCDB branch offices.

This provides for a bank manager, a cashier, an accountant, an

accounting assistant, a loan processor, one teller, and a


The research project started with the identification of the

proponent and the prospect study. On July 26, 2007, soon after the

proponent, Dumaguete City Development Bank, and the study to be

undertaken was identified, the group began formulating the survey

questionnaire. This took one week. The formal distribution of survey

questionnaires began on the first week of August, and lasted for three

weeks. The researchers then tallied the results during the second and

third weeks. After tallying the results, the group commenced analyzing

the collected data and drafting the feasibility study. The researchers

collected the information necessary to accomplish the project during the

fourth and fifth weeks. The period from August 13 to September 3 was

used to focus on the Technical and Financial Study of the project.

Finally, the last week of the study was spent on encoding and reviewing

of the completed draft. The study ended on September 7, 2007.

Canlaon City Branch, Negros Oriental. As defined in Republic Act No.

8791 The General Banking Law of 2000, banks shall refer to entities

universal banks, commercial banks, rural banks, cooperative banks and

thrift banks.

Republic Act No. 7906 also known as the Thrift Banks Act of

1995 refers thrift banks to include savings and mortgage banks, private

development banks, and stock savings and loans associations organized

under existing laws.

other fixed installations, conservation, enlargement or improvement of

productive properties and real estate mortgage loans for: (a) the

construction, acquisition, expansion or improvement of rural and urban

properties; (b) the refinancing of similar loans and mortgages; and (c)

such other purposes as may be authorized by the Monetary Board.

A thrift bank shall coordinate the amounts and maturities of its

certificates with those of its loans, so as to ensure adequate cash receipts

for the payment of principal and interest at the time they become due.

The bank shall accept its own certificates at least at the actual price of

issue, in any prepayment of loans which mortgage or chattel mortgage

debtors may wish to make: Provided, That the date of maturity of the

certificates is not later than the date on which the payment would

otherwise become due, in the absence of the aforesaid prepayment

deductions to the thrift bank concerned, and collect such reasonable fee

for his services

(12) Extend credit against the security of jewelry, precious stones

The target markets of the proposed project are the local

government of Canlaon City, the employed residents of Canlaon City and

nearby municipalities and the small and medium business

establishments. Employed residents refer to the labor force of the city

and are categorized as: government, private and self-employed


Other Target Markets identified are the large scale planters and

different businessmen in the community who would most likely avail of



The survey showed that 60 percent of the respondents have an

existing bank account. Thirty-six percent do not patronize any banking

institution. Four percent did not answer the question. To determine the
demand for the business, the data gathered, as shown in Figure 12

shows 99 percent in favor of DCDB opening a branch in Canlaon City

and 99 percent ready to avail of its products and services. One percent

do not favor the project.

Canlaon City is a third class city in the province of Negros

Oriental, Philippines. According to the 2000 census, it has a population

of 46,548 people in 9,302 households.

The financial resources of the local government of Canlaon for the

year 2007 are broken down as follows:

Revenue per Month

Taxes, Licenses, Permits P14,224,342.32

National Government Subsidiaries P 14,858,252.00

Other Sources P 1,233,522.76

In Negros Oriental, the government plans to concentrate on the

development of the provinces geothermal resources. It is building an

additional 20-megawatt power plant at Palinpinon II, and another 40-

megawatt power facility in Northern Negros near Canlaon City.

As mentioned in the project description, the additional powers of a

thrift bank is to act as an official depository of national agencies and of

municipal, city or provincial funds in the municipality, city or province

where the thrift bank is located, subject to such guidelines as may be

established by the Monetary Board. The government sector would be the

major client of the prospective bank. The list of clients would include

teachers of the various schools in the area, employees of privately-owned

businesses, and small and medium enterprises.

For the government clients and other businesses, payroll can be

facilitated through the bank, negating the need for transacting business

in San Carlos or elsewhere. Currently, Canlaon employees have to travel

to San Carlos City, Negros Occidental, to collect their salary, cash their

cheques, or have them cashed at certain establishments in Canlaon for a


At present, these resources are not put to use productively in

Canlaon City; the employees tend to do their shopping in San Carlos City

since they are already there. The market opportunities created by a

bank branch in Canlaon City for small to medium businesses make this

project viable.

Although there are no existing banking institutions in Canlaon

City, there are other financial institutions that more or less provide

similar services. There are three pawnshops: Palawan Pawnshop,

Chamar Pawnshop, and Cebuana Lhullier which also provides the

service of pera padala, and Western Union. There is one lending

investor, AAA Agency, which is based in San Carlos City. Credit

cooperatives also accommodate loans, and among the three biggest in

Canlaon are the Bucalan Multipurpose Credit Cooperative, Canlaon City

Government Employees Credit Cooperative and Canlaon City

Multipurpose Development Credit Cooperative. As shown in Figure 15,

47.9 percent of the respondents avail their loans from SSS/GSIS, 22.9

percent from Credit Cooperatives, 20.2 percent from pawnshops, 7.3

percent from informal lending and 1.7 percent from other institutions.

And as shown in Figure 8, 60 percent of the respondents have existing

bank accounts.

Based on the survey conducted, the respondents avail of the

services of the institutions mentioned above.


In determining the demand and the supply for financial services of

the proposed project, the researchers concluded that there is a high

demand for a bank in Canlaon City. The lack of a bank in the city has
resulted in the respondents turning to other financial institutions like

credit cooperatives and pawnshops. Aside from that they use the services

of banks outside the city regardless of distance, cost and time

considerations. This shows that there is demand and a lack of supply of

financial services which a local bank could provide.

of five years; interest payable monthly and will be credited to your

current or savings account.

- Interest rates on Time Deposits and Preferred Savings Deposit:

500,000.00- 999,999.99 2.75

1,000,000.00- 4,999,999.99 3.00

On 5M and above, a special rate may be given.

- Savings Deposit accumulates 1.5% per annum, which requires a

monthly minimum balance.

- As for the loans, the rates range from 15% - 18% per annum,

explains DCDB Loans Department.


There are basically two factors affecting the market; these are

internal and external factors.


1. Location
Most if not all of the respondents do their banking in

San Carlos City, Guihulngan City, Dumaguete or outside the City

of Canlaon. Accessibility of the business or the bank would attract

the market to not go out of Canlaon City, but instead do their

banking transactions where it is near.

2. Interest Rates

High interest rates on savings and low interest rates

on loans would entice the market in patronizing the business.

3. Management of the Business

Good management would lead to excellent operations.

And excellent operations lead to give quality service.

4. Employees

Motivated and well-trained employees could help the

bank in giving quality service to its clients. Employees with good

communication skills would have the ability to welcome the clients

and make them feel comfortable when doing their transactions.


1. Competitors

The competitors are the most significant external

factor that could affect the market of the bank because more or

less these pawnshops and credit cooperatives provide similar

products and services. The people of Canlaon City do their banking

transactions in San Carlos City, although this is outside of

Canlaon City. It still poses a threat to the new branch of DCDB

because the depositors have already established the trust and

security of their deposits with these banks. It is noted that there

are eight banks in San Carlos namely: Bank Victorias, BPI, DBP,

PNB, Landbank, RCBC, Equitable PCI and Metrobank.

Guihulngan has three banks namely: Landbank, PNB and the

Rural Bank of Guihulngan City.

2. Security

Because of the previous experience with RB Canlaon City,

the market may now be hesitant to open an account with DCDB.

The security of their deposits will be questioned.

To illustrate and summarize the factors, refer to the model below:

Porters Five Forces

-All loans of small & medium -Security
enterprises -Entry of other banks
-Government patronage -Fortuitous events, i.e, eruption of
-Captive market Mt. Canlaon
-Private sector patronage
An analysis of the two tools illustrated above reveal certain aspects

of the industry that the marketing program will have to address.

An important aspect evident is the fact that the main

advantage of putting up a bank branch in Canlaon City at this

moment is that there is no other equivalent bank (in terms of range

of financial services) in the immediate area. By being the first, the

branch hopes to be able to capture a large portion of the market

before competitors try to enter the area.

In Porters model we also see that it will be relatively easy for

a competing bank to enter the area, as there are low barriers to

entry and little to protect the market originally captured by the

initial entrant. Should an equivalent competitor enter the market

many of Porters forces would change and there would be a higher

level of threat of substitution, thereby giving the buyers and

suppliers a higher level of bargaining power.

The marketing program may address these two aspects by

vigilant attention to their product mix and the demands of the



Before the start of the operations of the bank, an advertising

campaign must be formulated and put into motion. As the government

is foreseen to be a major client, advertising should include this sector

and future products and services should reflect their needs.

Signage should be placed in a few visible areas around the city.

Printed material should also be disseminated showing the banks

products and services and its location.

We suggest constructing two billboards announcing the

establishment of DCDB, Canlaon City branch. A suggested site would be

the junction in the Municipality of Vallehermosa to San Carlos and

Canlaon City. Another site to be considered is at the corner of the

national highway and Aquino Avenue, Canlaon City.

Local print and media advertising will be utilized during the last

four months of the construction. The media will always be informed of

any event concerning the banks development.

On the Citys charter day or fiesta, the bank should already make

its presence known through sponsorships of various activities.

Various promotional schemes will be utilized to attract customers

to bank with DCDB Canlaon City.

First 100 depositors

Type of Account Initial Deposit Giveaways
Savings Account P500-P5,000.00 Ball pen
P5,001-20,000.00 T-shirt
P20,001 above Ball pen & T-shirt
Demand Deposit P5,000-20,000.00 T-shirt
P20,001 above Ball pen & T-shirt
Preferred Accounts P50,000 above Ball pen, T-shirt, Bag
Loan Release Ball pen, T-shirt, Bag

Suggested promotional activities for the subsequent years:

For new accounts with initial deposit of P50,000.00 above,
giveaways should be given like ball pens, bag, t-shirt, umbrella etc
(discretion of the manager)
DCDB must be involved in major activities in the city such as city
fiesta, celebration commemorating the founding of the city, etc.
Give out brochures and fliers.
Summer Extravaganza Promo this is between the months of
March to May. Those who will open an account during this time
will get giveaways such as sun visors, summer cap, fans, and shirt
or other summer wear. The freebies would depend on their initial
Savings for the Rainy days Promo this is between the months of
June to August. Same details will be undertaken with the promo
during summer but the giveaways would differ. The freebies would
be something they could use during the rainy season like
umbrellas, jacket, cap etc.
For the month of December, calendars and diaries will be given to
the clients.

Types of Account Ownership

Individual or Personal Account

The most common type of a bank account is the single-name

individual or personal account in which a single individual transacts

with the bank under his own name. Since the bank deposit is a

contract, only those with legal capacity to enter into contracts may make

bank deposits. Under general contract principles, insane or demented

persons and deaf mutes that do not know how to read or write, cannot

give consent and therefore, cannot enter into contracts, including bank

deposits. The legal presumption that follows when money is deposited in

the individual name of a person is that the money is his property, and

the Bank does not question ownership of funds deposited. In the

absence of fraud, or commission of some other crime or irregularity, the

bank may accept funds for deposit regardless of its source.

Joint Accounts

A joint account is a joint undertaking between two or more

individuals to open and maintain a deposit account with the bank. It

may take the following form:

a. Joint and Account when an account is opened and

maintained in the name of two persons bound together by the

conjunctive and, a co-ownership is created by virtue of which the

ownership on an undivided thing of right belongs to both of them.

b. Joint and/or Account When two depositors open an

account with the use of the disjunctive and/or, either one of

them may deposit and withdraw from the account without the

knowledge, consent and signature of the other.

Business Name/Sole Proprietorship Account

The submission of the application and certificate of registration

issued by the Department of Trade and Industry must first be required

before an account in a business name may be opened. This is especially

true in the case of sole proprietorship in order to ascertain the true name
and real identity of the depositor. Only the registered owner of the

business name may deal with the account, and checks payable to either

the true name or business name may be accepted for deposit to the

account after proper endorsement.

Partnership Account

By the contract of partnership, two or more persons bind

themselves to contribute money, property or industry to a common fund,

with the intention of dividing the profits among themselves.

Corporate Account

A corporation is an artificial being created by operation of law,

having the right of succession and the powers, attributes and properties

expressly authorized by law or incident to its existence. A corporate

account may be opened in the name of the corporation. It is improper

and irregular to open and maintain a corporate account in the individual

name of an officer or any person because funds in a corporate account

belong to the corporation, with the officers acting merely as agents

Accounts of Unregistered or Unincorporated Association

Social clubs, associations, parish or religious organizations and

other unregistered or unincorporated groups may apply for deposit

accounts. In such cases the bank should require a copy of the articles of

association or constitution and by-laws of the organization, which should

contain provisions on the treatment of funds and designation of officers

authorized to deal with bank deposits. A certificate of Authorized

Officers must likewise be required.

Treasurer-In-Trust Account

A temporary account pending the Securities and Exchange

Commission (SEC) approval of a new entitys Article of Incorporation.

The treasurer should hold the money used in opening the account in

trust for the new corporation. Treasurers affidavit must be submitted.

This account is opened with a set of temporary cards only, to be replaced

by set of permanent cards upon SECs approval. No checkbook should

be issued at this point. Usually the client will request for a Banks

certification regarding its cash balance addressed to SEC. This

certification should bear the signature of a Bank officer and duly

notarized before presentation.


Passbook Savings Accounts

Initial deposit P500.00

ADB to earn interest P1,000.00 1.5%

Is a deposit of clients funds commonly evidenced by a passbook

issued by the bank to the depositor. The funds are withdrawable

anytime upon presentation of the passbook and withdrawal slip duly

accomplished and signed by the depositor, subject to verification of

identity, authority, validity of signature and adequacy of balance.

Current/Demand Deposits Accounts

Initial deposit P5,000.00

Maintaining Balance P2,000.00

ADB to earn interest P50,000.00 1.5%

Is a deposit wherein funds may be withdrawn through the

issuance of checks. Checking accounts provide its users the safety and

convenience of paying business and personal transactions without

carrying cash. It is withdrawable anytime upon presentation of a duly

endorsed check, subject to verification of:

a. Identity and authority of drawer and person presenting

the check

b. Adequacy of balance.
Clients may open a checking account as long as the proper

identification papers and documents are presented and the requirements

complied with. Current account depositors may pre-order personal or

commercial checkbooks with the branch.

Preferred/Time deposits

Minimum deposit P50,000.00

Interest Rate 2.25%-3%

These represent funds deposited with the Bank by clients for a

fixed period of time, thus earning interest higher than that given to

savings accounts. Unlike current and savings account, time deposits are

not subject to check or cash withdrawal upon demand. These deposits

The new DCDB Canlaon City branch will follow the bank policies of

that of the Main Branch and other branches as seen in the Banks

Operations Policies and Procedures Manual.

Just to cite some of these policies: a branch teller will only have

P25, 000.00 in his/her cashbox possession, as is prescribed in the

manual of operations. The teller will immediately turn over all excess

amounts to the cashier with proper standard documentation of such

transaction. Deposit to other bank transactions releases the amount

from what is available in the cash in vault. Deposit pick-up between the

bank and the client shall follow agreed banking procedures with

professionalism and utmost security.

The cashier and bank accountant will verify cash in vault at the

end of the day. The main cash vault will be in the dual control of two

authorized employees designated by the executive vice president of the

bank. Bank policy states that the vault shall be regularly opened fifteen

minutes before the start of the day and closed at the earliest possible

for the day after considering banks deposits with which the Bangko

Sentral ng Pilipinas, or BSP, has available for its reserve cover.

laundering policy, Republic Act 9160, and its mandatory plan of actions

to handle such transaction. For existing accounts, the deposit considered

large and unusual are those that are ten times the regular average daily

transaction for the immediate preceding six months and will be subject

to such policy also.

As to be determined by the Board of Directors as of the

moment. Our recommendation is to purchase a bigger piece of land and

develop a commercial complex containing retail, service, and other

business including the bank. Offer this as a start for the small to

medium entrepreneurs of the city. Suggested types of business are a

grocery store and a restaurant or service providers.


The first general assumption is that through a passed city board

resolution, the DCDB Canlaon City branch is made the governments

depository for the city and region. All government financial transactions

including the payroll of the government employees and public school

teachers will avail of the banks services.

Quarterly Internal Revenue Allotment (national) P44,574,756.00

Monthly local collections (taxes, permit, etc.) P14,224,342.32

TOTAL P58,799,098.32

The group makes a general assumption that excess cash will be

loaned out to DCDB main branch at the rate of 9 percent per annum.

Operational Assumptions

a) Bank hours will be from 9:00am to 3:00pm

b) Employees will work till 8:00am to 5:00pm with 1-hour lunch


c) The bank will be open on weekdays and be closed on all public

and special holidays.

d) Cut- off for clearance of cheques will be 9:30am to allow for

travel time to BPI San Carlos whose cut-off time is 11:00am.

e) Excess funds will be deposited with BPI- San Carlos. A portion

may be invested in government securities at managers

discretion subject to restrictions.

f) Maximum of 10 percent current/saving deposits will be kept as

cash in the vault

g) Company will procure a motorcycle for bank use.

h) Main office will provide a service vehicle for the branch

managers use.

i) There will be a provision for an ATM machine in the bank layout

but it will not be installed in the first year of operation, until the

bank will be financially stable to purchase one.

j) All policies and regulations of the department of labor and

employment (DOLE) will be complied with.

k) All policies, rules and regulations of the DCDB main office will

apply to the branch office.

l) The first branch manager will be an officer from DCDB main


m) Rank and file staff will be recruited from qualified residents of

Canlaon City.

Revenue Assumptions

a) One percent service charge will apply to all government


b) Two percent service charge will apply to all payroll


c) Agricultural loans will have an interest rate of 15 percent

d) Commercial loans will have an interest rate of 15 percent.

Expense Assumptions
a) The salary of the bank branch employees will have a three

percent merit increase every year after having rendered a minimum of 1

year of efficient service.

b) The utility expense will increase according to current market


c) Bank premises, furniture, fixtures and equipment are carried at

acquisition cost or construction cost less depreciation and impairment


Depreciation is computed on the straight-line basis over the

estimated useful lives of the assets as follows:

Buildings 40 years

Furniture, fixtures and equipment 1-10 years

Leasehold improvements are amortized over the terms of the

related leases or the useful lives of the improvements whichever is



We foresee the bank branch having an economic impact on the

community. Services offered by the bank will most probably affect certain

prevalent social behaviors.

For instance, people will no longer have to purchase unnecessary

items in order to have their checks cashed locally. Trips to and from San

Carlos City or elsewhere for the purpose of cashing checques and

obtaining money will be minimized. Following this line of thought, people

may travel less and demand that local establishments upgrade their

products and services which are otherwise found in San Carlos City,

Bacolod, or Guihulngan.

More convenient access to financing may encourage more people

and establishments to avail of loans for home or business improvements.

Industrial loans will promote the growth of businesses in the

community. This in turn could lead to more employment opportunities.

Agricultural loans could lead to higher productivity through

improvements in farming practices.


Having the services of a bank brings quite a confidence boost to a

young city like Canlaon City. Once again it is given the opportunity to

present itself as a special growth center of Northern Negros with the

capacity of a financial banking institution. The entrepreneurs will have

the financial confidence, as well as convenience and security, to establish

them in the local and even international business markets.

Having the knowledge, and the assistance, to decide how to invest

and use a loan wisely bring confidence in all working people. The

agricultural sector should be given an opportunity to avail of services

that will save for the future, at the same time increase their power as



As for the bank, there will be a staff of at 6 persons, not including

the security guards. The tellers, bookkeepers, clerks and messenger can

be locally hired if qualified.

As for the city, the bank provides the ability, for small to medium

business entrepreneurs through loans, to put up the business, which in

turn creates jobs.

As for the agriculture sector, through education and

communication, will develop the consumer confidence that can fuel the

citys economy thus creating more jobs. The agricultural community will

also benefit from having the capital to utilize more efficient means of
production such as mechanization, improved storage and handling


When starting a business, its crucial that the owner must be

familiar with the basics of business law. Most businesses legal

troubles are the result of unclear documents. Whether one deals with

employees, contractors, or the services that offered, there are certain

legalities that one should consider.

In applying for a Mayors permit, the bank must submit a copy of

the SEC registration. Zoning and Locational clearance and certificate of

building inspection must be obtained from the Engineering department.

And then proceed to the Bureau of Fire Protection for the Fire Safety

Inspection clearance. The officer-in-charge will then assess the

building for architectural presentability, structural stability, sanitary

inspection and signage. Assessment and Payment must be made and

after that is the issuance of Business/Mayors Permit.

Since the project is to establish a bank, legalities with the

Bangko Sentral must also be accomplished. The application for

authority to establish a bank should be completed before the

requirements for the issuance of authority to operate is complied with.

After the inauguration of the bank, within 30 days from the date

of opening, another set of requirements must also be submitted to the

Central Bank.

For the bank operations, as mentioned in Republic Act 8791, The

General Banking Law, Section 21, Banking Days and Hours are,

Unless otherwise authorized by the Bangko Sentral in the interest of the

banking public, all banks including their branches and offices shall

transact business on all working days for at least six (6) hours a day. In
addition, banks or any of their branches or offices may open for business

on Saturdays, Sundays or holidays for at least three (3) hours a day:

Provided, That banks which opt to open on days other than working days

shall report to the Bangko Sentral the additional days during which they

or their branches or offices shall transact business.

Chapter 7 of Republic Act 7906, or An Act Providing for the

Regulation of the Organization and Operations of Thrift Banks, And for

Other Purposes, states exemptions which a thrift bank is legally entitled

to. Briefly, the exemptions are: 1) tax emptions; 2) exemption from

publication requirement; 3) exemption from notarial charges; 4)

exemption from registration fees.

For the proposed project, it shall be opened from Monday thru

Fridays, 9:00am to 3:00pm. However, employees are set to work from

8:00am to 5:00pm with a 1-hour lunch period.


Figure 1 shows the age bracket of respondents. Twenty-six

percent of the respondents are aged between 41-50 followed by 31-40

years old, 25 percent. A total of 77 percent of the respondents can be

considered to be in the wage earner age.

Figure 2 shows that 58 percent of those who answered the

questionnaires are female and 29 percent are male. Thirteen percent did

not specify their gender

Figure 3 shows the civil status of the respondents. Fifty-seven percent of

those who responded are married and 23 percent are single. Seven

percent are widowed and 13 percent did not specify their status.

Below 5,000 104

0 20 40 60 80 100 120

Figure 5 shows the range for the monthly income of the respondents. Out

of the 384 respondents 114 of the respondents earn between P5,001 to

P10,000. This is followed by 104 respondents, earn below P5,000. The

researchers sought to determine if the respondents belonged to the

income generating body of Canlaon City. According to this data 56

percent of the respondents belonged to the 10,000 and below monthly

income bracket. Even if a large portion of the sample size earn 10,000 or

below we can see from the succeeding graph that 44 percent of the

sample population spend below 5,000 pesos a month. This would mean

that at least some if not most of the 10,000 peso and below income

earners will also only expend 5,000 pesos per month. We can imply from

this that even though a large percentage of the sample population earn a
relatively low monthly income their monthly expenses are still low and

this is encouraging as it may be an indicator that even the lower income

earning individuals may still have the capacity to save. This

presupposes that the lower income earners are also the ones who have a

lower monthly expenditure, which it is logical to assume.

Figure 6 shows the monthly expenses of the respondents. The

researchers wanted to know the spending power of the residents of

Canlaon. Forty-four percent of the employed sector spend below 5,000,

twenty seven percent spend P5,001-P10,000, eighteen percent spend

P10,001-15,000 and 8 percent of the respondents spend P15,000 and

Figure 7 shows the monthly savings of the respondents. From their

monthly income, 227 respondents answered that they save below 1,000.

79 respondents save between 1,001-5,000. And 23 respondents save

between 5,001-10,000. There were 18 who answered none and 28

respondents did not specify their savings. The researchers sought to

establish that people still save money. This question also served to

determine the amount of savings of the sample population.

Figure 8 shows that 60 percent of the respondents already have an

existing bank account with other banking institutions outside Canlaon

City and thirty six percent dont have bank deposits. The researchers

wanted to determine the percentage of those who avail of the services of a

bank and those who dont.

Figure 9 shows the existing banks that the respondents specified. It

shows that the majority of the respondents who avail of banking

institutions outside Canlaon City go to Landbank San Carlos or

Guihulngan. These banks also pose as competitors to DCDB. Although

located outside of Canlaon City, but still are catering to banking needs of

target market of this study.

Figure 10 shows the products and services of the existing banks

which the respondents avail of. It shows that the bigger portion of

the pie goes to savings accounts deposits (46 percent). Eleven

percent avail of the loan services of their banks.

Figure 11 shows the current problems the respondents encountered

with their banks. Twenty-six percent indicated that the main

problem is the low savings interest rates that their current bank

offers. Eighteen percent indicated distance to their banking

institution was a problem.

Figure 12 shows the number of respondents in favor of the

establishment of a DCDB branch in Canlaon City. Only 2

respondents are not in favor. One respondent who answered No

said that the bank would be a future competitor of the office the

respondent is currently working for.

Figure 13 shows the sites the respondents prefer as a location for

the bank. The majority said that it would be best if the branch would be

situated in the city proper or the city center. This is actually misleading

as Mabigo Midtown and City Proper are the same place. In effect almost

60 percent of the population prefer the midtown area for the location of

the bank branch. The group are recommending a site outside of that

area due to price considerations. However, the researchers believe that

regardless of where the bank will be located in Canlaon City, it would be

only minutes away from the city center

Figure 14 shows the products and services that the respondents would

like to avail of if the plan for a DCDB branch in Canlaon City

materializes. 35.17 percent for savings deposits, 10.94 percent for time

deposits, and 9.95 percent for loans.

Figure 15 shows the other financial institutions utilized by the

respondents. These institutions are also considered as competitors of

the bank because they offer similar products and services such as small

loans and cashing of cheques. The chart shows that 47.9 percent of the

respondents avail of services from SSS/GSIS. 20.2 percent of the

respondents go to pawnshops and 22.9 percent to credit cooperatives.

Others go to informal lending institutions such as the 5-6, meaning for

every five pesos barrowed, six pesos must be returned.

Figure 16 shows the percentage of the respondents who would avail of

DCDBs product and services. Out of the 384 respondents, 99 percent

would readily avail of these services and only 1 percent would not

because the bank would be a threat (competition) to the company the

respondent works for.



1) There is a demand for a bank in Canlaon City. Only two of 384

respondents did not see a need for a bank in the area. This
makes up .5 percent of respondents not in favor of a bank in


2) The socio-economic profile of the community indicates that a

significant portion of the community saves. Specifically, the

survey revealed that from their monthly income, the majority

(227 respondents) answered that they save below P1,000. This

comprises 59 percent of the total respondents.

3) A majority of respondents (35.17 percent) are willing to

establish a savings account with the proposed bank. 10.94

percent would put their money in a time deposit account, and

9.95 percent would avail of bank loans.

4) The governments monthly revenues are as follows:

From taxes, licenses, and permits: P14,224,342.32

From National Government Subsidiaries: P44,574,756.00

From other sources: P1,233,522.76


Based on the above findings, we conclude that the proposed

branch of DCDB cannot rely on revenues generated by non-government

sources such as interest from loans. This is because the income-earning

non-government sector has very little power to save amounts of any

significance. Despite the widespread desire for a formal banking

institution, any revenue generated from savings accounts, loans, and

other fees would be negligible. The general economic level of the city

shows that there are no large enterprises and that the city is

predominantly agricultural.

Despite this deficiency, the large Internal Revenue Allotment (IRA),

revenues generated by fees from taxes, licenses, and permits, and the

government payroll, coupled with the present administrations

willingness to have the proposed bank act as its official depository offsets

the low saving power of the private sector.

In conclusion, we find it feasible to open a branch in Canlaon, only

if the proposed bank branch can capture the government market and act

as its official depository at the outset.


We therefore recommend the following:

1) Obtain a board resolution from the local government

designating the proposed bank as its official depository.

2) Obtain approval from the Banko Sentral Monetary Board

allowing the DCDB branch to act as the official local

government depository in the absence of an existing official

depository in the area.

3) Purchase the site of the proposed branch. Later when

feasible, buy the surrounding lots for future expansion

including after business enterprises.

4) To insure the continued support of the local government in

the advent of competitor banks entering the market,

continuously update products and services in order to meet

the governments evolving needs.

5) In the first three years of operation the bank should:

a) Be conservative with its loan exposure

b) Maintain a level of liquidity at or above the industry

Comments and Suggestions Given by Respondents

I believe that Canlaon City does need a bank in order to augment

our livelihood through its banking services and to provide security

in any amount of money we can save.

The proposed establishment of DCDB in Canlaon City will be very

beneficial to its residents especially to businessmen and planters

since the city has no existing bank and other financial institutions.

The proposed project is a big honor for the Canlaonians for it will

not cost them too much for the fare and time in going to San

Carlos to deposit or withdraw their money.

I want this proposed project to be fulfilled and accomplished

because I want to change the economic situation of the city and life

of the people in Canlaon City. Kaya dapat lang ipatupad ninyo

ngayon ang plano ng DCDB.

There should be low interest rates imposed, fast release of

transactions, and not too many or difficult requirements to


I would like to suggest the following:

1. High interest in savings account

2. Accommodating staff

3. Offer quick loans release

4. Must have good location and parking area

This is a very feasible project for the city to improve its economic

situation and to provide convenience of its residents. People will

learn to save and there will be lesser risk for us to transact

banking business in other places far from the city. We hope that

the project will be implemented this year (2007). More power to the


Make the project soon. It will provide us convenience, the ability to

manage our finances and improve the economic situation in

Canlaon City.

people are looking forward.

For immediate implementation of the project.

We really dont have fixed income. Last few years I was able to avail

of banking services from DBP and other banks in San Carlos City.

It is unwise to place your savings in places where you have to

spend and several pesos will be wasted for your fare back and

forth. I realized I was not saving because of the distance from the

bank to our place. I would be vary happy to avail of services from

your bank because this is what is lacking in our place. I hope you

will open the soonest possible time.

Soon the bank will be open.

Its okay to have a bank here in Canlaon so its easy, especially for

the students on their allowances.

Big investors are hesitant to come to Canlaon for no bank is

available and they have no travel an hour to San Carlos City for

banking services. If DCDB opens its branch in Canlaon, it would

be a boost to our local economy and an eye opener for the locals to

save or deposit their money to the bank instead of hiding it in

certain places that might lead to loss or impulse spending.
