Following the completion of the ten modules of the Kapatid Mentor ME-Money Market Encounter (KMME-MME) program of the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) Region 2 in partnership with the Philippine Center for Entrepreneurship-Go Negosyo, the 48 mentees from Region 2 were provided with a special bonus session entitled, Government Services Forum on 23 April 2024 via Zoom.

DTI R2-SMEDD OIC Chief Desiree Angolluan commended the mentees for their sustained commitment to attending the module sessions and urged them to reap the benefits of the vast network of enablers from the government sector that will continuously support them to thrive and grow.

Among the agencies that shared their programs aside from the DTI were the Department of Tourism, the Department of Labor and Employment, the Food and Drug Administration, the Regional Tripartite Wages and Productivity Board, and the Small Business Corporation. Hence, the said number of mentees explored the programs and services of various government agencies that best suit their business operations

Moving forward, the mentees will undergo coaching sessions with the different mentors in preparation for their respective Business Improvement Plan presentations on 13–14 May 2024. The completion of the program depends on their performance which will ultimately determine their eligibility to graduate.
