Aiko Melendez dedicated this post for small business owners
Award-winning actress Aiko Melendez shared her side regarding the recent predicaments of small business owners, especially those who are selling online.
In this modern era of social media, one can promote and sell products and services online. This trend is quite popular right now, especially to those who do not have the means to promote or sell their products through mainstream media.
In the issue that tax will also be implemented on online selling, Aiko shared a piece of her mind through her recent Instagram post. The actress shared the screenshots of an article in which her statement was published regarding this matter.
In the caption of her post, she wrote, “my heart goes to all the negosyantes, who is trying to make a decent living by selling online.” She also said that there is nothing wrong with this, especially that people are now facing the crisis.
According to her, it is not right to take away the means of people to find income from the “best way that they can.”
“Haven’t you all noticed? In my Ig stories i accept gifts from different online stores to show them my support coz to be mentioned by a celebrity is a big help and promo for them,” she added.
With this, she called out to small business owners to just send a message to her because she is ready to support them. As long as business owners are not stealing and their products are good, she is willing to lend a helping hand.
Aiko Melendez also said, “and pls another taxation for them is such a bad timing.” Several netizens thanked her for her support while some expressed admiration to her for standing with the small business owners.
