#GCashStories: Inspiring Stories That Gives Us Hope

My job as a financial advisor and St. Peter Life Plan agent gives me the opportunity to meet people from different walks of life. Every time I present our services, my clients can easily relate to it. They even share their experiences, especially of losing a loved one. Our company continuously innovates to address the needs of our clients. During the pandemic, the company launched an online platform where they can purchase memorial plans and pay their existing plans, that way clients don't have to go to the branch. GCash is one of the payment options at St. Peter e-Store. As a sales agent and advisor, the online payment facility makes my job easier so I can give time to other important things.

More than just an e-wallet

More than just a Finance Super App, GCash has features that have customers to transfer money, making it easier to provide support and financial assistance whenever needed. To highlight the connections that have been strengthened through its services, GCash recently launched #GCashStories. The series highlights stories of hope and progress, turning them into inspirational conversations. The first short film featured the story of Cocoy Rubio, who became a small business owner with the help of GCash’s different services after losing his job due to the pandemic. Thanks to GLoan, Cocoy was able to start his own business and make the necessary transactions that helped him succeed.

Now, a second film tells us the true story of Ate Alma, a photocopy operator in a university and a family breadwinner, who lost her home due to typhoon flooding. Directed by Antoinette Jadaone, this chapter in #GCashStories pulls at heartstrings and proves how technology not only makes daily transactions easier, but also provides an accessible way to genuinely lend a helping hand.

After learning that Ate Alma’s home was severely damaged due to flooding, university students took it upon themselves to start a fundraising initiative powered by GCash. Spreading the news through social media, students and graduates sent their donations to Ate Alma through GCash’s Send Money feature, which allowed volunteers to donate in real time and from wherever they were - straight to Ate Alma’s GCash wallet. Even alumni of different graduating classes who remembered Ate Alma fondly were able to participate from wherever they were. In the end, Ate Alma’s community was able to raise enough money to purchase essential goods for her and her family, making the road to recovery after the typhoon that much easier.

The inspiring story of Ate Alma

"Sa totoo lang napakalaking tulong sa akin ng GCash talaga. Hindi ako makapaniwala kasi first time lang nangyari sa akin. Thank you talaga sa GCash,” says Ate Alma. "Sobrang nagulat ako, hindi ko akalain na ganoon karami agad ang dumating. Isipin mo naging 100,000 agad ang dumating sa GCash ko. Talagang patuloy silang naghulog sa GCash hanggang nabuo yung bahay namin."

Send Money allows GCash users to quickly transfer funds from one account to any of the other 79 million. Whether through a unique QR code or the user’s GCash number, money is safely transferred instantly. What’s more, those who receive the transfer can easily make cashless purchases with GCash payments, or even to Buy Load, Pay Online and more. Cashing in to transfer is easy, too, with multiple options available. Users can Cash In from over 70 online banks, 650,000 over-the-counter partners or through 4,000 cash in machines nationwide.

“#GCashStories is everyone’s story,” Neil Trinidad says. “And this campaign aims to turn our moments into movements. GCash is doing more than highlighting #GCashStories that have changed people’s lives. They’ve taken the campaign further and have tapped several non-government organizations in order to help solve real-world problems. The e-wallet has partnered up with ABS-CBN Lingkod Kapamilya Foundation and Caritas Manila, where proceeds will go to families in need of disaster relief, much like Ate Alma’s.

Watch and be inspired by the story of Ate Alma and the community that rallied behind her here. Stay tuned for other upcoming #GCashStories by following GCash’s official social media pages.
