Shopee recently partnered with leading digital services provider PLDT and its wireless unit Smart Communications, Inc. (Smart), to educate local sellers endorsed by the local government unit (LGU) of Talavera, Nueva Ecija through Pilipinas: Aahon and Babangon, a learning caravan created by PLDT and Smart to help MSMEs expand their livelihood opportunities through technology. For this session, PLDT and Smart trained attendees on how to effectively take photos for their business, while Shopee helped the MSMEs in attendance learn how they can grow further by taking their business online. A Shopee seller was also present to share his experience growing his enterprise on the platform.
Martin Yu, Director at Shopee Philippines, said “Here at Shopee, our goal is to make e-commerce accessible to Filipinos wherever they are in the country. We are glad to partner with PLDT and Smart in furthering this advocacy, and it was a privilege for us as well to train sellers endorsed by the LGU of Talavera, Nueva Ecija. We look forward to developing even more initiatives that will allow all businesses to succeed in the online space through our platform.”
