How exactly, you might ask?

Here’s a thing or two that might interest you, the same way it interests me.

What does KALESA do?

 

KALESA helps both the indigent and financially-able Filipinos to be entrepreneurial thru distribution and selling.

KALESA sells different products. From the distribution and selling is where both the distributors and the beneficiaries or KALESA ambassadors earn.

KALESA’s means to curb poverty is through social entrepreneurship. To understand more about the condition of the Philippines, here is a quick look.

Current models of the KALESA e-Cart can carry up to 600 kilogram of goods. It runs on battery-power and can travel up to 60 kilograms per battery set. Each cart has two sets to make it 120 kilometers of roving range.

The technology of the KALESA makes it a thing of the future for RETAIL and DISTRIBUTION system in the country.

Best of all, it also makes it really cool for advertiser to post their brands, since each KALESA e-Cart is a looker.

So how does KALESA help?

 

KALESA Beneficiaries

 

The organization selects from the poor citizens of a barangay pre-selected by the local church and local government unit. From there, KALESA trains the eager and qualified residents. KALESA distribution center is nearly located to be beneficiaries of what are called KALESA Ambassadors.

Each KALESA Ambassador earns in proportion to the amount of the goods he or she sells using the assigned KALESA e-Cart.

Two KALESA Ambassadors benefit from one KALESA e-Cart.

It is close to saying that a KALESA distribution center with 10 carts can help, at least 50 individuals, or 50 additional families being able to have another shot at earning decent living.

But wait, how about the other Filipinos who want to do business through KALESA?

 

KALESA Distributorship

 

Now, if you want to have your very own KALESA distribution center, then, here’s your chance to have a retail and distribution business while helping people in your own community.

If you’re an OFW, government or private company employee, or just entrepreneurial, then you can venture in KALESA distribution center.

A KALESA distribution center is ideal to set-up in at least a 100-sqm property. This size is sufficient for a warehouse and mini-store for walk-ins.

The rights to operate a KALESA distribution center costs Php 2.5 million which includes:

  • Php 1 million worth of MyHouse pre-fab building (for a 100-sqm. property),
  • Php 500 thousand worth of goods,
  • Lease to Four (4) KALESA e-Carts

Each distributor earns through the sales of the goods within the distribution center, either through walk-in customers or through the e-Carts.

Or you can also own a KALESA e-Cart, but it is advised to be close to an area with a KALESA distribution center where goods (at special prices) is sourced and for technical, marketing support.

An investment of Php 175,000 for one KALESA e-Cart is needed. This includes:

  • Php 50,000 worth of goods
  • Lease of KALESA e-CART

KALESA e-CARTS are only leased because the e-Carts are assigned to indigent families. This ensures that the primary objective to help indigent Filpinos are maintained at all cost – and not set aside – in the exchange of purely earning.
