Do you wonder if banks here in the Philippines can do the same as Woodforest National Bank? Could they open their banks 364 days in a year and some 24hours a day? It's a sort of impossible but do you know that they do now? Logically they do because they have their ATM's and some are now online thru Internet. I mentioned to my post On-line banking some of the banks that have their on-line banking.
