Smart business package for RP OFWs introduced

Millions of Filipinos continue to work overseas to help provide a better life for loved ones and to secure for themselves a comfortable, more stable retirement life in the future.
In the 2015 Global Pinoy Entrepreneurial Survey conducted by PLDT Global, majority of the Filipino respondents expressed their aspiration of owning a sustainable business to help augment their income and support their dependents in the country.
Results showed that the top three businesses that they would like to invest in are 1) e-loading stations; 2) food carts; and 3) water refilling stations.
This is why PLDT Global Corp., through its Smart world brand, has come up with a perfect gift this season to answer the wishes of our overseas Filipinos and their families — the Smart Negosyo Package.
The Smart Negosyo Package is a load retailer business for families of Filipinos working abroad.  It comes with a retailer SIM, mobile phone, retailer manual and retailer merchandise, that can be purchased for as low as $64 for kits with P2,000 worth of e-load, and up to $128 for kits with P5,000 worth of e-Load.
Overseas Filipinos can now purchase and also reload their Smart load retail kit online via the Smart World Store. They can pay directly online using a debit or credit card or pay in cash through the PayRemit outlets in UAE, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, etc.
Once the order is confirmed and paid for, the retailer kit will be delivered directly to the address in the Philippines provided by the buyer. For reload bundles, the reload amount will be credited to the retailer number provided.
The recipient of the retailer kit can already start selling load as soon as the load credit has been received by the account. Smart will then send regular reminders to the customer abroad to reload the retailer SIM via the Smart World Store.
“This special Negosyo package was designed with the overseas Filipinos in mind. We have proven over the years that the e-loading business is a sound business model, and also lucrative because the product being sold is like a basic commodity for most Filipinos.
This is a good investment that can empower Filipino expatriate workers and their families to shore up their income while working abroad,” said Kat Luna-Abelarde, president of PLDT Global Corp.
“With over 12 million overseas Filipinos celebrating the holiday season in the Middle East, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Singapore, Japan, United States and United Kingdom, this is a practical gift that they can share with their families in the Philippines,” added Abelarde.
The Smart World Store is an online portal that allows overseas Filipinos to buy gifts for their loved ones back at home, ranging from affordable negosyo packages, gift checks, to the latest gadgets at flexible and secure payment options.
