Office employee Noralyn Peralta earns an additional P19,000 per month from her three gaming units — a business venture she entered with a small initial investment only last February. But because business is doing well, she decided to add three more units to boost her extra income.
Her story is only one of many other inspiring stories at the ongoing Cyberya livelihood caravan powered by PLDT KaAsenso, the micro-entrepreneurship support arm of PLDT. Cyberya is an all-in Internet-rental business package which allows customers to surf the Internet for as low as P1.
It is targeted towards aspiring minigosyantes or micro-entrepreneurs who are looking for ways to augment their monthly household income.
?The Cyberya livelihood caravan aims to bring more Filipinos to the path of micro-entrepreneurship,? Patrick Tang, PLDT vice president and head of home voice solutions, said. ?Cyberya provides a relevant service that Filipinos across all ages need?the Internet. For hardworking entrepreneurial Filipinos, this presents a great all-in-one opportunity to earn extra income without having to set up a business from scratch.?
Cyberya is part of KaAsenso?s three pillars — connect, boost, and extras.
Under Connect, businesses are equipped with reliable landline and Internet connections while Boost complements more established minigosyos with tools and services for expanding their operations. Extras provide additional earning opportunities such as Cyberya which aspiring minigosyantes can avail of for a very low initial capital of P7,300. The all-in-one start-up package already includes high-speed Internet, the Cyberya PC unit, and free marketing materials to help promote start-up businesses.
The Cyberya livelihood caravans will be in key Metro Manila cities as well as Cavite, Bulacan, and Laguna. The caravan will also be visiting major areas in Mindanao including Davao and Cotabato.
