City Government of Manila, Globe and GCash innovate digital lifestyle for students

The City Government of Manila has partnered with Globe Telecom and GCash to innovate the lives of ordinary Filipino students and introduce the wonders of digital, cashless financial transactions to them.

Around 1,000 students under the scholarship program spearheaded by Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso will receive their allowances and monetary benefits through the GCash digital app platform. They will also receive a corresponding GCash Mastercard, which they can use to cash out money. The card also doubles as an official identification card signifying their status as a bona fide scholarship beneficiary.

Globe meanwhile powers mobile Internet connectivity for the students with its revolutionary GoWiFi service, which allows users to automatically connect to public hotspots in malls, coffee shops, restaurants, convenience stores, transport terminals and hubs, and many other sites.

GoWiFi ensure continuous and seamless Internet connectivity with its numerous hotspots across the country at present.

On its part, GCash lauds the city government of Manila for supporting such digital innovations and partnering with them to bring the benefits of a fully digital lifestyle closer to more Filipinos.

Moreover, GCash helps the youth start on a journey toward financial literacy and empowerment. “Innovative features such as GSave or Save Money allow students to start digital savings without the hassles of opening an account,” said GCash chief executive officer Anthony Thomas. On GCash, one can also start investing and eventually take care of important responsibilities such as paying bills.

“It is a truly digital lifestyle that are empowering these students with,” added Thomas.
