Gathering and training together regulates momentum.

One Aklan conducted their first successful Vendor Orientation and Dashboard Training Seminar last September 28, 2018 at the Old Session Hall for the Sangguniang Panlalawigan, Aklan Provincial Capitol Building together with the Department of Trade and Industry represented byMs. Stella Caldera, Senior Trade and Industry Development Specialist, Mr. Marsh Bernabe,
Project Development Officer II/LEIPO Designate of the Province of Aklan, and Mr. Heinz Militar of Selah Studio.

A total of 28 local MSMEs from different sectors and towns from the province of Aklan attended the said event. It was fascinating to witness that all entrepreneurs both from the micro to the large enterprises are meeting together. From just a mere vision, the curtains have now unfolded, giving a privilege for all local MSMEs to be belong into one community and intensify all marketing efforts through e-commerce. In the said training, oneAklan team emphasized the services they offer such as through digital advertising, marketing, sales, customer service, and even local delivery.

One of the entrepreneurs, Dolores Pintor of Altavas, Aklan mentioned “It was a blessing from God because we have been given this opportunity to learn more about marketing our products in the digital world and a chance for our voices to be heard despite being a micro entrepreneur. That is why we are so thankful to oneAklan and to everyone who contributes to this wonderful
project”.

Majority of the afternoon was allotted for the orientation and dashboard walk through to enable the MSME subscribers maximize the functionalities of the oneAklan platform. Within the platform, the MSMEs can upload information and photos of products they wanted to sell and even monitor their inventory and sales, among many others. There was also an open forum, which the DTI and Provincial Government helped facilitate. This open forum created an atmosphere of healthy discussion, brainstorming of ideas, and raising the concerns of the MSMEs. Indeed, we foresee that oneAklan can be a great avenue for every MSME to let their voices be heard and belong in a community wherein local entrepreneurs are treated equally with a common purpose of having a progressive economic growth for the benefit of Aklanons.

And now is just the beginning…
