"Tara MSMEs, Mag-aral Tamu is an online platform that enables our local MSMEs to make good use of their free time to learn about the different aspects of entrepreneurship thru free websites offering online learning sessions," DTI Provincial Director Elenita Ordonio said.

The platform links can be accessed through the DTI Pampanga Facebook page using the following sites: a) DTI Library through ; b) Markprof Foundation Youtube through https://tinyurl.rom/ryobj2a ; c) GoNegosyo Youtube through and d) ASEAN SME Academy through

The online learning sessions which will help Pampanga MSMEs were organized by the DTI-Pampanga in response to an online survey of local entrepreneurs it conducted recently.

"In the survey, majority of the 43 MSMEs who responded said that one of the major services they wish to avail during these times is the conduct of online learning sessions," Ordonio added.

Aside from these online platforms, the Philippine Center for Entrepreneurship through its Go Negosyo program is currently holding online mentoring sessions linked through its Facebook page under the handle Go Negosyo.

The online mentoring sessions are conducted from 3:00PM-5:00PM by different Angelpreneurs or mentor-experts discussing different topics such as Managing Disruption of Business, Human Resource Management during Crisis and Financial Management. (PIA-Central Luzon)
