Napakabilis ng isang taon! Isang taong punong-puno ng pag-educate about the importance of insurance, pagserbisyo sa gitna ng pandemya, pagbigay pugay sa mga frontliners, pagtulong sa mga nakaranas ng askidente, at pagproprotect sa mga libo-libong Pilipino!
Launched a year ago by Agile Insurance Agency and Business Technologies, Inc. (AGILE) in partnership with Stronghold Insurance Company, Inc. (STRONGHOLD), ang JuanLife ay binuo upang maghatid ng personal accident insurance na abot-kaya at inclusive, lalung-lalo na sa mga high-risk segments tulad ng mga bata mula edad 7 pataas, mga professional na nagtatrabaho in hazardous environments. Even mga underserved gaya ng mga naaksidente sa motor at sa mga ng natural disasters ay parte ng JuanLife coverage.
“Our vision for JuanLife is for Filipino families to go to us for their basic insurance needs because we understand their needs,” kwento ni Ms. Roselle Masirag, ang General Manager ng JuanLife Philippines. But in order to reach this, Ms. Roselle and the JuanLife team had to educate people first about insurance.
“The awareness and appreciation of insurance is very low in the Philippines, especially because Filipinos think that all insurance products are expensive,” kwento ni Ms. Roselle. Dagdag niya, “we are exhausting all efforts, using our media channels to educate the public and change that mindset. We want to empower people to understand their risks, and to make buying decisions to mitigate those risks.” Para kay Ms. Roselle, hindi na sapat ang “mag-ingat na lang”. Kailangan ng mga tao ng concrete plan of action that would protect them from potential risks, which JuanLife offers.
One year later, JuanLife was able to provide protection to thousands of Filipinos who did not think that they can afford to buy insurance. Maliban dito, nakapagbigay rin ang JuanLife ng dagdag income sa mga Pilipino na nawalan ng trabaho dahil sa global crisis na dulot ng pandemic. As of today, madami na at dumarami pa ang JuanLife dealers at distributors sa Metro Manila at kalapit na regions. The JuanLife Kakampi network has already reached VizMin, kasama na dito ang Bohol, Cebu, Davao, Negros Occidental, at Zamboanga Del Sur.
On top of this, nagkaroon na rin ang JuanLife ng distributors at dealers sa Singapore, Hong Kong, Guam at Norway, kasama na dito ang mga Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW) na nagsimula muna bilang clients ng JuanLife. After initially buying insurance protection for their families back home, they realized na their kababayans share the same fears and motivations, and saw this as an opportunity for them to promote JuanLife in their adopted country and earn extra income.
Aside from providing business opportunities, JuanLife has also opened its doors to charitable organizations in the past year. After donating insurance to selected frontliners during the lockdown in Metro Manila, it has recently partnered with Habitat for Humanity Philippines, a nonprofit organization, to launch a donation program para sa kanilang beneficiaries na nais maitayo ulit ang kanilang mga tahanan matapos masalanta ng Bagyong Rolly at Bagyong Ulysses. This 1-year free insurance gives their beneficiaries P150,000 maximum coverage for any injuries caused by accidents.
Sa darating na bagong taon, ang JuanLife, together with corporate partners, ay patuloy na isasakatuparan ang kanilang vision to provide the basic insurance needs of Filipino families by making insurance products accessible to them.
