GCash Strengthens Partnership with the Public Sector to Promote Digital Financial Inclusion for All

To fast-track economic recovery amid the pandemic, public and private sectors must unite and work together to achieve a more inclusive financial ecosystem for all Filipinos. This is the vision behind "One with the Nation: Forging Public-Private Partnerships Towards Digital Inclusion in the Philippines," a webinar organized by GCash in collaboration with various national government agencies and local government units (LGUs).

The webinar featured distinguished speakers from both the public and private sectors led by Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas Gov. Benjamin Diokno, Makati Mayor Abby Binay, Congressman Jose Enrique Garcia, DSWD Director Wayne Belizar, Bureau of Treasury of the Philippines OIC Deputy Treasurer Ed Marino, BSP Deputy Director for Payment Systems Atty. Leah Irao, GCash President and CEO Martha Sazon, GCash VP for Enterprise Jose Luis Reyes and GCash AVP and Head of Public Sector & Partnerships Cathlyn Pavia.

"Our partnership with the private sector have provided us with a wide network to reach more customers and develop more relevant financial services and products," said Martha Sazon. "But to truly reach the unbanked and under served communities, we look to the public sector with their expertise and resources. Together, we can really make a difference in the lives of Filipinos."

BSP Governor Benjamin Diokno underscored the importance of making financial inclusion a reality for every Filipino in the country. 

Mayor Abby Binay shared in her "Digital Headstart: Kaya Mo Pilipino! how data of her constituents in Makati were collected and used to create Makatizen ID card and open GCash accounts. The card serves as a valid ID that can be used to avail of government services, and a debit card to withdraw in any Bancnet ATM or use in the Mastercard-accepting merchants. Makati also uses GCash to disburse the salaries of employees, and allowances of senior citizens, and other financial assistance such as Maka-tulong. 

The mobile app has also partnered with the Social Security System. Since February, SSS has enable GCash as an option for receiving benefits through PESOnet. The app has provided SSS members an option to pay their monthly contribution payments via the app's Pay Bills feature. Likewise for PAG-IBIG, contributions are also conveniently accepted via Pay Bills and Web Pay.

 As a conclusion to the One Nation webinar, GCash VP for Enterprise Jose Luis Reyes said that financial inclusion is important and expressed optimism that despite today's challenges, there is a clear way forward to achieve BSP's vision and make Filipino lives better every day.
