Black Books x Qarabao


We customized our Black Books as part of startup Qarabao’s recent media launch. As an e-commerce platform made specifically for micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs), Qarabao aims to help entrepreneurs simplify their online businesses—the same way carabaos do the heavy lifting for hardworking farmers everywhere.


Qarabao aims to address difficulties faced by small business owners in the Philippines, who struggle to maintain and scale their businesses alongside bigger enterprises. After interviewing entrepreneurs from various industries, the Qarabao team zeroed in on building an online ecosystem that will simplify three key business processes: Maintaining accurate and organized inventories, creating and tracking orders and customer details, and streamlining ordering and payment processes.

“We found that many Filipinos are intimidated by the idea of even starting a business. We want to change this and empower every Filipino to follow their business dreams. We built Qarabao so that more Filipino entrepreneurs would have access to innovative tools that would help build their businesses which in turn would be a boon to our country’s economy,” said Mike Tiongson, CEO of Qarabao.


Their newly launched Standard Plan starts at P490 a month—that’s only P16 a day for a system that will support your business through and through. Check out their 30-day free trial here.

It has been a pleasure collaborating with companies like Qarabao who share our vision of simplicity in design. More power and best of luck!
