The current situation has turned home into an important space of comfort and protection, and has put mothers into the spotlight as frontliners of our homes. The role of mothers has never been more important and challenging especially with the whole family at home— always working tirelessly to provide the needs of the family, while also ensuring their safety. Whether your moms are at home everyday with the family or away working as a healthcare frontliner, a GrabFood delivery partner, or an essentials provider, they deserve recognition for all that they do.
As Filipinos celebrate Mother’s Day this year, Grab is honoring the “frontliners of our homes” who work tirelessly everyday to support their families amid the pandemic.
Andrea Tuason proves that the internet can be a stay-at-home mother’s key to earning. With her perseverance, and help from GrabExpress’ Madiskarteng Boss Club, Andrea Tuason started her online gift store “iFitmo” that offers products from fashion to technology items. “Halos ganoon pa din ‘yung business thanks to GrabExpress. Swerte kasi dahil dito accessible pa din ‘yung mga products ko sa mga customers kahit na may ECQ,” shared Andrea. [ENG: “Business still runs smoothly thanks to GrabExpress. Luckily it has helped us keep our products accessible especially during this ECQ.”] She’s still able to service her clients with the help of GrabExpress. And through this, she is able to provide for the needs of her child with special needs.
A FEMALE DELIVERY-PARTNER ON THE FRONTLINE
In a male-dominated industry, Lovella Tagalog puts her foot down as queen of the road. Based in Cebu, Lovella juggles her time by working both as a GrabExpress and GrabFood delivery rider-partner, and a mother. “Tama lang ang kita ngayon pero nakakaraos pa din, buti na lang at katulong ko ang partner ko na home-based. Bilang isang ina, (Nagpa)pasalamat ako kasi naiintindihan nila ang trabaho ko na nasa labas at wala sa bahay. Pinapaliwanag ko sa anak ko kung bakit ako wala, at naiintindihan naman niya,” shared Lovella. [ENG: “I’m earning enough for the family to get by. It’s also a good thing that I get help from my partner who’s home-based. As a mom, I’m thankful that my family is understanding of my work. I’ve explained to my child why I need to be outside at a time like this and he’s been very understanding.”]
Alicia Laqi’s story is an inspiration for men and women alike who want to venture into the food business. Starting from a humble jollijeep stall in Makati, Sisig Sa Rada has successfully become the top-of-mind name when you mention sisig, particularly for those living and working in Makati and BGC. In tandem with her husband, and supported by GrabFood, they were able to grow their business which is now a stable source of income for their family.
