This will feature 16 homegrown entrepreneurs who will showcase their products ranging from crocheted items and clay creations to baked boneless bangus and bagoong.

“Access to financial education is very important for all Filipinos, and I’m glad that Tala is able to extend this opportunity to entrepreneurial mothers, housewives, and individuals through the TALAkayan workshop.
