“We hope by dedicating this facility to the growth and education of MSMEs by providing access to finance and support services we will be able to support the government’s vision of empowering and fueling dreams of MSMEs throughout the country,” said Rajan Uttamchandani, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Esquire Financing Inc.

The development of ARCA South is in full swing and soon, it will be one of the most connected Central Business and Lifestyle Districts of Metro Manila. The main advantage of ARCA South is its accessibility, especially when the Taguig Integrated Terminal Exchange is operational which will provide the connection to different modes of transportation. The efficiency of this integrated terminal exchange is significantly enhanced by its upcoming connectivity to major infrastructure – the C5 ramp, the Skyway ramp from South Luzon Expressway, the Mega Manila subway station, and the access to the Southeast Metro Manila Expressway. All these will provide a seamless and more efficient travel for thousands of employees who will be living and working within the new CBD, decongesting other areas of Metro Manila.
