Micro enterprises comprise 89.5% of the country's business sector. As much as we want to always have perfect weather, we are the most vulnerable when it comes to environmental disasters. The climate is changing, and those who have not been usually been hit by typhoons now have it regularly and that means we have to be ready. We have to be resilient against disasters and that takes a lot of things to work. When disaster strikes, products can't be delivered, equipments get damaged, there are delays in payments, loss of clients, people cancel orders and workers don't get to work. It would not only take a hit physically, but on the economy. Planning is vital, but without related training micro, small and medium enterprises wouldn't survive and we have to all adopt to disaster resilence trainings from successful programs and look into how we could strengthen businesses by arming them with it.
During the Disaster Resilience forum where I was invited by Cebuana Lhullier, their President and CEO Jean Henry Lhullier mentions "The country has been affected by natural disasters and has bothered the lives of 80% of the local economy. We need to work together to inform, empower and protect millions of Filipinos that are in the midst of these disasters. This is our second year on the Disaster Resilience forum and we want to reach more vulnerable sectors in the society so they become financially included and protected. This is part of Cebuana Lhullier's advocacy which we have started in 2016 tied in with our products like Alagang Cebuan Plus Gold (launched last year), Cebuana Alerto App and National Pilipino Protektado Day which aims to provide one million FREE micro insurance coverage to Filipinos across the country."
