Makatizen Card Project
The Makatizen Card program is an initiative of the Hon. Mayor Mar-len Abigail S. Binay. As a City Government-issued Unified Multipurpose Identification Card, it is a secure and validated proof of identity that both the cardholder and the City Government can rely on. It shall become the sole card needed to transact with Makati City Hall inclusive of the availment of the City’s various social services.
Apart from its identification feature, it is designed to enhance the cardholder’s financial agility. Capable of accepting cash-in transactions via the existing networks of iBayad and G-Cash, it is also welcome wherever MasterCard is honored. This is in addition to its capacity to draw cash from various ATMs. Furthering the value of the Card is a loyalty and rewards program aimed precisely at Makatizen Card holders.
While the Card itself is a pioneering development in LGU-issued ID cards, an equally revolutionary innovation of the Makatizen Card program is its birthing of a corresponding cashless ecosystem that opens opportunities to enterprises of all scales. The access of micro and small enterprises to this ecosystem underscores inclusion as one of the program’s concrete objectives.
