The B2B arm of the country’s leading ICT and digital services provider recently formalized a partnership with the City Government of Mandaluyong.

We are glad to partner with the Mandaluyong City government to help arm its workers and citizens with PayMaya as a tool to help them participate in the growing digital economy," added Orlando B. Vea, President and CEO at PayMaya Philippines. PayMaya is the digital financial arm of PLDT and Smart's Voyager Innovations.
