Celebrating Independence

As we commemorate the Philippines’ 126th Independence Day, we reflect not only on our history but also on its relevance today. Just as our forebears fought for freedom from colonial rule in 1898, modern-day heroes are shaping our nation’s future through entrepreneurship, empowering themselves and others along the way.

Empowering Through Entrepreneurship

Filipino mompreneurs exemplify this spirit, overcoming challenges to achieve personal and financial independence. According to the Philippine Institute for Development Studies, micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) generate significant employment, contribute substantially to our economy, and boost exports, playing a crucial role in our nation’s growth.

Madiskarte Moms PH, an online community supporting mompreneurs, embodies this spirit by creating products that celebrate Filipino culture and empower local communities through direct and indirect employment opportunities.

From OFWs to Entrepreneurs

Despite initial setbacks, she pursued her passion after studying at the School of Fashion and Arts (SOFA), establishing Lois Gabriel Events with a team that grew to five members, ensuring memorable events with her organizational skills.

For April Ocampo, an OFW in Macau and Singapore turned full-time mom, entrepreneurship became a lifeline during her post-partum journey.
