Davao City – The Enterprise Bank, Inc. successfully held the Women Entrepreneurs Exhibit and Business (WEB) Forum 2014 at the Davao Convention and Trade Center on May 9, 2014.
Envisioning a brighter future by helping entrepreneurs has been the thrust and goal of Enterprise Bank Incorporated since it began operations 38 years ago. All throughout its existence, the bank has been recognized for its valuable microfinance services in the rural community and it has soared to greater heights when it helped small and medium enterprises with its SME Lending program.
Today, the former “New Rural Bank of Lianga” is still eyeing on the same goal and is playing a pivotal role in the development of entrepreneurs.
Purpose of the Event
Admission was free for everyone who wanted to enter the exhibit area. Consumers shopped from the booths and learned about local businesses owned (mostly) by women entrepreneurs. The exhibit was a venue for these women entrepreneurs to showcase their products and services while mingling with their supporters, patrons and walk-in customers. This opportunity builds networks for all the participants in a day of fun and learning. The business forum provided the learning part of the activity to empower women with knowledge on business trends.
WEB 2014 was in line with The Enterprise Bank’s 38th year anniversary as one of the leading financial service providers in Mindanao.
The event was co-sponsored by the Department of Trade and Industry, People’s Credit and Finance Corp., Land Bank of the Philippines, Philippine Business for Social Progress, Malayan Insurance, Philamlife Insurance and AXA Philippines.
