Manila kicks off ‘Entrepinays’
The local government of Manila recently kicked off an exposition which will showcase local businesses product being run by women entrepreneurs.
According to Manila Mayor Honey Lacuna, she has invited public support as part of continuing celebration of “Women’s Month” in the city.
“The City of Manila presents EntrePinays #WOMEaNBUSINESS, an event meant to recognize and support local businesses owned by Filipina entrepreneurs in the city,” Lacuna said.
The lady mayor added that Permits Bureau chief Levi Facundo is on top of the event that began on 13 March and will run until 19 March 2023.
Under the program, Manila’s female entrepreneurs were given the opportunity to showcase their products at the Bonifacio Shrine ranging from various kinds of food to dry goods.
Facundo said the stalls are open from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. daily and the business owners are required to pay a very minimal amount to the city — only P40 a day.
The said event is being held as part of the city government’s “Manila Support Local” program which aims to promote locally-made products and thus help small and medium businesses to flourish.
Lacuna said that from one woman to another, she is all for helping women succeed in whatever field of endeavor they have chosen to pursue.
