Green Bank, Inc. is a large, private, rural bank with operations predominantly in Mindanao and the Visayas regions of the Philippines. Through a microfinance unit established in 1999, Green Bank lends capital to poor rural and semi-urban micro-entrepreneurs. Loans are offered through two programs: BULAK, a group-liability lending program for micro-entrepreneurial women in rural villages; and TREES, an individual-liability lending program for micro-entrepreneurs in semi-urban areas. Green Bank was acquired by EastWest Bank in 2013.
