Mama Emz Food Products was recently included in the Kapatid Mentor Me (KMME) Program in Oryza Hotel, Santiago City last September 18, 2019.
According to DTI, this program aims to help micro and small entrepreneurs to step-up their businesses by providing them free lectures and mentoring/coaching sessions to be discussed by business owners/ local kapatid mentors on different functional areas of entrepreneurship.
The launching program was participated in by more than 600 Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) from the provinces of Cagayan, Isabela, Nueva Vizcaya and Quirino, including the pre-selected mentees. Also present during the event were DTI Region 2 OIC Regional Director Ruben B. Diciano, Executive Assistant IV of Santiago City Mayor’s Office Mr. Paulino M. Tan to represent Santiago City Mayor Joseph Tan, DTI Region 2 provincial directors and personnel, local mentors, and media.
It aims to help the country’s micro and small enterprises (MSEs) through three key components:
- The Mentor ME (micro entrepreneurs) program, a coaching and mentoring approach where large corporations teach MSEs on different aspects of business operations
- The Adopt-an-SSF (Shared Service Facility) program, which aims to help micro entrepreneurs by providing them access to SSFs in their community
- The Inclusive Business (IB) model where MSEs are linked into large companies’ value chains
The hard work paid off. From Skills Training, Capability Building Seminars to Product Development: Improving the Packaging and Labelling conducted by the Department of Trade Industry Isabela through its Negosyo Center in Santiago City in collaboration with the City Government Unit of Santiago, the MSMEs in the City showcased their products at Robinsons Place Santiago City.
