With this, GCash and IKON aim to address the needs of the global Filipino community, providing them with a secure and convenient way to manage their finances while enjoying the app’s various services, including sending money to the Philippines, paying bills, purchasing mobile load and more.

As part of the partnership, GCash will also educate departing OFWs on the importance of digital proficiency and how they can achieve their financial goals and support their family back home through the app. Additionally, GCash and IKON will conduct a financial literacy program to extend their support to 2.33 million OFWs.

Moreover, OFWs set to leave the country can also have access to exclusive services offered by IKON via the GCash app. 

“We recognize the hard work and sacrifices of OFWs and their big contribution to our economy. Through our partnership, Filipinos can find more career opportunities at IKON via the GJobs feature of the app. They can also access GLoans and experience more convenient transactions with the recruitment agency as one of its partner merchant billers,” said GCash International General Manager Paul Albano.

He also shared that the partnership will allow users to access a wide digital library of relevant and informative content from IKON via Pinoy Channel, from tips on adjusting to life while working abroad to financial management tips and helpful tailor-fit hacks for OFWs.
