"We are proud to have partnered with PayMaya to access their nationwide customer base, to provide the DA5 payment solutions. Together we will work towards our shared goal of providing seamless financial services to the Philippine population which is largely unbanked or underbanked . This DA5 and PayMaya technology partnership now allows Filipinos throughout the Country (representing a market of nearly 110 million people) to utilize DA5 directly to load funds to PayMaya," stated Raymond Babst, CEO of DA5.
These joint initiatives further support the goals of the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas ("The Philippines Central Bank"), to increase the share of digital payments to 50% of all retail transactions and expand financial inclusion to 70 percent of Filipino adults by 2023, as part of its Digital Payments Transformation Roadmap 2020-2023.
In a recent interview with inquirer.net, PayMaya President Shailesh Baidwan highlighted the important role that, "collaborations such as this will play in the future of digital financial services. This radical shift to cashless for the Philippines will only continue accelerating in 2021 as we offer more services and forge more enterprise partnerships that are relevant for many consumers."
"PLDT, a major telecom in the Philippines, alongside of Kravis Kohlberg Roberts ("KKR"), a Global investment firm, Tencent (the China-based internet giant), and IFC, (a member of the World Bank Group) have acted as the principal investment group of Voyager, according to FINTECHNEWS Philippines.
