MyKuya is now active in San Pablo City in Laguna. The services super app launched its first Smart City in the area on May 29 in partnership with City Councilor Martin Gel Adriano together with MyKuya General Manager Serene Samuel and MyKuya Operations Manager Kyle Santos.
With MyKuya San Pablo City going active, businesses and government services in the area now go digital, paving the way for the city’s plans of transitioning into a full-fledged smart city.
This brings the app’s services like groceries, cleaning, deliveries, aircon repair, maintenance works to local residents. At the same time, San Pablo-based spas, restaurants, and barbershops are now available for possible job requests from local app users. MyKuya is also working to eventually add emergency government services in the area like fire trucks, ambulances, barangay assistance, vaccination scheduling, and more.
“We’re helping businesses get back on their feet, which should create invaluable job opportunities locally,” said Councilor Adriano. “Enabling small businesses to go digital is an integral step in building smart cities that remain competitive.”
MyKuya General Manager said, “We believe that the work we’re doing with San Pablo and the 3rd District of Laguna is truly the path to building a community that is self-sustaining and inclusive.”
MyKuya has gained popularity during the pandemic because of the benefits it provides to consumers, businesses and job seekers. Through the super app, consumers can hire an Ate or Kuya to perform errands like parcel delivery, grocery delivery, and even getting into bills payment queues. For business owners, the app serves as a platform to connect with customers digitally or even tap additional short-time manpower.
The campaign to help cities like San Pablo is influenced by the goals set by the Bounce Back PH movement—a social media initiative aiming to back local businesses in all industries especially MSMEs that have been affected by the ongoing pandemic.
MyKuya is aiming to bring its services to more cities nationwide. “From assisting service providers, cities, or even regions, we want people to know that MyKuya is here to help,” General Manager Samuel concluded.
