Since Grab’s entrance into the Philippines, it has steadfastly lived out its commitment to provide everyday convenience and assistance to Filipinos, from consumers, merchant-partners, to its community of driver- and delivery-partners.
And much like how Grab’s community tirelessly weaves through roads to bring Filipinos’ needs and wants closer to them, so has Grab come to them to help uplift their livelihoods – all throughout June and July, Grab visited Cebu, Pampanga, Baguio, Davao, Iloilo, and Bacolod to be closer to the 3,595 driver- and delivery-partners who were offered the Purchase Financing Loan Program, led by GrabFinance, during the “Byahe Na Tayo!” caravan.
Through GrabFinance’s Fuel Card program, delivery and driver- partners were provided with Shell Fuel Cards to better cope with challenges brought about by the rising fuel prices.
Global Key Account Manager of Shell Philippines Joseph Raval shares, “We are happy and honored to have been GrabFinance’s official fleet card partner for the past year. Our fleet card distribution event in Cebu highlights our companies’ strong partnership and we look forward to further supporting GrabFinance’s aspirations for many years to come.”
GrabFinance, together with its partners Samsung Philippines and VSTECS, the country’s leading ICT distributor known for its cloud and data center services, also launched its Purchase Financing Loan program in the various cities, enabling qualified driver- and delivery-partners to avail of new Samsung smartphones on installments.
“Grab’s Purchase Financing Program is very helpful especially because all of us benefit. Before, it was only a cash loan; but now we’re given a cellphone and even a free tumbler – Grab’s assistance is really one of a kind. So even if there will be tough days at work, we can keep fighting,” shared one delivery-partner who received a phone from Grab, Samsung and VSTECS.
During the rollout in the different cities, GrabFinance and Samsung / VSTECS gave away prizes to lucky Grab partners – including a JBL Bluetooth speaker, JBL earphones, Samsung products, brand new GrabFood Insulated Bags, and Grab merchandise including a tumbler and shirt!
Head of Grab Financial Group Philippines Martha Borja shares, “Despite the economic hardships many of our kababayans are facing, GrabFinance will continuously support the growth and success of our partners throughout the country: through honest, responsible, and meaningful financing services. With many of our kababayans in need of better access to credit and financing services, I am optimistic that GrabFinance will continue to play a pivotal role in helping our kababayans better navigate the pressures of our current economic situations, and empower everyday entrepreneurs to becoming the heroes of the new digital-first economy.”
Through these programs powered by partnerships with Samsung and VSTECS as well as Shell Pilipinas, qualified delivery- and driver-partners can purchase Samsung smartphones on deferred installments at 0% interest, or be provided their own Shell Fuel cards.
