Digital Resilience as a Sustainable Strategy for Social Enterprise Development in Post COVID-19 Philippines

The COVID-19 pandemic has drastically affected various sectors and key players in development, such as the micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs), with social enterprises included. With conglomerates armed with resources to adapt technology solutions, MSMEs had to struggle to survive, especially social enterprises whose bottom lines are not limited to financial but also social and environmental. The absence of a policy that supports the growth of the social enterprise sector limits its ability to address societal and environmental problems. Although social enterprises are considered part of the MSME sector, which allows them to benefit from some of the incentives and programs of national and local government units, the fact remains that the absence of its concept and wording on significant policies and programs limits social enterprises to access appropriate funding and financial support based on their specific needs.
