It is undeniable that many young athletes in the field of weightlifting were inspired with the achievements of Olympic gold medalist Hidilyn Diaz-Naranjo. One of them 18-year old Rosegie Ramos. Rosegie is a grade 10 student of Mampang National High School in Zamboanga.

Rosegie recently brought honor to the country by winning three gold medals at the Asian Youth and Junior Weightlifting Championships held at Tashkent City, Uzbekistan. She registered her best score in snatch (71 kg), clean and jerk (90 kg), and total (161 kg) in the Junior division category of the competition. Prior to this competition, she has also won bronze medal in the women's 49 kg category from the Southeast Asian Games held in Vietnam last May.

One of the challenges for Rosegie is balancing her studies as a student and her training as an athlete. That is why it's a big help for her when BDO Cash Agad became available in Zamboanga. It makes cash withdrawal easier and faster whenever she needs money.

"Nung wala pa po ang BDO Cash Agad dito, bumibiyahe pa po ako nang 30 minutes para lang makapunta sa town para makapag-withdraw. Minsan ginagabi pa po ako. Ngayon andito na ang BDO Cash Agad, nagpapasalamat po ako kay ate Hidilyn na hindi ko na kailangan bumiyahe ng 30 minutes, menos gastos po." said Rosegie.

Nowadays, Rosegie only needs to go to the Hidilyn Diaz Gym near her house in Mampang whenever she needs to withdraw cash. The training facility gym of Hidilyn is a BDO Cash Agad partner-agent. The country's pride had this built for weightlifters like Rosegie who dream of one day bring honor to the Philippines.

"Nabanggit nga ng coach ko na nagkaroon ng Cash Agad dito sa gym ni Ate Hidi. Napaka convenient po sa akin saka hindi delikado, five minutes away lang po sa amin pag naka motor ako," added Rosegie.

Rosegie also opened a savings account at BDO Network Bank in preparation for her future.

"Thirteen years old pa lang ako, sumasabak na 'ko sa mga weighlifting competition. Noong nagsimula na akong manalo, nakakapag-ipon na rin ako mula sa winnings ko. May ATM ako dahil National Team member ako. Nag-open na rin ako ng savings account sa BDO Network Bank. Gusto kong makapag-ipon para na rin sa future ko." said Rosegie.

By using ATM cards of BDO Unibank, BDO Kabayan Savings, BDO Network Bank, and other local banks, you can make withdrawal  at Cash Agad point-of-sale (POS) terminal located at the gym of Hidilyn Diaz and other establishments that are Cash Agad partner-agent like sari-sari store, water refilling stations, and mini-groceries. 

With Cash Agad, ATM cardholders don't need to travel far and spend money commuting just to withdraw money.
