TESDA, Coca-Cola to give 40,000 scholarship for women in micro-business





Here's another scholarship from Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA). But this time, for 40,000 women who own sari-sari stores and carinderias.

The scholarship will be given in partnership with Coca-Cola Philippines under Sari-Sari Store Training and Access to Resources (STAR) program.


According to TESDA, the objective of the program is to the uplift livelihood of women through micro-retail business.

  • business and life skills training
  • access to finance and financial services
  • access to merchandising support and business assets




Who is the target of scholarship?

  • Distressed women
  • Returning overseas Filipino workers (OFWs)
  • Wives of soldiers and policemen
The star program recognizes the significant role of women and the Cola-Cola company made a commitment to empowering 5 million women by 2020.

Filipino women, especially full-time homemakers with small children, often choose to put up sari-sari stores and carinderias to augment their household income as these small businesses are often home-based and can be managed on top of doing the chores and tending the kids.





If you are interested in the program, contact your provincial or regional TESDA Office.
