DiskarTech should rename itself to DisturbTech because the ad that the mobile app released is disturbingly weird as fuck.
The 1 minute 39 second ad, released on the app’s Facebook page features a representative from DiskarTech emerging from what appears to be a carabao’s anus.
The rep then proceeds to casually talk to the bewildered farmers about how the app enables them to obtain a diverse range of loans. Makes sense, since the ad is titled ‘Ang Utang ni Tatang’ which translates to Dad’s Debts in Tagalog.
Founded in July 2020, DiskarTech is apparently regulated by the central bank of the Philippines and insured by the Philippine Deposit Insurance Corporation (PDIC).
DiskarTech touts itself as the first Tagalog-English financial inclusion “super app” in the Philippines. It’s objective is to make banking services much more accessible to Filipinos, especially people like those bewildered farmers.
The app, according to some reports, allows users to save, deposit, and withdraw, as well as purchase mobile top-up, insurances, and more.
I’m still thinking about the carabao and its relevance to banking.
