The Kapatid Mentor ME (KMME) has been implemented since 2016 as a 10-module mentorship program that optimizes weekly face-to-face interactions between the mentors and the mentees with the key goal of boosting the entrepreneurial capacity through improved access to Mentorship, Money & Market (i.e., the 3Ms).
Project KAPATID is an initiative of the DTI and the Philippine Center for Entrepreneurship (PCE) to help the country’s micro and small enterprises (MSEs) through three key components:
- The Mentor ME (micro-entrepreneurs) program, a coaching and mentoring approach where large corporations teach MSEs on different aspects of business operations
- The Adopt-an-SSF (Shared Service Facility) program, which aims to help micro-entrepreneurs by providing them access to SSFs in their community
- The Inclusive Business (IB) model where MSEs are linked into large companies’ value chains
