Empowering Women: Gerly, Philippines.

Empowering Women: “My husband has been driving for Grab for a few years. When Grab Philippines launched the first series of Grab Misiskolar (Grab Academy for Wives), I was really interested. It’s a program where wives of Grab drivers can take courses on various subjects, and also learn how to handle and grow money. I attended a course on Shampoo and Bar (soap) Making. It was very interesting and I am now selling my products through my sister’s store. I’m happy that I can contribute and help my family with daily expenses. I’m also saving up for new investment opportunities.”

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.
