Originally set up for exclusive family source of financial support it also became lender to close relatives and friends who sought immediate financial assistance. Looking at how it had grown over the years and the number of individuals it had helped, the founders decided to incorporate so it can reach a wider customer base whilst complying with the rules and regulations of the Government’s regulatory agencies.

The company offers short term loans to salaried individuals both in private and Government service, Overseas Filipino Workers, Pensioners and small business owners among others. ISLӔNDER™ is currently operating from its head office in Mactan Island, Cebu, Philippines.
