Empowering Entrepreneurs

Empowering Entrepreneurs: “I started my healthy catering business, EatGood, last year, after realising that finding nutritious food in Pontianak was difficult, despite rising demand for it. The first week of operation was the hardest period for our business as we received a lot of complaints from our customers because of delays in delivery. GrabExpress simplifies and accelerates the delivery process. We have managed to overcome our initial challenges and today, we have two employees preparing up to 80 orders every day with a total turnover of IDR50 million (USD5,000) per month!” – Julia Lim, Indonesia

COVID-19 has dealt an unprecedented blow to the tourism industry, affecting the livelihoods of millions of workers. One of them was Komsan, an assistant chef in a luxury hotel based in the Srinakarin area.

As the number of tourists at the hotel plunged, he decided to sign up as a GrabFood delivery-partner to earn an alternative income. Soon after, the hotel ceased operations.

Komsan has viewed this change through an optimistic lens, calling it the perfect opportunity for him to embark on a fresh journey after his previous job. Aside from GrabFood deliveries, he now also picks up GrabExpress jobs. It can get tiring, having to shuttle between different locations, but Komsan finds it exciting. And mostly, he’s glad to get his income back on track.
