Hi everyone! I would like to turn my valuable and creative ideas into action. Building a social enterprise has been my dream since 2016. And as someone who came from a family who loves authenticated, natural and earth-friendly products, I became inspired in supporting Filipino local farmers as they produce more artisanal food preserves. Thus, year 2018, another inspiration touched me, when at the age of 22, most of my cousins, classmates and friends became solo parents. And they all face same dilemma - the struggle and paralyzing difficulty of raising their child/children while not being able to sustain and support themselves first. So consequently, I became addicted to the idea of creating something that would benefit those two (1) Local farmers (2) Solo Parents at the same time or simultaneously. And as I do the brainstorming with myself, researching, doing interviews and all that... I have come to final idea which made "Aga Dess Artisanal Preserves" into existence.
"Aga Dess" was derived from my mother's maiden name. It's me who suggested that name because I wanted to incorporate maternal vibes in this particular social enterprise. So as I plan or it, "Aga Dess Chili Sauce" was born... and then followed by an idea or should I say dream of producing natural - homemade jams and marmalades that will create opportunities for local farmers in the Philippines. And at the same time, would benefit solo parents that we target to provide sustainable income-opportunities such as full time employment and part-time job such as online marketing of the artisanal preserves. Giving them the chance to get additional financial support for raising their children as a solo parent. This will also be done thru giving them free training about ecommerce, as we envision that this products were going to produce will soon, in the future be known globally, promoting Philippine products for exportation.
So now, I humbly ask for your financial help and support so that "Aga Dess Artisanal Preserves" will be made possible. The funds earned will be used for capitalization, legalizing the enterprise and other social-related concerns.
Thank you and let's help each other create a harmonious bridge between charity and commerce!
