GCASH and RBAP’s mobile phone banking initiative – finalist for this year’s MMT Awards

Mobile Money Transfer (MMT) Awards, the world’s first mobile money awards, recently announced the finalists for this year’s awarding ceremonies. Among them were Globe’s GCASH and its partnership with the Rural Bankers Association of the Philippines (RBAP) in providing mobile phone banking services to thousands of low income households in the Philippines.
Four finalists for each of the MMT Award’s six categories were chosen from several entries from all over the world. The GCASH-RBAP partnership was shortlisted for the “Achievement in Financial Inclusion” category, which recognizes an MMT service provider (operator, bank or microfinance institution) that has made a real difference to the unbanked in its country of operation, bringing about tangible social and economic improvement. Among the other finalists in this category were Safaricom – M-PESA, EKO Financial Services, and the EasyPaisa – Telenor & Tameer Bank partnership. GCASH was also named as finalist for the “Best IMT Programme” category. The other categories were “Best MMT Entrant of the Year”, “Best Bank-led MMT Project”, “Best Operator-led MMT Project”, and “Most Inventive Marketing Campaign”.
The awarding will be held during the upcoming MMT Global Conference in Dubai, United Arab Emirates on October 24-27. It will be another big gathering of MMT practitioners from all over the world, like the Asia-Pacific Conference held in Manila last December and the MMT Summit held in Dubai in October last year.
