Opportunities for SMEs, entrepreneurs

IN A bid to make opportunities on entrepreneurship to Dabawenyos, Radiowealth Finance Corporation held its first Go Negosyo, Buhay Asenso Trade Expo on June 25 to 27 at the Gaisano Mall of Davao.

Donald John Balanay, Radiowealth Finance Corporation assistant vice president for Sales Visayas and Mindanao, said this is the first time they are staging a trade and business fair. He said the company would tend to hold a “subastahan” where they would showcase cars.

“This is the first time that we are tapping entrepreneurs. We would want to widen our reach not just limiting ourselves to financing vehicles,” he said.

Balanay added, “We want to help people start their own business, especially those who lack capitalization.”

He said RFC offers a range of financing products and services for businesses. Among their products for businesses are loans for machineries and heavy equipment, loans for special equipment, SME Working Capital Loan, Store Inventory Loan, and Auto Dealer’s Loan.

During the three-day fair, they targeted would-be entrepreneurs, established entrepreneurs, and their exhibitors.

Myles Cruz of AM Events and Consultancy said the event featured some 30 exhibitors into different kind of businesses like food, events, retail, and industrial.

“We partnered with DTI (Department of Trade and Industry) and the DCIPC (Davao City Investment Promotion Center). We try to help out the SMEs (small and medium enterprises) to level up in their businesses,” Cruz said.

Balanay said through the trade and business fair, mall-goers are able to interact with exhibitors on starting a business.

“A trade event is the best avenue to reach out to people to show them the business,” he said.

Aside from the exhibit, the event also featured talks on entrepreneurship like how to start a business.
