Women Power

| Thursday, 26 February 2015 01:03 AM |


Women entrepreneurship continues to be a growing sector; in fact, a prime mover in the economy especially if we talk of the micro and SME segment. They are the force behind the millions sari-sari stores, bakeries, fashion and accessories, salons, processed food and beverage stores around us. Around 70% of new enterprises are started by women.  They are known to be more frugal, detailed, efficient, sweet and caring, and yes, can multi-task.  That is why we see a lot of women moving up in our society.  They are successful, taking leadership roles in corporations, government and NGOs, in many sectors of our economy, even in elected positions.  We are used to being governed by women, not only as presidents of our country or corporations, but as CEO’s in our homes.

Go Negosyo, for the past 10 years, has placed greater focus in helping Filipina entrepreneurs improve their lives. Usually, many micro and small enterprises are home-based thus managed by many mothers. Mompreneurs, as we call them, are also the largest borrowers from microfinance institutions. These small businesses are often direct selling, sari-sari stores and retail of home-made products in wet markets. Many are into agribusiness, covering poultry, fishery and other farm-related businesses. READ MORE.

Happy Chinese New Year to all our Chinese-Filipino fellowmen who will be celebrating the Spring Festival today.  I am sure that all Chinoys and even most Pinoys will welcome the year of the wooden sheep with some kind of celebration. Chinese people have been part of our culture, history and race that is why we received many influences and values from them including hard work, determination and of course, good food! READ MORE.

Powering the Business Sector

| Thursday, 12 February 2015 11:30 AM |


The other week, Unilever's Country Chairman and CEO Rohit Jawa and I, together with my brother John who is the Managing Director of our Selecta ice cream JV with Unilever, met Energy Secretary Jericho Petilla and his team and we got to discuss the power situation. Selecta is the market leader in ice cream with close to 80% share of the market and with several thousands of freezers deployed in many sari sari stores that are adding more income to sari-sari store entrepreneurs.  It is in the peak summer months that they benefit the most from selling ice cream. We wanted to get an assessment on how bad the power situation really is and whether or not we would be having brownouts that could affect the businesses of many micro entrepreneurs as well as the operations of all those in business.
