MANILA, PHILIPPINES– On-demand service provider MyKuya introduces its new and unique offerings, including barber services in partnership with Felipe and Sons.
Through the partnership, MyKuya users can now hire a personal barber through the MyKuya app to give them a haircut or a shave at the comfort of their own home or office. They can also request the barber to give them a quick shoulder and head massage as part of the service.
For health and hygiene purposes, the MyKuya partner barbers will attend to requests wearing their set of personal protective equipment and bringing their own sanitized equipment.
As more and more Filipinos go back to their offices due to relaxed lockdown restrictions, MyKuya will be offering office assistant services. The company will be lending its helping hand to workers in charge of doing physical menial tasks in their workplaces so that they can spend more time doing high-level work.
Additionally, MyKuya will be providing L300 van services to respond to growing demand from their customers, especially business owners whose operations are flourishing amidst the pandemic.
”Our goal from the very start has always been to help Filipinos with their errands and other needs. With the pandemic still keeping people from doing what they need to do outside, we’re happy to be of help to them in any way we can,” MyKuya Founder Shahab Shabibi said.
MyKuya also partnered with several commercial establishments—such as SM Supermalls, Robinsons Mall, Ayala Malls, Ortigas Malls, and more—to bring them closer to more Filipinos who continue to stay indoors.
The company additionally rolled out assistant services specific for business owners, namely MotoToday and BizHelper, as many individuals today have turned to selling goods online to gain income.
Through the two services, business owners are given the opportunity to save time and costs when it comes to booking delivery services.
Aside from the additional services, MyKuya is expanding its business to cities outside Metro Manila such as Damariñas, Bacoor, and General Trias in Cavite, Lucena City in Quezon province, and Santa Rosa City in Laguna. It is also working on bringing its services available to cities in Zambales and Pangasinan.
In all these efforts, MyKuya is not only supporting its customers but its partners as well. With its goal of providing 1 million job opportunities by 2022, MyKuya is continuously hiring Kuyas and Ates, especially those who were laid off during the pandemic. At the beginning of the lockdown period, MyKuya hired more than 7,000 new Kuyas and Ates. As the company expands in other cities, Filipinos in the provinces will be given more chances to work and earn for their families.
“We’re happy being able to achieve so much in the past few months, but we won’t just stop there,” Shabibi noted, “We at MyKuya promise to do more as we believe we have the resources to help those in need during this difficult time. Together, we can weather this pandemic and enter the new normal strong.”
