47 Kalinga folks train on micro-business development

by L. Lopez

Tabuk, Kalinga (31 October) -- 47 rural folks train on starting small business enterprises under the Rural Micro-entrepreneur Promotion Program (RuMEPP) of the Department of Trade and Industry.

RuMEPP Program Officer Aurora Sanet of DTI-Kalinga said 27 are coffee farmers of Barangay Balawag, this town, who are engaged in coffee processing, while 20 come from Rizal municipality and are into mushroom production, vege-noodles production and bio-modulator production.

Bio-modulator is a new technology of producing an agent mixed with swine food to omit the faint odor of swine waste.

The training develops new entrepreneurs and teaches them how to start a small business by providing them simple system in business planning. This will guide them on what particular enterprise they would open in their locality.

Part of the business plan involves identification of available raw materials in the place and the possibility of having a market share.

The two factors are crucial to sustain what business to open as RuMEPP promotes resource-based business activity.

Sanet said participants were given basic seminars on recording and simple book-keeping to have business track, as initial step in business development.

All participants to the training have already started their own business activities of retailing roasted ground coffee powder for the Balawag coffee processors, while those from Rizal are picking-up with their mushrooms and vege-noodles.

The training was conducted by Kalinga Apayao Provincial Cooperative Union (KAPCU), a service provider contracted-out by RuMEPP.

RuMEPP was launched in the province in 2007 aimed at developing new small business that are resource-based, in line with government's agenda of providing additional income to small families. (PIA-Kalinga) [top]
