CITY OF SAN FERNANDO --- The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) conducted recently the pilot run of its “Tindahan Mo, e-Level Up Mo!” program.

The program's first module, “e-level Up ang Negosyo,” leveraged digital technologies and solutions to increase the efficiency and competitiveness of sari-sari store operations.

Also part of the module is on how to set up a cashless payment system, and how to establish digital services like cash-in and bills payment using various e-wallets.

Upcoming modules include “e-Level Up ang Online Marketing” - Equips participants with strategies to reach new customers and expand their online presence through digital tools (July 24); “e-Level Up ang Puhunan” - Explores digital products to manage finances and grow business capital (August 28);

The program also offers a comprehensive range of support from DTI, including business name registration process and relevant consumer protection policies.

Sari-sari store owners can participate in the webinars by tuning in to the DTI Philippines Facebook page (fb.com/groups/tmelm) and YouTube channel or visit their nearest DTI Negosyo Centers to join the live stream.

DTI data shows that MSMEs account for over 90 percent of businesses and employ millions of workers, with over 1.3 million sari-sari stores providing the daily necessities to a vast majority of communities across the country.
