Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) Tarlac provided skills training on entrepreneurship and mango processing to the residents of barangay Bilad in Camiling town.
DTI Tarlac OIC Provincial Director Zaida Garibay backed the entrepreneurship training, adding that this could lead to more livelihood opportunities, and budding entrepreneurs in the municipality.
“We hope that this activity will inspire the participants to go into business and convert their produce into profit. This is an opportunity to have more entrepreneurial activities in their community that may contribute to their economic growth,” Garibay said.
During the activity, Business Counselor Renz Joseph Perez talked about entrepreneurship, business opportunities, and the steps and requirements in registering a business.
Meanwhile, Arceli Oriondo was invited to demonstrate how to process mangoes into different products including jam, mango vinegar, mango candy, pickled mangoes, and dried mangoes.
The training was requested by a group of locals in Barangay Bilad to maximize the use of mangoes, which are abundant in their area. (CLJD/TJBM-PIA 3)
