City of Malolos- Fifty female sari-sari store owners from the different parts of the province will undergo the pilot test of Hapinoy Program which aims to strengthen the micro enterprises and help them to sustain their businesses.

This will happen as Bulacan Gov. Wilhelmino M. Sy-Alvarado, PESOPhil Chairman Elizabeth Alonzo together with MicroVentures Foundation sign the memorandum of agreement to launch the Hapinoy Program in Bulacan which will be held on May 22 at 2 p.m. in the Hiyas ng Bulacan Convention Center.

Alvarado said that the Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) also serves as the backbone of our economy that is why it is very important to support and help them through launching programs like Hapinoy.

“Part of the program is training the store owners to develop values, skills, and networks that can help them to be more successful in their business. Bulakenyos greatly appreciate this kind of support that will uplift the lives of the store owners and the country’s economy in general,” said Alvarado.

Alonzo also added that there are 50 female store owners who can qualify to benefit from the program. Some of the requirements are that the store is at least six months operational, and that the owner has access to micro-finance and is qualified for Capital Infusion, is not actively gambling, is not in deep debt, and the household has other primary source of income.

“Ang Hapinoy ay binubuo ng tatlong bahagi, ang training, clustering at monitoring. Sisimulan ang programa sa pamamagitan ng pag-a identify ng mga sari-sari store sa iba’t ibang bayan sa Bulacan katulong ang mga BTEC o Barangay Training and Employment Coordinators. Ang sari-sari store na may P500 minimum na kita kada araw ay kinakailangang pag-aari ng isang babae. Ang mga ito ang sasailalim sa iba’t ibang pagsasanay upang matulungan silang mapaunlad ang kanilang maliliit na negosyo,” added Alonzo. ###
