Our chicha-corn business - AGOO CHICHA-CORN
Our family has been in the chicha-corn business for already 15 years. And it is providing us fair income. During our full operations we employ 25 to 30 workers. Our main raw material is white glutinous corn. And we buy approximately 70 to 100 tons of corn annually from various farmers in La Union, Ilocos Sur, Abra and Cagayan... It is nice to feel that this business is helping others as employees, suppliers and buyers.. But then, just like any other business, there's a lot of responsibilities to do and to comply with in order to stay put. Moreover, sufficient capital, efficient workers, good-paying market outlets, continuing product development, patience, hard work and righteousness are needed.

    I'm Emma Teresa S. Mariñas, the author of this website. I co-own/manage this small scale enterprise, Agoo Chicha-corn & Food Products, with my husband , Edwin P. Mariñas.

    Our motto is "If we can't find jobs, we create jobs".

    Our warm and sincere gratitude  to the Department of Trade & Industry - most especially to DTI La Union
    Provincial Office and to DTI Region 1 Office, to the North Luzon Growth Quadrangle Area (North Quad) - Program Management Office, and to the Philippine National IT Standards (PhilNITS) Foundation, for giving us, entrepreneurs, series of trainings on computer literacy and applications, etc. Thus enabling us to create our own website and can now say "Hello World!...".

    Edwin and I are publishing this website to promote our products with the aim of acquiring more buyers not just nationwide but also worldwide. And alongside with this is our goal to inspire and encourage also other micro, small and medium entrepreneurs (MSMEs) especially the beginners to be dedicated and cooperative businessmen to attain something. MSME's should not hesitate to approach the proper government agencies and seek assistance to address their concerns and issues. MSME's should welcome the various assistance and programs that the concerned government agencies are offering them on their platter for their benefits, just like what we did to this particular program that DTI offered us.

    God bless us all!
