Hapinoy deploys its Growth-oriented Scorecard in LeySam
Hapinoy administered its growth-oriented scorecard to thousands of sari-sari store owners in Leyte and Samar to aid recruitment of potential participants for its project in the area. This was the pilot application which was developed through Hapinoy’s partnership with Mastercard and Grameen Foundation.
When Typhoon Yolanda (internationally known as Haiyan) struck the Eastern Visayas region, it caused businesses to close. Microbusinesses like sari-sari stores were greatly affected. With their effort to rise from the havoc caused by the disaster, several make-shift stores were opened to meet the demands of the community.
Seeing the need to build more resilient businesses in the region, Hapinoy, in partnership with different organizations and institutions here and abroad, launched a project that aims to help rebuild the sari-sari stores. This project aims to establish resiliency among these microbusinesses, while equipping them with basic business management and resiliency, as well as personal development skills.
Hapinoy then prioritized growth-oriented store owners who are willing to adopt new learnings, improve store operations, and augment household income. It approached thousands of stores and administered the Hapinoy growth-oriented scorecard to identify the potential participants of the project.
To cater the objectives of the project without altering the purpose of the scorecard, minor changes and adjustments were made. The scorecard questions were imported to a software, which was then used during the store-to-store visit for recruitment. This helped in filtering and categorizing stores based on the criteria set for the project.
After the pilot implementation, the Hapinoy growth-oriented scorecard has also been used in other projects in Metro Manila.
