Canadian org partners with 2 Ilocos Sur women groups to boost their business

ILOCOS SUR, Mar. 23 (PIA) – The Canadian Executive Service Organization (CESO) is partnering with two women organizations in Ilocos Sur to help improve and promote their economic and social well-being. 
These organizations are the Cervantes, Ilocos Sur Women Development Center (CISWDC), a group of meat processors based in Rosario, Cervantes, and the Borobor Rural Improvement Club, (BRIC) who are also into food processing based in Borobor, Sto. Domingo.
Under its Accelerating Women’s Enterprise (AWE) Program, the CESO has committed to provide technical assistance to these women groups along areas of their business operation specifically product development, production, quality control,  financial procedures and marketing, among others. 
The AWE Program harnesses the knowledge and skills of volunteer Canadian experts and advisors to implement these services through trainings/seminars/webinars.
This is the third engagement of CESO in Ilocos Sur as it helped the City of Vigan in crafting its Comprehensive Environmental Plan and the Municipality of Sta. Catalina in reducing its dependence to pesticides by adopting ecologically-based pest management practices to curtail environmental pollution and safeguard human health.
“The selection of these women organizations is indeed timely as we celebrate the National Women’s Month.  Through CESO assistance, they will be guided by an experienced business advisor who can provide them consultancy services to sustain their business operation and deliver satisfactory services to their members,” said Mr. Matt Navalta, CESO’s country representative in the Philippines.
CESO empowers people, businesses, communities and institutions to drive economic development and improve lives around the world and in Canada by sharing the right expertise and experience.
A not-for-profit organization since 1967, CESO advisors are volunteers who devote their time and energy toward economic and social change in more than 500 assignments each year. (JCR/AMB/PIA Ilocos Sur with reports from DTI)
