In a noteworthy celebration of the Philippines' rich cultural tapestry, AF Payments Inc. (AFPI), the pioneering provider of contactless payment solutions in the country, has unveiled a groundbreaking collaboration with the National Museum. Introducing the National Museum beep™ cards marks a historic milestone for AFPI and a testament to the company's commitment to preserving and promoting the nation's heritage.

The National Museum beep™ cards are not just payment tools; they are artistic masterpieces in their own right. Featuring the stunning designs of four iconic National Museum structures and showcasing exhibits from acclaimed artists, these cards are a visual homage to the diverse cultural legacy of the Philippines. Notable works such as the Lualhati sculpture by National Artist Guillermo Tolentino and the Manunggul Jar, a National Cultural Treasure, add a touch of prestige to these everyday items.

This release is timely, aligning with National Cooperative Month and the Museums and Galleries Month, initiated by former President Corazon Aquino. By doing so, AFPI demonstrates a keen awareness of the importance of raising national consciousness and appreciation for the country's cultural heritage—a mission that goes beyond mere business interests.

Jonathan Moreno, President and CEO of AF Payments Inc. expressed his enthusiasm for this collaboration, emphasizing its role in fostering a sense of nationalism within the community. The decision to partner with the National Museum showcases AFPI's dedication to supporting government initiatives, contributing to the broader digitalization agenda in the Philippines.

The collaboration doesn't just end with the commemorative cards; it extends to the commuting experience of Filipinos. By making contactless and micropayment systems more accessible, AFPI is enhancing convenience and contributing to the broader goal of advancing the nation's digitalization agenda. The partnership with the National Museum Employees' Multi-Purpose Cooperative further solidifies the collaboration's dual impact—preserving cultural heritage and improving the daily lives of Filipinos.

For customers, the National Museum beep™ cards are not just a piece of history but a practical and convenient way to navigate the bustling urban landscape. With a nominal cost of P400 each and an initial load of P50, these cards open doors to seamless transactions in various retail and transport services, emphasizing their versatility and practicality.

AF Payments Inc.'s collaboration with the National Museum transcends the business realm. It is a heartfelt endeavor to weave the threads of national pride, culture, and progress into the fabric of everyday life. As Filipinos embrace the National Museum beep™ cards, they not only carry a piece of their cultural heritage but also contribute to a vision of a more connected and digitally empowered Philippines. Kudos to AFPI and the National Museum for this exemplary fusion of tradition and innovation.
