PROJECT: YOUR BEAUTY IS MY LIVELIHOOD: EMPOWERING FILIPINO WOMEN THROUGH BUSINESS AND SERVICE DESIGN
The project is an example of Social Business Innovation, which intends to create a business model for the Philippine company HBC, whose corporate purpose is to trade health and personal beauty products.
The student has devised a strategy with two objectives: to provide a new shopping experience for HBC customers and to provide employment opportunities to Filipino women, in collaboration with the AH Foundation.
In the first stage of the project, she conducted a research process through interviews with HBC workers and AH Foundation women consumers. Thanks to the research, she designed the proposal for a new service called Ganda Buhay, which lets customers receive their products at home through a custom web or mobile app.
For the next stage, she proposes a new business model based on providing employment opportunities for women, providing customized services to buy the products creating loyalty with the company. For the last stage, she creates a marketing strategy that includes proposals for brick-and-mortar stores with promotion of the company, pricing, and distribution of products.
