The problems of the chicha-corn industry - AGOO CHICHA-CORN
It is a reality that almost all businesses especially these times are having their ups and downs. The high and unstable prices of fuel products are triggering the increasing prices of commodities and services.

During the early years of our chicha-corn business, it generated very good profit compared today. The reasons are: there were only few competitors those times and the prices of basic commodities and services were much lower. And so the business thrived.

Then as years passed, our chicha-corn business felt gradually the pressure of the whips of the  increase of prices of our basic commodities and services. And more competitors are coming out in the market outlets.

These days, our chicha-corn business is suffering because of the very high prices of our main raw material, the white glutinous corn. And it is not only our chicha-corn firm that is affected but also the others in our region.

But then, life must go on... and so does the business. If there's a will, there's a way... We believe that there are still many ways for the industry to stay put.

    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!
