MANILA, Philippines - A Filipina healthcare specialist is the latest millionaire of Mashreq Qatar.

The Gulf Times reported that Herminia Mescallado won the one million Qatari Riyals prize money from the savings program MashreqMillionaire.

Mescallado won the prize during the program’s draw last December.

She received the cheque from Mashreq Qatar's head of retail banking, Niranjan Mendonca, during a ceremony held at the bank's Gold Centre. The event was also attended by the OFW's family.

Mescallado moved to Doha ten years ago and is currently working as a radiographer at the Women's Hospital.

Since its launch in 1995, the MashreqMillionaire program has produced over 300 millionaires.

Those eligible for the monthly draws are customers who save by investing in fully-encashable MashreqMillionaire certificates each valued as QR1,000.
