Check out some of the inspiring Filipino sellers highlighted in 12.12 #TatakPinoy: Shopee Celebrates Local:
Paula Tabije, owner of ABUBOT_PH
When Paula lost her job back in 2018, she needed to find a new way to generate income. She tapped into the market of teens and young adults, and started selling on Shopee ready-to-wear clothing locally made in Taytay, Rizal. From running operations in a 20sqm room, she has now been able to open up a warehouse and purchase several properties for her family.
Raven Gomez, owner of toyhuntersPH
Raven discovered her passion in entrepreneurship at a young age, when she was selling stickers and other items to her classmates. She set up her shop on Shopee in 2014, where she sells children’s toys. Today, she has her own staff to help her run her business as she continues to grow her business on Shopee.
Jenna Indigado, owner of Small Wonders Page
Jenna decided to become a full-time Shopee seller in 2018 when their farm was hit with African Swine Fever, and she needed to find a stable source of income. As a mother of three, she wanted to reach fellow parents and started selling baby’s essentials and clothing. Today, her online business continues to grow with the help of her staff of 200 seamstresses and 70 packing assistants. They proudly sell Bulacan-made products created by the people in the local community.
Erwin Ygot, owner of P. Motozone
For Erwin and his wife, their customers have always been at the heart of what they do. Even with minimal capital, the Davao-based couple transitioned to selling on Shopee to give their buyers a safe and convenient way to purchase motorcycle needs.
Ira Cruz and Ireen Araullo, owners of UNIQ.MNL
A month before the lockdown, siblings Ira Cruz and Ireen Araullo launched UNIQ.MNL on Shopee where they currently sell clothing items made by members of the local community in Taytay, Rizal. After finding success in manufacturing and selling PPEs and facemasks, they started to offer trendy clothing that was well received by Filipinos.
Maria Sheena Campaner-Kweon, owner of yourDailyDose
Bacolod-based entrepreneur and pharmacist Maria Sheena Campaner-Kweon started her Shopee journey in 2019 when she was on the brink of bankruptcy. With limited sales at first, Maria and her team at yourDaily Dose persisted and utilized their earnings to invest in Shopee’s ads and programs. From barely making ends meet, she now has a larger warehouse in Bacolod City to cater to her growing customer base.
