Jungle's COVID-19 Initiative: Grocery Now, Pay Later
Updated: Oct 22
During times of crisis like the COVID-19 pandemic and its effect like the Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) in the whole region of Luzon, Filipino consumers are more concerned about what to put on their table and whether they have enough personal protection equipment and goods like face masks, gloves, and alcohol than worrying about their loan payments.
Although we applaud the efforts of other lenders to help Filipinos during the ECQ by granting them extensions for their loan payments, we also understand that Jungle has the capability, resources, and a moral obligation to be of more assistance to our fellow countrymen.
That is why we launched a temporary service called "Grocery Now, Pay Later" that enables consumers to use their Jungle credit lines to purchase food, health products, and other essential goods and services from any grocery stores and pharmacies of their choice. This will enable them to pay in fixed monthly installments without a need for a down payment or a credit card which most Filipinos don't have.
This will also allow Filipinos to stretch their budgets and allocate their hard-earned money for other important things and expenses instead of paying upfront for a huge grocery or pharmacy bill.
