SAN JOSE DE BUENAVISTA, Antique – The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) will commence the first of its regional online mentoring for interested micro, small, and medium entrepreneurs (MSMEs) on July 15.
“With the new normal, the mentees will no longer have to meet their mentors personally in one venue but they will have their virtual mentoring,” Wilson Alian, who is in charge of the Kapatid Mentor Me (KMME) program of DTI-Antique, said in an interview on Friday.
The first batch of the 2020 KMME, whose training will last until September 9, will start with an orientation about the program on July 15, Alian said.
He said 14 mentees from this province would join 26 other mentees from Aklan and Iloilo during virtual sessions that would be hosted by the regional office of the DTI based in Iloilo City.
“The mentoring sessions will be every Wednesday and Friday from 8 o’clock in the morning to 12 o’clock noon,” Alian said.
Mentors, who are accredited by the Philippine Center for Entrepreneurship (PCE), will discuss 10 modules, among them Entrep Mindset and Values Formation and Marketing Mindset.
They will cap their sessions with the presentation of business improvement plans on September 9.
Meanwhile, Alian said that Antique mentees who were part of the batch that began last March 6 but whose sessions were suspended due to the implementation of the enhanced community quarantine, will have to repeat from the first module.
“There will be six mentees who will have their virtual mentoring at the San Jose de Buenavista Negosyo Center (NC) and five others at (the) Sibalom NC,” he said, adding that three other mentees from San Jose de Buenavista, Sibalom, and Patnongon opted to have their sessions either in their homes or offices.
