With a little help from our friends

Ayala Land, Inc. (ALI) recently launched “Alagang AyalaLand” to provide livelihood opportunities to social enterprises by, among others, giving these enterprises their own spaces in ALI developments nationwide.

The rent-free spaces are aimed at jumpstarting the growth of small businesses, in turn fuelling local consumption and helping to accelerate the country’s recovery.

“Our various business units—from the estates, residential and commercial groups, will support our goal of nurturing at least 300 social enterprises in our malls and properties by December of this year,” said ALI vice president and head of Alagang AyalaLand council Manny A. Blas.

There are now a total of 289 social enterprises primarily set up in Ayala Malls nationwide.

One of them is Bukid ni Bogs (shown in photo), a Zamboanga-based organic farm and soap-making business that elevates the status of women farmers while teaching people about the importance of an organic way of life.  

Marianne Dagohoy’s Pure Bites enterprise, a provider of healthier food choices such as salad meals, nutrient-filled smoothies and tofu dishes,  boosts awareness about a healthy diet for Filipinos.
