Alaska empowers micro and small entrepreneurs in another AlasKabuhayan session

“Talagang malaki ang tulong ng Alaska sa amin dahil mura na, masustansiya pa,” 80-year old Gloria Mariama said in a live cooking demo by Chef Kai Padilla, Alaska Milk Corporation’s partner chef, as AMC holds another AlasKabuhayan in Barangay Maypajo, Caloocan City on June 27, 2022.

To help several small business owners and entrepreneurs to manage their businesses efficiently, AMC, in partnership with the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), conducted yet another successful livelihood program and nutrition talk in Caloocan.

“Nagtinda rin ako noon ng halo-halo, sago, pati mga ice candy, siyempre gamit ang Alaska. Iba ang benta kapag Alaska evap ang gamit ko,” Gloria added as she tells how Alaska products helped here gain profit in her then mini merienda and breakfast business.

In line with AMC’s vision to be the leading provider of affordable nutrition and sustainable livelihood through culinary business opportunities, Alaska provided over 60 starter kits to aid the participants in the start-up of their enterprise.

DTI representative Jheric Saracho also discussed the technicalities of business registration and the different services of the department to the micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSME).

To assist the participants who are planning to expand or start their venture, Eduardo Talavera, Jr., Sector Manager of Kabuhayan Sa Ganap Na Kasarinlan Credit and Savings Cooperative, presented the cooperative’s various programs and assistance that they can avail of.

The event concluded with a nutritional talk focusing on “Pinggang Pinoy” by the Regulatory Affairs Manager of AMC, Anna Marie Villanueva. She emphasized how Alaska products, ultimately milk, provide good health, bringing down malnutrition levels in the Philippines and the world.
