MANILA, Philippines – Did you know that 66% of Filipinos don’t have any savings, according to a report by the World Bank Group?
GCash, the country’s premier fintech company – a joint venture of Ant Financial, Globe Telecom, and Ayala Corporation – also found out that this percentage includes professionals like HR managers, finance officers, call center agents, and art directors who receive regular monthly salaries.
That’s why on October 31, GCash wants to help Filpinos realize the value of saving not just for themselves but for the country’s economy as well by starting the first ever World Savings Day celebration in the Philippines.
