A story of compassion
and PASSION for ENTREPRENEURSHIP
W.O.W. Winning Online Wares was an inception of the PCCI MCI President at the outset of her term in 2017 focused on Micro and Small Enterprises Development.
The initiative had its first phase instituted mid of 2017 with initially Direct Marketing to introduce to the corporate market during PCCI MCI events, during city trade fairs and during chamber’s hosting of potential investors and trade partners.
The expected reduced sales in January was aggravated by the Taal volcano incident, rendering a gloomy revenue forecast for the month and uncertainty for the Valentine month. This signaled some plausible instability especially for the MSME, who to begin with was struggling on business sustainability. Eventually, we were confronted with the Covid 19 pandemic even more alarming dysphoria and business uncertainty
With this relevant program, the logistics requirement was addressed with the birth of the “DALI-very SERVICE”….again, a Filipino Brand name that addresses unemployment and a complementation in the Supply Chain Integration. The licensed tricycle drivers with no franchise are envisioned to expand its market eventually in the value chain, to include the respond to the express delivery or the courier/messenger services of corporate companies and residents of subdivisions and villages.
The launch on September 8, was intentional, being the birth of the blessed Virgin Mother as the inspiration of the program was her loving mother. The timing is apt amid an unprecedented crisis, where businesses are grappling with how to support their workforce and sustain their businesses.

In the midst of the pandemic, various families have lost their breadwinners, many displaced workers are now forced to find income through other means, and a number of businesses have lost their profit as the world shifts into a “new normal.” With the emergence of physical distancing and a myriad of health protocols, brings forth the struggles of small businesses around the country.
Undeterred by the distress brought by COVID-19, a beacon of hope arises for the masses and as service to its members. This online portal W.O.W. (Winning Online Wares) Munti M.A.L.L. (MSME Market Advocating Local Produce for Sustainable Livelihood) is the brainchild of the PCCI Muntinlupa City Inc.'s President, "Angel Mom". This E-commerce initiative has been conceptualized to laud the laden: women of grit, repatriated OFW's, inmates of New Bilibid Prison, PWD's, farmers, fishfolks, and the unemployed, including tis chamber members to keep afloat. The PCCI Muntinlupa City Inc.'s dynamic members and diligent secretariat/Youth Ambassadors: Jamie Macasinag, Chesca Alon, and Carr Paladin made the dream a reality.
In W.O.W. Munti M.A.L.L., our merchants are our priority. We dig deep into the essence of our local craftsmen – we unravel the story behind every ingredient, every piece of fabric, and every hand behind each creation. We write for the hearts of every mother’s sacrifice, every dreamer’s vision finally coming to life, for every fond memory someone left behind. The initiative was born not of the need to gain income through these hard times but rather, it was born to instill hope and confidence for those who need it most.
It is a helping hand to the tricycle drivers who have lost their source of profit and gain, for the flight attendant who is landlocked for the meantime, the elderly couple who’s joy is to bring smiles on people’s faces as they take a bite of food. More importantly, it is for the mother who worries about her child’s expenses and the future they will have, for the student who frantic about online classes and where to get a working laptop from, it is for every manong who wake up for his family, for every manang who juggles different jobs -- it is for them.
The souls of those who carry passion are immortalized by their descendants, and our ambition is to nurture their stories and share them to the world. W.O.W. Munti M.A.L.L., thrives on the drive and inspiration that its merchants have to offer. It aims to not only give them hope but also to sustain legacies that fight to endure even in the face of trying times. In our collaboration with these local businesses as they transition to accommodate the “new normal” we wish to create a community that thrives on the success of kindred spirits. As the world heals, we will also tend to the wounds of those whose hopes were lost. Little by little, we will rebuild and replenish as a collective, with passion and empathy as our foundation – a force that withstands despite the obstacles we are facing in the world today. With our desire for positive change and advocacy to propagate an unconditional sense of humanity through our own sustainable means, join is as we “Trust Local, Shop Local, For a Cause!”
