This case study highlights how the Government of the Philippines (GoP) responded to the pandemic with strong social protection measures. The government program that was created in March 2020 aims to provide cash assistance to 18 million households (over 75 percent of total households) in the country. This case study documents the lessons learned from the implementation of the program, focusing on the digital G2P (government to persons) payment delivery.
This report discusses why it is imperative to capitalize on this momentum in the wake of COVID-19 to ensure wider adoption and usage of digital payments, particularly among low-income women.
