This is because it allows them to have enough freedom to maximize their money while still getting to enjoy what they want and need,” said GCash president and CEO Martha Sazon.
Sazon said these features also offer Filipinos safe and effective credit services with fair and transparent interest rates.
Qualified users can apply for GGives and GLoan through the app, GCash said.
The government has been intensifying its financial inclusivity programs to grow the number of bank accounts with the use of digital ID as well as support for digital banking and e-money services.
