AF Payments, a partnership between the First Pacific Co. Ltd. and Ayala Group, is giving commuters another option to reload their Beep cards.

Beep cards are stored-value cards used to pay for public transportation fares in MRT and point-to-point (P2P) buses.

“We are delighted to be the newest loading partner of AF Payments which further aids their commitment to provide Filipino commuters more accessible avenues to top up their Beep cards,” said M Lhuillier president and CEO Michael L. Lhuillier.

With more than 3,000 branches across the country, M Lhuillier offers various financial services such as Kwarta Padala, quick cash loan, bills payment, insurance, money exchange, ML Wallet, ML Express, ML Moves, and telco and online TV loading services.

The collaboration between the two groups allows M Lhuillier to maximize its presence in high-traffic areas, such as train stations and public markets, serving the huge customer base of Beep which now has nine million cardholders.

“M Lhuillier continues to offer valuable services to our clients. We are consistently working with other companies and organizations as we continue to be the go-to center of Filipinos in terms of their financial needs,” Lhuillier added.
