Siglo equips, empowers, and uplifts the grassroots Filipinos by turning them into technopreneurs, or “negosyantechs”, which in turn also promotes entrepreneurship as an effective way of creating more value for society. These micro-entrepreneurs engage in prepaid credit reloading services, selling credits from all of the major telecommunications networks in the Philippines, such as Globe, Smart, Sun, and their respective subsidiaries. Other technology-based services, such as application generation, bills payment, remittances, and e-commerce, also enable them to earn commissions that can lead to a more sustainable living.
Suppliers help build and grow the Siglo ecosystem and community by providing their products and services that can be sold or availed through mobile technology. Their products and services do not have to be technology-related per se, as long as they can use technology to contribute to the online marketplace. Chief among the suppliers are the telecommunications companies whose prepaid reloading services are sold by technopreneurs, but also range from mobile banking or payment services to e-commerce.
