One of the things that the coronavirus 2019 pandemic made us realize is that we should always have plan B, especially in terms of source of living.
Due to the pandemic, the unemployment rate in the country has reached an all-time high with around 4.6 million jobless Filipinos in July. Though this has eased as compared to the unemployment rate in April, most Pinoys are still finding it hard to get back on their feet.
If you are among the Filipinos whose livelihood is affected by the pandemic and economic recession, Mekeni’s Home2Home Partners Program might be just for you.
Mekeni’s Home2Home Partners Program is a reseller program intended for those who wish to start their own home-based business. It was launched by Mekeni, one of the biggest food manufacturers in the country, to help Filipinos put up their own home-based business in this time of pandemic.
For as low as P1,500, you can kickstart your own Mekeni reseller business. All you have to do is sign up via Mekeni’s Facebook page (www.facebook/mekeniph). Your application will undergo verification and assessment, and in a week, you may already start your business.
“We all have a role to play amid the pandemic; and for us here at Mekeni, it is all about making sure that our communities are given the opportunity to flourish and thrive even in the most difficult times. We will never get tired of helping this new breed of Pinoy entrepreneurs achieve their aspirations,” Prudencio Garcia, Mekeni president quipped.
To date, Mekeni has many successful resellers nationwide. Through its Home2Home Partners Program, it has helped a lot of unemployed and temporarily displaced workers affected by the pandemic. The company tapped its distributors all over the country to serve the demand.
“During the pandemic, we are grateful to Mekeni because we are able to also help those who temporarily lost their jobs by giving them an alternative source of income,” said Shiela Alfons, exclusive distributor from Davao.
“Malaki ang naitulong ng Mekeni sa amin dahil ito ang aming pangunahing pinagkakakitaan. Bukod dito ay natutulungan pa naming magkaroon ng trabaho, dagdag kabuhayan at kita ang aming pamilya, kaibigan, at aming mga suki, at ngayon ang iba ay nahikayat na rin naming magbenta lalo na ngayong panahon ng pandemic,” added Jenalyn Silvestre of Tarlac.
Aside from individual resellers, Mekeni also looks into tapping dealers and wholesales to be able to cater to more interested resellers nationwide.
Aside from income security, Mekeni’s Home2Home Partners Program can also be a good donation option. If you are looking to help Filipinos pull through this pandemic too just like Mekeni, you can gift the package to a beneficiary. The help is more long term as what you are giving them is a chance and hope to start their own business.
“There is always something you can do to help others. With our Home2Home Partners Program, we hope that we can spark inspiration and motivation to go on despite the challenges we are facing,” Garcia added.
