GCash PalengQR-PH Bohol

Launches with over 280 market stalls/TODAs in Tagbilaran City

Leading mobile wallet GCash has partnered with the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP), Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG), and the local government of Tagbilaran City for the rollout of the Paleng-QR Ph program in the Bohol capital.

 

The Paleng-QR Ph program, jointly developed by BSP and DILG, aims to build the digital payments ecosystem in the country by promoting cashless QR payments in public markets and local transportation, particularly tricycles.

“Under this partnership, our merchants at the Dao Public Market and the rest of the micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) in Tagbilaran City are enjoined to display their GCash QR code at their stores with the statement ‘We accept GCash here’. This way, we are empowering our small vendors to adopt cashless transactions in our efforts to boost digitalization in how they do business,” Martha Sazon, chief executive officer of GCash, said during the launch of the Paleng-QR Ph in the city on Jan. 10, 2023.

Capitalizing on the QR Ph initiative, the program, which was launched in June 2022, seeks the policy championship and enjoins LGUs to push for the acceptance of digital payments among market vendors, community shopkeepers, and tricycle operators and drivers (TODA) in all cities and municipalities in the country.

Currently, there are about 138 active GCash Pera Outlets where GCash users can cash in and cash out.

 

GCash QR codes deployed as of January 10, 2023 are all operational and widely used by locals and tourists.  GCash to GCash transactions continue to remain free of charge ensuring convenience to its patrons.

“We fully support the Paleng-QR initiative of the government because we believe that in order for Filipinos to really adopt cashless transactions, the natural place to introduce this is where they usually spend their money – the wet markets or  “palengkes”. We aim to enable more Filipinos to thrive in this digital era,” Sazon explained.

Expressing her optimism on the program’s rollout in Tagbilaran, City Mayor Jane Yap pointed out that this is an important breakthrough in the City’s financial inclusion efforts.

 

“We welcome this milestone partnership with GCash, especially since we, at the City Government, have been supporting the City’s efforts towards digitalization. This is an important step to achieving that goal. With this collaboration, we are optimistic of the economic benefits that it will bring especially to our Boholano vendors,” Yap said.

“We have definitely made progress in this program. We are on the right track in making financial services easier to access and understand through our GCash app. With this long-term partnership, we aim to create a brighter, more financially-inclusive future for Filipinos,” added Sazon.

GCash, Sakahon Empower Agricultural Sector Through Affordable, Convenient Loans for Farmers in Floridablanca, Pampanga

Published

on

With its clear vision to promote financial inclusion and digital adoption for all Filipinos, GCash, the country’s leading mobile wallet, has launched a pilot Farmer Loan initiative which aims to empower and improve the financial literacy and capabilities of the agricultural community in Floridablanca, Pampanga.

The launch was done in collaboration with Sakahon, an award-winning agritech  social enterprise that enables farmers to analyze and use data to know what the market needs ahead of time.

GCash, Sakahon Empower Agricultural Sector Through Affordable, Convenient Loans for Farmers in Floridablanca, Pampanga

GCash assisted over 30 partner farmers in creating their own accounts to allow them to avail of quick and easy cash loans offered by GCash’s credit affiliate, Fuse Lending. Likewise, the farmers were introduced to other GCash services like Send Money, Pay QR, as well as savings and investment solutions.

Nanay Gemma is among the first Filipino farmers who will benefit from these digitally inclusive loans. She said in Filipino, “this program of GCash will enable us to transact faster. We don’t need many documents and no more long lines. We are grateful for this opportunity so that we are better connected to the market and to the digital world.”

Through this initiative, farmers can easily avail of additional capital for their crops through GLoan; save money and enjoy interest rates as high as 7.2% per annum through GSave; grow their money by investing in a market fund with GInvest; and protect themselves and their families by getting insured through GInsure.

“Thanks to our partnership with Sakahon, we’re making sure every Filipino, especially our farmers, have access to affordable and safe loans, helping improve their livelihood and the lives of their families,” said Tony Isidro, CEO of Fuse Lending. “As the Philippines grapple with food security issues, it’s now more important than ever to support our farmers and empower them with innovative digital financial solutions.”

Elaine Timbol, CEO of Sakahon also highlighted, “GCash has been instrumental in bridging the gap between farmers and more affordable formal loans. Through this program, we hope to have a meaningful and lasting impact on the lives of our farmers, as we help them secure their financial future. Through financial literacy programs and bringing formal financial services closer to farmers, not only will their families benefit, but also the Philippine economy, which has been suffering from a stagnant agricultural sector.”

With over 71 million registered users to date, GCash has been tirelessly working to democratize access to important financial services like formal lending through GLoan, GGives, and GCredit.
