With the goal of empowering the backbone of the Philippine economy, the micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs), which comprise 99% of the country’s businesses, Globe Business expanded its digital offerings with GPlan Biz and GFiber Biz.
“Globe Business seeks to go beyond the surface by helping MSMEs with innovations that accelerate business growth, expertise that guides businesses forward, and unparalleled care that supports their journeys, so they can achieve more business breakthroughs,” said KD Dizon, MSME group head, Globe Business.
According to the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), MSMEs help in reducing unemployment by creating jobs for the growing labor force, making up 63% of the country’s total manpower.
“We see our MSMEs as modern-day heroes who play a critical role in the country’s economy. That’s why we believe that if we help them succeed, we also help our nation succeed,” said Ernest Cu, president and CEO of Globe.
Globe Business started offering enterprise-grade connectivity plans to enable MSMEs to jumpstart or accelerate their digital transformation, especially at a time when almost all businesses have turned to digitalization.
