Globe Business Package recipient Jocelyn Soronio of Barangay Bagongon, Compostela shows off her brand new cellular phone, being a Globe partner in auto-load retailing. Jocelyn is one of the 50 Pantawid Pamilya beneficiaries from the towns of Compostela, Monkayo, Montevista, New Bataan and Laak who were identified through the DSWD Sustainable Livelihood Program to engage with Globe.

“I load my retailer SIM card at the Poblacion loading station. Having this kind of business is really good because the money that we earn from our auto-load retailing business helps us in augmenting our daily expenditures. For every 10-peso load, I earn 2.50 pesos.”

Another recipient Phoebe Rodio from Barangay Lagab who uses a Touch Mobile retailer SIM is happy to report that with her earnings, she can readily buy her children’s needs.

After receiving the auto-load business package from Globe, Gerlie Fernandez of Barangay Aurora was able to help her husband earn more for their family. “I am very happy to be one of the recipients because this is really a blessing for our family. While I earn I am able to attend to the needs of my children plus I don’t have to leave the house to sell loads as my customers just come to me.”

The Globe Auto-load Retailer Package contains a brand new mobile phone, a retailer SIM card and a store signage. Globe also provided orientation on Electronic-Load to the beneficiaries.

Earlier, Globe has also partnered with 40 Pantawid Pamilya beneficiaries in Montevista, Monkayo, New Bataan, Laak and Compostela. This project aims at helping typhoon-affected families start a small business and augment their family income.

As it regularly renders technical assistance to its partner-retailers, Globe has been providing telecommunication support to the residents of the two ‘Pablo’ hard-hit provinces of Compostela Valley and Davao Oriental.

Meanwhile, the Movement of P-Noy Active Members for Good Governance, Inc. (PMGG), a non-government organization based in Metro Manila will soon engage Pantawid Pamilya beneficiaries of Barangay Mahan-ob, Baganga, Davao Oriental in mat and basket weaving.

Through the DSWD livelihood program and BELA (Baganga Entrepreneurial Livelihood Association), PMGG will also generate livelihood for identified families as it plans to put up poultry and livestock centers as well as initiate production of bananas, corn, durian and mushrooms in the area.

Using the Community-Driven Enterprise Development (CDED) Process, DSWD Project Development Officers are now identifying available resources in the community and the possible market of this upcoming business venture. (DSWD)
