The Department of Science and Technology Region 02 (DOST R02) sealed a Tripartite Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) for the establishment of oneSTore Hub with the Local Government Unit of Piat (LGU Piat) headed by Mayor Leonel De Guzman and Ms. Susan Pagulayan, owner of the Susan’s Bakeshop on August 26, 2022.
The partnership brings a significant boost to DOST R02 and LGU Piat’s mission to serve the MSMEs in the municipality to expand their market by allowing them to sell and deliver their products through the online platform and the hub. Mayor De Guzman expresses their gratitude to DOST R02 for all the provided technical assistance for their MSMEs, especially on Food Development.
OneSTore was introduced in 2015 to help promote the use of the platform in correlation with DOST’s Small Enterprises Technology Upgrading Program (SETUP) and it was designed as an online platform to help local MSMEs grow their business by expanding their market online. It was later expanded to different components such as the oneSTore Hub to provide assistance to the MSMEs’ needs. (DOST 2)
