"Access to better paying and permanent jobs has not always been within easy reach for out-of-school youths (OSYs) and indigenous peoples, more so during the Covid-19 pandemic. This reality inspired two women technopreneurs, Paula Bayao and Cherlyn So, to set up their respective start-ups called Puldiya and Raketeer. Their goal is to provide opportunities for employment specifically for these socially marginalized groups in the youth sector through skills upgrading and eventually match them with the right employers.
 

Start-ups addressing social inclusion

“Puldiya hopes to address the social inclusion of the indigenous community, specifically the Igorots, to ensure that no one is left behind as we move forward in dealing with the new normal,” says Bayao, a freelance industrial engineer who recently put up the Baguio-based start-up with co-founder Katlyn Say-Awen. The start-up also serves as the community arm for Bayao’s business called Hey Success Virtual Assistance Services. Puldiya, which means ‘pay per day’ in kankana-ey dialect, is a reference to the labor-intensive but informal jobs many Cordillerans do like gardening, mining, or carpentry and where payment is mostly per day’s work."
