This is one cool idea, being the first and only Loans Concept Store presented by the executives of BPI to bloggers invited for the launch of 102 Paseo last November 10 in Makati.
102 Paseo is the new place fit to be called as the "new hang-out for practical people". I really didn't expect what the place actually looks like - glass-paneled doors where you can't fail to notice because of a "handsome car on display" inside. It is actually at the back of BPI bank at their main office but when you get inside, it’s like you’re in a one-stop-shop where you can rest (fully air-conditioned area with Wi-Fi access), have coffee or grab for a fruit shake and wait for someone to discuss you about worthy investments to help you step up and fulfill your dreams.
The idea of 102 Paseo Loans Concept Store is actually the brain child of Mr. Herbert Tuazon, BPI’s VP for product marketing, and when we had the chance to talk to him about the project, I cannot help but admire him because of wisdoms he shared to us over lunch, and mind you he’s not even particular about their brand. It was more like of coaching us to get started in getting our dreams, what are the practical investments, the reliable and dependable resources to achieve the things that we dream to have – be it a car, a house & lot property and even a our own business. We all went home with our mindset rich with positive ideas that BPI is not just a plain bank or financial institution to provide you for a quick financial source – the Bank of the Philippine Island /BPI Family Savings also aims to help and give every Filipino and Filipino families the opportunity to fulfill our every dream.
