Last year was challenging for all of us. Coronavirus has triggered a global health crisis. The economy has harshly affected world-wide. The service sector is one of the industries which tremendously fallbacks. This leads to employees, including white-collar and blue-collar, who work without pay, goes for indefinite leave, and also get fired from their jobs.
“As per an ET report, India has nearly 170 million people employed in blue-collar jobs, including drivers, electricians, logistics, delivery, plumber, and other contractual staff.”
According to a survey, over 120 million blue-collar employees went un-paid during lockdown last year.
It would be challenging for the worker who has a job whose earning is dependent upon how much they work. But as now things are getting better, companies are investing and hiring technicians once again.
Quicqo is one of the largest service marketplaces for blue-collar professionals in India. It is B2C and B2B platform-based, wherefrom customers can discover and hire more than 20 services like AC repair, photography, car repair and services, dietician, yoga classes, wedding planner and many more.

Quicqo is providing soft loans, in which they give an interest-free loan to their Air condition service partners that can be paid later. Till now, they have given Rs. 28 lakhs amount of interest-free loan to their 5000+ AC service partners.
With taking view of the coming season and to fulfill the high requirement of technicians, Quicqo has started on-boarding AC service providers since last December.
