Being passionate about education and entrepreneurship, we dreamed of coming up with an enterprise that could both earn money and help others learn at the same time, hopefully transforming lives in the process.

With our machine, we at Palamigan Co. dream of developing as many micro - entrepreneurs at the grassroots level as we can to help end poverty in our country.
Saret Organic Farmville is an inclusive, social agribusiness based in Bulacan. We practice fair trade and work with poor upland farmers and indigenous tribes in the Philippines. We work with very capable communities who have knowledge about agriculture and has access to land for farming. They are industrious and responsible but they don’t have the resources to take their knowledge to another level. They have no expertise in business management, marketing and branding, and, sadly, they do not have the confidence to personally communicate or collaborate with potential stakeholders.

CocoAsenso is developing a network of medium-scale factories in remote areas of the Philippines where coconuts can easily be sourced directly from local farmers. It turns out, with a few technological and process innovations, many high-value coconut products can be efficiently manufactured in a medium-sized factory while maintaining the same product quality as the mega-factories. This finally gives farmers an alternative to producing copra—but that’s not all. Furthermore, Cocoasenso's agreement with farmers is that if they sell whole coconuts, Cocoasenso will give them a part-time job at the factory. This will increase the average farmer’s income from coconuts by 85%.
