On Enterprise Development

Proudly South Cotabato Pasalubong Center opens



Micro-entrepreneurs (the smallest of the formal business sector) have now a place to promote and expose their products. Finally, the Proudly South Cotabato Pasalubong and MSME Center opens along Alunan, Avenue Koronadal City, 18 November 2011. 


Located in front of the Provincial Capitol Complex of South Cotabato, the Center will showcase local products from South Cotabato to include handicrafts, coffee and pineapple products, organic  vegetables, and other foods and native products.



But the space is not only a place to buy local products but a home of micro-entrepreneurs sharing lessons on product and service development at the community level. 

For the meantime, the center is also a venue for exposure of youth/ students/ volunteers who wanted to venture into marketing and managing a business. As of now, three student interns are being trained in managing product consolidation center. 









The Center is supported by the Rural Micro Enterprise Promotion Programme of DTI and the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD).



PS: Important guests present during the opening were South Cotabato micro entrepreneurs, Edna Feliprada, President of UPPSCO, RD Gloria Tango of DOLE 12, Mayor Romulo Solivio of Surallah, Fr. Joy Pelino of Diocese of Marbel, Mike Quinoñez of DSWD, and Mr. David of BIR.
