21 micro entrepreneurs in Pampanga undergo mentoring program

CITY OF SAN FERNANDO-- A total of 21 micro entrepreneurs in Pampanga are undergoing a capability building program under the Kapatid Mentor Micro Enterprises (KMME) program of Department of Trade and Industry (DTI).

DTI Pampanga acting provincial director Elenita Ordonio said 12 of the entrepreneurs are from the food sector and the rest from non-food.

They are the second batch from the province to undergo a two-month training focused on marketing, financial management, human resource management, operations management among others.

The 11th and last module requires the mentee to present his/her business plan, integrating the learning from the sessions.

“We continue to accomplish the KMME with the hope of making the micro bigger for entrepreneurs who are willing to grow,” DTI Regional Director Judith Angeles said.

She added that the entrepreneurs would help generate jobs by hiring more people and harness more resources to contribute to economic growth.

KMME is being implemented by DTI in partnership with Philippine Center for Entrepreneurship, which is under the leadership of Presidential Adviser Joey Concepcion. (PIA)
