PadaLapit Lang with Smart Padala
Recently, Smart Padala launched a new campaign with Angel Locsin as it further strengthens its leadership in the remittance service industry. The new campaign aims to reinforce the brand message of Smart Padala, which is PadaLapit.
Based on the data from the first National Baseline Survey on Financial Inclusion released by the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas in 2015, it is estimated that on average, Filipinos take around 22 minutes to reach the nearest financial services touchpoint. It also costs an average of Php43 a roundtrip fare.
With 15,000 Smart Padala centers nationwide, there is a Smart Padala center in almost every municipality so Filipinos do not need to spend time and money to travel just to send or receive remittances. These centers include the recently launched Smart Padala International flagship stores that enable consumers to receive money from abroad.
