IN support to the government’s mandate to make public service more convenient and accessible to Filipinos, the National Home Mortgage Finance Corp. (NHFMC) expanded its partnership with PayMaya to allow its borrowers to conveniently pay their housing loans anytime, anywhere.

With the renewed partnership, NHMFC borrowers can soon pay for their housing loans at the NHMFC website using any Visa, Mastercard or JCB credit, debit and prepaid card, as well as via their mobile numbers linked to their PayMaya account.

In 2015, PayMaya, through Smart Money, was tapped by NHMFC to allow its borrowers to pay for their housing loans through their mobile phones.

“Through the new online payment facility on the NHMFC site, our borrowers no longer have to leave the convenience of their homes to travel and pay for their monthly amortization. They can pay their housing loans even on weekends and holidays, wherever they are by just going to our website,” said NHMFC President Felixberto Bustos, Jr.

Moreover, for the secondary mortgage institution, Bustos said “it will enhance its payment collection and will allow both NHMFC and the borrower to have the payment posted almost real-time.”

For his part, PayMaya Enterprise Head Mar Lazaro said: “This renewed collaboration allows NHMFC to bring a more efficient and convenient public service to their borrowers. Making public service accessible to all Filipinos is in line with our thrust at PayMaya to push for financial inclusion through our digital financial services.”

As of 2012, the Housing Industry Roadmap of the Philippines: 2012-2030 report of the Subdivision and Housing Developers Association Inc. showed 3.9 million in housing backlogs or 832,000 families who cannot afford to purchase a house. To address this, the Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council and other shelter agencies have been working together to implement a comprehensive housing roadmap.
