MANILA, PHILIPPINES – Just when entrepreneurs had begun to pick up the pieces following a tough year caused by the pandemic, they were dealt with another fierce blow when Typhoon Odette ripped through the country and wiped out six regions, leaving thousands of families homeless and businesses crumbling.
Keeping true to its commitment as every Filipino entrepreneur’s trusted digital partner, Globe Business is extending comfort and assistance in the form of rebates and recovery offers to help micro, small, and medium enterprises in Odette-ravaged areas bounce back from devastation.
“We recognize the extraordinary challenges and the daunting recovery that many of our Filipino MSMEs face and the assistance they need in the aftermath of Typhoon Odette. With this, we are providing them with a range of support to give them, their families and businesses hope and the extra push to rise from this difficult situation,” said KD Dizon, Globe Business MSME Group Head.
Here are Globe Business’ offers to ease the burden on small business owners who continue to struggle with the damage caused by the typhoon—from poor access to basic services to no connectivity that limits their ability to stay in touch with their customers:
One-time service rebate
Getting disconnected or paying for the next bill should be the least of customers’ concerns for now as Globe has suspended system-initiated disconnections since January in areas where signal and connectivity are still down or pending restoration. Globe will also stretch payment due date and will give a one-time service rebate for all subscriptions affected by the typhoon. Depending on the billing cycle, customers can expect the reimbursement to reflect within their next two billings.
Free use of Multi-channel Messaging Platform
To help businesses get back on their feet and make them more resilient, Globe is giving its loyal customers free access to M360, a web-based multi-channel messaging platform that allows them to reach their customers whenever and wherever through branded text blasts and Facebook Messenger.
The platform adds credibility to businesses and improves brand image as it allows you to use your business name as the sender ID. It also lets customers feel safe to open and read official business messages.

By signing up for this exclusive loyalty program, business owners can get access to top-notch digital solutions and extensive network support that will help them navigate through difficult times.

“We want our MSME partners to bounce back strong and build a resilient business with the right combination of digital solutions and support. We will be with them every step of the way,” said Dizon.
