Globe Telecom further beefs up its support for Filipino entrepreneurs and sari-sari store owners in the country by being a major participant in Puregold Price Club’s 12th Tindahan ni Aling Puring (TNAP) Sari-Sari Store Convention, which was held on May 24-28, 2017 at the World Trade Center in Pasay City.  

Showing its consistent support for the annual event, Globe showcased the latest products and offers for sari-sari store owners including Globe Prepaid and TM SIM cards, prepaid load cards, and Autoload MAX; Globe Postpaid’s ThePLAN; its newest lineup of apparel and digital connectors from Globe Lifestyle; Globe At Home’s Prepaid Home WiFi; and a suite of products for small-medium businesses from Globe myBusiness. Over the last eight years of the convention, Globe has offered its participants exclusive services that helped drive growth of their respective businesses.

In 2010, Globe launched the Aling Puring Super Suki SIM, a special multi-function SIM card exclusively available for Aling Puring members that enables them to receive text blast announcements and promos under special call and text rates.  With the SIM cards, they are also able to sell prepaid load as additional source of income.

A year later, Globe and Puregold forged an innovative partnership for an easy and convenient reloading channel that enables Globe and TM subscribers to buy prepaid load from any Puregold checkout counter via its point-of-sale (POS) technology.
