DITO launches exciting new Prepaid Promo 'Level-Up' Socials'

DITO Telecommunity introduces DITO Level-Up Socials, an all-new mobile prepaid Data promo packed with big data allocation designed for Facebook, Messenger, Instagram, Threads, and WhatsApp usage.

One may argue that social media is the new poster boy for modern communication.

For instance, we always access our Facebook and Instagram to share life updates and interact with the world around us. Be it a fun travel getaway, a new achievement unlocked, or daily routines at home, we curate our feeds with IG-worthy photos, post stories showing our day, and create aesthetic reels to share our best moments and life happenings. Moreover, we also use these social apps to promote our businesses, support causes, and catch up on the latest news and trends.  

Staying in touch with family and friends has also been easier through instant messaging apps like Messenger and WhatsApp. We bond over group chats by sending funny videos and memes while video calling our best friends to share the latest chika, making socializing more fun, faster, and convenient.

51% of women-led SMEs surveyed in the Philippines experience increased revenue after accepting digital payments

Visa, a global leader in digital payments, conducted a survey on small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs) in the Philippines. Findings show that 51% of women-led SMEs and 56% of micro-businesses experienced revenue growth with digital payments adoption. Given women constitute over half of Asia's population and SMEs' vital role in the economy, maximizing women's economic potential could add $89 billion annually to the Asia Pacific economy including in the Philippines.

SMEs are crucial for  economic growth in the Philippines, with more than a million Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) in the country. The Philippines’ Department of Trade and Industry data show that 99.5% of businesses in the country are MSMEs with almost 50% of them in wholesale and retail trade, generating 65% of total employment. Furthermore, the Asian Development Bank estimated that MSMEs contribute around 36% of the country’s GDP[1].

The Visa study found that managing businesses has become easier for 72% of the surveyed SMEs in the Philippines. Wallets, predominantly GCash, dominate as the main provider of digital payment for SMEs, especially those that are female-led (61%) who were surveyed in the Philippines. Visa has partnered with GCash to introduce the new GCash Card – giving millions of unbanked Filipinos access to the benefits of owning a payment card.

FedEx is fully embedded in the e-commerce ecosystems of China and Japan and has used its experience to develop the handbooks which are available for download from the FedEx website. Each e-book includes:

Visa supports women-owned SMEs and youths in Southeast Asia with digital and financial skills

Visa, a global leader in payment solutions, is committed to promoting digital and financial inclusion by equipping women and youth in Southeast Asia with essential digital and financial skills, to foster sustainable growth and pave the way for long-term success. An OECD report[1] found that rural communities, women, and certain ethnic minority groups face barriers to realizing the full uptake of digital options. Many frequently encounter growth hurdles due to cultural and institutional obstacles, coupled with a preference for informal financing.

Southeast Asia's young population, who constitute nearly a third of Southeast Asia, along with the region's SMEs and MSMEs, which constitute 99% of businesses, are key to economic growth. Visa is aiding this progress by enhancing digital and financial literacy for women SME owners and young individuals. In 2023, Visa digitally enabled 10 million SMEs in Asia Pacific. Visa Foundation has committed over $47M in the region, which has helped support two million women-led SMEs and sustain 500,000 jobs, and recently pledged $100M to APEC economies over five years.
