Villa moms coached to be biz-savvy

BELIEVING that mothers, given the proper guidance, are the financial aces and resource managers of their respective families, FDC Misamis Power Corporation (FDC Misamis) in partnership with the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) in Misamis Oriental, conducted a Community-Based Entrepreneurship Training-Workshop for the women of Barangays Tambobong and Balacanas in Villanueva town. Participants were members of the Kalipinunan ng Liping Pilipina (Kalipi) mulling to put up a bag/sandal-making business.

“We want to make a difference,” declared Joy Raro, president of Kalipi – Balacanas Chapter, adding, “we want to empower women in our barangay by providing them livelihood that could increase their family income.” “As much as possible, we want this proposed business to last a lifetime,” added Sylvia Ello, president of Kalipi-Tambobong Chapter.

FDC Misamis, operator of the 3 x 135 MW circulating fluidized-bed coal thermal plant in Villanueva, commits to extend assistance to the group. “FDC Misamis pushes for inclusive growth.

Women in general are great managers and are key players in driving progress to communities,” said Mirabel May Perez, the firm’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) officer. “Entrepreneurial skills can be developed and learned,” added Perez.

Zuen Guantero, livelihood coordinator of DTI-MisOr, introduced a training tool called Business, Expenses, Savings, Training (BEST).
