Maya Bank Hits 650,000 Customer Milestone 3 Months After Launch

by September 14, 2022

Maya Bank announced that it has reached a 650,000-customer milestone just three months after launch and that it has P5 billion which is approximately US$89 million in deposit balance as of end-July 2022.

The bank launched its services to the public on 29 April 2022 after receiving approval from the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) to establish a digital bank in the Philippines in September 2021.

Maya’s ecosystem includes a consumer e-wallet app, an enterprise payment processing business, and an on-ground agent network. It has also introduced a lending feature for consumers and MSMEs on its app.

The digital bank’s crypto feature is licensed by the BSP, and deposits are insured by the Philippine Deposit Insurance Corporation (PDIC) for up to PHP500,000 per depositor.

Maya Bank’s parent company Voyager Innovations previously announced that it had closed a US$210 million round at a valuation of around US$1.4 billion which will be used towards building Maya Bank’s services.
