Tatak: Matatag na Negosyo logo

The Tatak: Matatag na Negosyo (TMN), is a coalition born out of the desire of government agencies, microfinance institutions, civil society organizations, and business corporations to help micro retailers thread through the challenges of the pandemic by ushering them transform into sustainable and resilient enterprises.
