Home Credit’s Samsung Galaxy J Series Promo is Back!

Published on 11.8.2016

 

 

Due to popular demand, Home Credit Philippines and Samsung Philippines have decided to

bring back the Samsung Galaxy J Series Promo where consumers can get a hold of the latest Samsung Galaxy J5 2016 and J7 2016 at 0% interest from August 5 to September 4, 2016.

“Our first 0% promo with Samsung for the J Series smartphones last summer was a huge success, and there is demand from customers even after the promo was over,” remarked Home Credit Philippines’ Head of Sales, Adam Bernasek. “So it was a very easy decision for us to bring back the promo with Samsung, and help more people get their hands on the amazing J Series phones.”

Customers may avail of the Samsung Galaxy J5 2016 for as low as P1,199 per month, or the Samsung Galaxy J7 2016 at P1,499 on instalment-basis for 6 months, through any of Home Credit’s retail partners.

The all-new Samsung Galaxy J5 and J7 2016 both feature 48GB memory, which can store thousands of selfies. At the same time, both units feature two new technologies, Signal Max and Ultra Data Saving, both first launched in the Philippines through the J5 and J7 2016. Signal Max provides for wider signal coverage and enhanced call quality. While its Ultra Data Saving feature enables consumers to save up to 50% on their mobile data consumption. Imagine how many more additional hours of internet browsing, video and music streaming, and photo uploads you can do with these savings. They also feature HD Super AMOLED displays, for true-to-life colors and clearer and deeper images. They even have improved cameras, with a 13MP back and 5MP front camera, f/1.9 aperture and LED front flash, both units produce high-quality pictures even in low-light conditions. They also come with 3,100 mAh and 3,300 mAh, for J5 and J7 2016 respectively. On top of these, they also feature Ultra Power Saving to help extend battery life, as well LTE Dual SIM, for added convenience.

“We are happy to be providing Filipinos the option to purchase the gadgets, appliances, and electronics they need via affordable loan installments, allowing them to manage their finances better. And we are very fortunate to have partners like Samsung who share the same vision,” said Bernasek.

Home Credit PH eyes growth under new CEO

Published on 19.7.2016

 

 

Propelled by market growth and expansion in the first half of 2016, global consumer finance company Home Credit maintains an optimistic outlook

for the rest of the year, with newly appointed Chief Executive Annica Witschard stating that the company looks to grow its customer-base to half-a-million by year’s end.

A multinational company providing affordable financing to Filipinos seeking to buy gadgets and home appliances, Home Credit Philippines is currently servicing 280,000 customers, 180,000 of which are new customers acquired in a short span of nine months, from over 220 leading merchants all over the country. Home Credit began its operations in 2013, servicing Manila and eventually expanding to neighboring cities in Luzon. In the first half of 2016, Home Credit Philippines launched in Cebu City followed by Pampanga, Batangas, Cabanatuan and is now operating in 12 provinces in the country aside from Metro Manila.

“Our growth, in terms of number of areas reached and number of customers served, has been encouraging, considering we have only been in the market for less than three years,” said Witschard.

“But this is only the beginning. With a 100-million strong population, the Philippine market has huge potential, and that is why we are rapidly increasing our presence outside the metro. Given what we were able to achieve over the last nine months, we are determined to see even more remarkable results,” she added.

According to Witschard, Home Credit’s service hinges on the promise of providing “easy, simple fast solutions to our valued consumers” in partnership with leading electronic brands such as Samsung and OPPO, and top retail partners such as SM, Robinsons, Automatic Centre and more.

Promoting financial inclusion

However, beyond merely helping Filipinos avail of gadgets and appliances, Witschard emphasized that the company plays a deeper role in the finance sector.

“A huge majority of Filipinos still have little to no access to financial tools and services, which can have a profound impact on how they live and enjoy their lives. We want to change that. That is why even first-time borrowers are eligible to apply for Home Credit financing. A loan approval then opens the doors for getting a credit history, and ultimately being included in the financial system,” Witschard explained.

Witschard is no stranger to the banking and finance industry, as she joins Home Credit Philippines after a15-year stint with GE (General Electric) Capital’s subsidiary in Northern Europe.

Former country CEO David Minol gave full support to Witschard and expressed confidence that the Philippine team is fully capable to take major business leaps.

“It’s an exciting time for the team working under Annica’s wing. Her impressive track record in managing financial companies in high-paced and aggressively changing environments speaks volumes of her potent leadership. Her comprehensive experience with different cultures makes her very well-positioned to lead and oversee our geographical and business growth,” said Minol, who is now Home Credit’s Regional Executive Director overseeing the Czech and Slovak regions.

Earlier this week, Home Credit hosted a roundtable with members of the media to formally introduce our new CEO

Annica Witschard, and share the company’s key milestones and future plans. Among the media present was Jon Carlos Rodriguez of ABS-CBN News, who wrote an article on the “gadget craze” as being a main driver of demand for non-bank loans.

In the article, Rodriguez quoted Ms. Witschard, who remarked that “a lot of our growth so far has been in the mobile market. The mobile and smartphone market is attracting exactly our type of customers, which are interested in quick access to finances.”

Noting the observation of Home Credit’s Head of PR, Dmitry Borisenko, Rodriguez also wrote that the company’s business model “fits the spending habits of the “millennial” generation, who are among the youngest in the workforce,” with home appliances also in high demand among young couples.
