MINDING MY OWN BUSINESSJune 9, 2022
But armed with “diskarte,” resourcefulness, and creativity, the jobless sectors were able to muster courage and rise from the big challenge by launching their own businesses! It may sound ironic to venture into a business at this time, but many stories prove that this is indeed possible. Just leave it to the Pinoys to display resiliency.
So what could be popular businesses this year?
Obviously, the old reliable food business remains at the top of the list. Pinoys are definitely food lovers that is why even the ubiquitous “lugaw” or “tapsi” will continue to sell. The food business can take on the form of a stall, a virtual kitchen or even the now very popular food delivery service.
As an offshoot of the pandemic, the majority shifted to digital or online to live their everyday lives. That’s why online businesses, notably selling, have become very popular even to the masa. Even fitness classes and personal training have migrated from face-to-face to online nowadays.
Related to this trend is the need for new mobile phone units, gadgets and computer hardware. Needless to say, someone has to repair them and probably even do home visits to conveniently maintain them.
The “plantitos and plantitas” have remained strong and this remains to be a good business prospect. The list goes on and the would-be entrepreneur needs to explore the current needs of the Pinoys and offer solutions to them.
But wait! Did you know that M Lhuillier can support your new business idea through its financial services?
For one, they offer the leading remittance service called ML Kwarta Padala through its reliable technology-based system. The service now has an expanded network of branches nationwide and continues to reinforce its strong partner networks abroad.
In 2017, the ML Wallet app was introduced that allows its users to do a lot of financial services all through their smartphones --- send and receive money, buy eLoad, and pay bills. The app was designed to serve the financial needs of those who do not have access to banks and other financial institutions.
Also a few years before the pandemic, M Lhuillier has already offered logistics retailing called ML Moves to serve as the extended business center of their third-party logistics partners. The company serves as a drop-off and pick-up center for both walk-in and e-commerce transactions.
That’s how M Lhuillier actively supports the financial needs of your new business to let you focus on other important operational matters while allowing you to track your financial transactions.
Sa M Lhuillier, MLaki ang potential mong mag succeed sa new business mo!
