GCash marks National Migrant Workers’ Day by strengthening commitment to reach more Filipinos globally

In solidarity with our modern-day heroes who tirelessly find ways to care for their loved ones back home, GCash is continuing its global expansion to give more overseas Filipinos workers access to affordable, secure, and convenient financial services.‍

The Void is not synonymous with stagnation; rather, it's a fertile ground for exploration and discovery. By understanding and embracing the Void, creatives can liberate themselves from the constraints of expectation and perfectionism. This liberation becomes a catalyst for fresh ideas, enabling a departure from the ordinary and a journey into uncharted territories of innovation.

Navigating the Void requires a willingness to confront uncertainty and silence the noise of external influences. It's a practice in mindfulness and self-discovery—a journey into the depths of one's own thoughts and emotions. In this solitude, creatives often find the raw materials for groundbreaking concepts, discovering connections and patterns that were previously obscured.

The process of engaging with the Void is not about avoiding challenges but transforming them into opportunities. It encourages a shift in perspective, viewing obstacles not as roadblocks but as stepping stones to innovation. By understanding 'the Void' as a realm of potential, creatives unlock the door to their most authentic and impactful work, revealing the beauty that emerges when the creative spirit is allowed to roam freely. In essence, the Void becomes not an abyss to be feared, but a sanctuary where creativity thrives, and our most brilliant ideas come to life.

More Filipinos around the world can now use GCash, the Philippines’ top finance app, with features and functionalities specifically catered to the needs of our countrymen living overseas. Under GCash International, Filipinos in 14 territories—the US, Canada, Italy, the UK, Australia, Japan, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Spain, Germany, and Singapore—can use international mobile numbers to sign up for and use the GCash app. The next half of 2024 will see Kuwait and Saudi Arabia follow suit.

GCash reiterated its pledge to support Filipinos abroad in creating a brighter future for themselves and their families when the company took part in this year’s National Migrant Workers’ Day commemoration at the Department of Migrant Workers.

GCash International General Manager Paul Albano said of the global expansion,

“Through strong, active partnerships and our long-held commitment to Filipinos, wherever they are in the world, GCash International is able to foster trust and convenience among our hardworking OFWs and the people who matter the most to them.”

GCash’s expansion is in service to about two million overseas Filipino workers—more of whom can be confident that they can safely and instantly send money to their families. GCash's partnerships with over 70 accredited remittance companies globally—including Western Union, Remitly, Moneygram, and Ria—enable free and real-time in-app money transfers between accounts, thus avoiding the inconvenience and uncertainty of long-distance money orders.

GCash International has further widened its network for ease of access. Through GCash's partnership with instant payments technology company Meridian Payments, US-based app users can now transfer funds directly to GCash accounts from 12,000 US banks. GCash automatically converts US dollars into Philippine pesos upon cash-in, offering competitive ForEx rates along with a nominal transaction fee of $1.

GCash’s global expansion also aims to empower Filipinos overseas to take full control over their finances through multiple in-app services. Users overseas can buy load for their loved ones back home, and they can now directly pay their bills—including government payables like taxes and contributions, as well as utility and tuition fees—to over 1,900 Philippine billers. Soon, through the GSave feature, Filipinos abroad can also build their savings conveniently through the app.

Albano shares,

“Financial inclusion is at the core of what we do at GCash. As we expand our financial services globally through GCash International, we are empowering millions of Filipinos to secure their financial freedom. Just as importantly, we are helping Filipinos all over the world stay connected with their loved ones back home.”
