GCash offers bank accounts and credit lines, insurance protections, a tree-planting tool, cash loans, investment marketplaces, and a mini app for merchants and brands, making it one super lifestyle app.
“The same way that GCash has now become a household name and top-of-mind finance platform for our consumers, we aspire to become a top employer of choice to all the talents out there,” said Jaime Augusto Zobel de Ayala, chairman of the board for Globe, who shared the message during the launch. Beyond technology and numbers, GCash has purpose and financial inclusion at its core.
