Our goal for our 3M’s of entrepreneurship — Mentorship, Money, and Market — is to bring it closer to all micro and small entrepreneurs nationwide. We believe that the right mentorship is an important factor in the success of many entrepreneurs. It must be then coupled with the exposure to market and ease of access to financial institutions. With mentors, MSMEs will be guided from the inception to the implementation and achievement of their business’ success.
Last month, we brought our mentorship programs Mentor Me On Wheels and Money Market Encounter to three cities: Cagayan de Oro, Iloilo and Baguio City. These programs are organized in partnership with the Department of Trade and Industry. Through these consecutive rollouts, we have served over 1,200 mentees and gathered hundreds of mentors who volunteered their time to provide guidance to our MSMEs.
This is just one way of mobilizing mentorship here in the Philippines. I hope all the ideas shared between mentors and mentees will boost their businesses.
