SOMAGO, the newest online shopping platform based in the Philippines, partners with the Department of Trade & Industry’s One Town One Product (OTOP) Next Gen Program, to provide local MSMEs with an alternative online channel to sell and market their products.

The first run of orientation in the CALABARZON Region was conducted in Cavite with thirty-five (35) MSMEs in attendance and was held on 24 May 2023 at PSA Training Room, Trece Martires City, Cavite.

Facilitated by DTI Cavite and the SOMAGO Team led by Ms. Micha Dela Torre, Chief Marketing Manager, Ms. Vanessa Cabilin, Sales and Marketing Assistant, and Ms. Roselle Saet, Marketing Supervisor, the orientation served as venue to introduce SOMAGO as an “OTOP Mall” carrying quality and most sought-after products per region.

“An e-commerce platform for our local MSMEs is something we really needed so this is an opportunity we should not miss,” DTI Cavite Provincial Director Revelyn Cortez said in her closing remarks. 

Initially, ten (10) MSMEs onboarded the said platform during the event and started to enjoy its full benefits.

MSMEs who were unable to attend the orientation but are interested to enroll their products may inquire with the DTI Cavite Provincial Office thru landline (046) 419-1028 loc. 105 or e-mail*
