On-demand services startup MyKuya announced it will be expanding its services to Cavite, Pangasinan, Quezon, and Zambales. The app will be available first mostly in their bigger cities, concentrating in places that are likeliest to see the highest demand.
Services that will be available will vary but provincial users may have access to many of the app’s most in-demand services.
The MyKuya team hopes that the move can pave the way for another expansion into the Visayas and Mindanao. Their expansion is also part of its new franchise program, where the company aims to support businesses by giving them a platform to augment and maximize the efficiency of their employees.
The MyKuya app allows users to hire service personnel for about any task. They could be a handyman, a house cleaner, a business helper, or a personal shopper, among others.
Amid the pandemic, MyKuya held an online job fair that saw a registration of more than 1,000 job seekers in 45 minutes. The startup was able to onboard more 7,000 individuals, many of whom are contractual workers that came from hard-hit industries like restaurants and tourism.
“Here at MyKuya, we have always believed in providing meaningful employment,” said Dennis Bunye, country head, MyKuya. “We are aiming at creating one million job opportunities in the Philippines by 2022.”
