20 Abra entrepreneurs finish KMME program
by PIA-Abra

BANGUED, Abra – Twenty micro, small, medium entrepreneurs are now more equipped with the right skills to manage and scale up their businesses after successfully completing training courses of the Kapatid Mentor Micro Enterprises (KMME) program of the Department of Trade and Industry.

The graduates completed the 10-module mentoring courses that subjected them to various business concepts such as marketing, financial management, mind-setting, product development, operations management, and business plan management.

The KMME is a partnership program of DTI and Go Negosyo that aims to uplift and sustain the growth of entrepreneurs through capability building seminars and trainings.

During the graduation ceremony on July 25, DTI-Abra Director Arell F. Bañez stressed on the 3Ms of entrepreneurial development that the KMME graduates learned throughout the sessions, namely mind-setting, mastery, and mentoring. 

Bañez said the mentees can also avail of the other 4Ms from DTI: money, which allows them access to financial assistance; machines, which gives them the opportunity to acquire the conforming equipment for their business; market access, which helps them to promote their products through trade fairs; and the models of business, which gives them more ideas about business from traditional enterprises to direct selling and franchising.

Rodolfo de la Paz, representing Gov. Joy Bernos, recognized the vital role of businesses in igniting economical development of the province. He underscored the relevance of their accomplishments in line with the “A food for every Abrenian” livelihood program of the provincial government.

KMME Batch 2019 president Alejandra Badajos commended the assistance and support of DTI-Abra in developing their business through the KMME Program. Badajos is a former overseas worker who put up his Farmville Resort business in Bangued after his return to the country.

“I found it really hard to start over again before due to my lengthy stay overseas and work assignment. Then I started to consult government agencies on reintegration programs. I approached the DTI to seek assistance to be a full-fledged entrepreneur. From there I was able to put up Farmville Resort with the small savings that I had,” Badajos said.

The Farmville Resort is now one of Bangued’s well-known resorts.

Badajos said with the support of DTI, he plans to expand his business and seek accreditation with the Department of Tourism.

Philippine Center for Entrepreneurship marketing officer Paul Anthony de Guzman lauded the graduates for taking the challenge to become competitive entrepreneurs.
