Entrepreneurship truly took a hit during this long period of lockdown and pandemic. It’s been five months and while some are fortunate to work from home, others are left to deal with their financial losses and prolonged period of uncertainty.
Amidst this grim environment, multinational Unilever Philippines and Shopee are teaming up for the #BeautyThatCares sale on August 29-31 where up to 70% off on Unilever products are on offer. It’s all for a good cause as part of the proceeds will go to Mano Amiga – a non-profit organization which has a Skills for Success Grant Training Program.
Mano Amiga set up the training program to help microentrepreneurs, such as sari-sari store owners and online sellers, to start, sustain or scale their business. Through a
monetary grant to get them the necessary funding, and training courses focused on essentials of entrepreneurship, online selling and finance, the organization aims to support small local businesses and to help them get back on their feet in the new normal.
Small businesses covered by Mano Amiga’s program will also be given the opportunity to expand their trade online. As a partner for the #BeautyThatCares campaign, Shopee will onboard these small businesses onto their platform as marketplace sellers which will empower them with more sales and growth opportunities, reduce their operational costs and reach new customers.
“Our purpose is to create a positive impact for the people, for the planet and for the society. With the ongoing health crisis, we’d like to do our part to help fellow Filipinos who have been most affected, particularly small businesses struggling to keep afloat. We are bringing back the #BeautyThatCares sale this year, focusing our efforts on helping them,” says Dorothy Dee- Ching, Unilever Philippines’ Vice President for Beauty and Personal Care.
“We are so thankful Shopee has once again partnered with us for this initiative, and we are enjoining Filipinos to
take part in the sale for the benefit of Mano Amiga’s communities,” she added.
Ruoshan Tao, Head of Marketing at Shopee Philippines, adds, “We are excited to partner with Unilever to help small business owners get by during this challenging time. The #BeautyThatCares Campaign is in line with Shopee”s goal of helping MSMEs rebuild and grow their businesses online through education and development programs. Shopee will continue to partner with different brands to support, uplift, and encourage Filipino small businesses.”
