The Iloilo City government, in partnership with Produkto Lokal, will be holding a trade fair at the Jaro Plaza bandstand from May 25 to 27.

Around 50 food, non-food, and farm exhibitors are expected to participate.

“We expose these micro-entrepreneurs to the market, then link them to suppliers, provide assistance by helping them register their business, and link them with financial institutions to become part of the formal economy,” explained Local Economic and Investment Promotions Office (LEIPO) head Ritchel Gavan.

Produkto Lokal is being run by the Youth First Initiative, which gathers micro-entrepreneurs and provides them with venues where they can display their products./WDJ
