Malaysia’s Senang.io Unveils GoodProtect, Loan Insurance for Rural Filipino Banks

by June 3, 2024

Senangdali, a subsidiary of the Malaysian insuretech firm Senang.io, has launched a new loan protection insurance product, GoodProtect, tailored for rural banks in the Philippines and underwritten by local insurance providers.

This strategic initiative, in collaboration with GoodTech, aims to provide financial security for over 57 million Filipinos, representing more than half (52%) of the national population. The Philippines is home to more than 350 rural banks, serving as crucial financial pillars in their local communities.

Recognising the distinct needs of these institutions, Senangdali has developed GoodProtect as a bespoke insurance product that integrates smoothly with the banks’ existing services. This initiative not only expands the banks’ service offerings but also strengthens the financial resilience of their clients.

This collaboration with GoodTech, facilitated by the Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC) through the DEX Connex Philippines 2024, marks the beginning of an ambitious rollout plan. DEX Connex, initiated by the Digital Exports Division of MDEC, aims to extend the revenue reach of Malaysian tech companies into regional and global markets.

Following the introduction of loan protection insurance via GoodProtect, the partnership plans to launch a motor aggregator platform and personal accident insurance, broadening the spectrum of services available to rural banks.
