CABUYAO CITY — A business plan can be thought of as a roadmap to success, providing clarity and structure to all aspects of a business, from marketing, to financing, and product or service analysis. As Benjamin Franklin said, “By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.”

Many enterprises go under soon after starting up because they failed to plan their business well. This is why Negosyo Center Cabuyao City of the Department of Trade and Industry Laguna Provincial Office in cooperation with the City Government Unit of Cabuyao City conducted a webinar on business planning and how to secure a business loan as part of their ongoing support and assistance to micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs).

In addition to providing a roadmap for progress and marketing plan, a business plan can also be vital in securing financing as it answers questions about profitability and revenue generation.
