Small medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are the backbone of our economy, but often face harsh conditions and criteria imposed by banking institutions.

The company aspires to revolutionize the trade finance industry and become the leading and leading provider of financial solutions to its clients worldwide.
“We want to offer our consumers fast and customer-oriented terms as an alternative to the bureaucratic and lengthy traditional ways that are commonly used. Especially for micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) in emerging markets and unbanked areas when financial tools are needed to facilitate imports and projects,” said Javela Macalalad, Group Vice President, Yield 4 Group of Companies.
Under Macalalad’s leadership, the group has expanded its reach and continues to innovate strategies to create a more inclusive global financial environment.
