Social Enterprise Community
Catalyzing Impact Investments into Sustainable & Scalable Enterprises Globally
Hapinoy, Philippines: The Hapinoy Store Program focuses on the sari-sari stores in the Philippines (sari-sari is the Filipino word for “many or various kinds”), small neighbourhood convenience stores that sell various things, mostly basic commodities. The Program starts with the infusion of capital (through the resources of the microfinance institution program partner) to and conversion of an existing sari-sari store in a specific town to a Lead Store or in Hapinoy terms, a Community Store. Hapinoy’s ability to reach the “last mile” through its distribution network significantly impacts the lives of multiple stakeholders, including sari-sari storeowners, small producers and consumers.

FAQ - Crowdcube | Crowdfunding business finance from angel investors and 'Armchair Dragons'

FAQ - Crowdcube | Crowdfunding business finance from angel investors and 'Armchair Dragons'...

Why we started Crowdcube
Having founded, and worked for several entrepreneurial businesses we understand how difficult it can be to raise money to start and grow a small business. The task of securing investment is a notoriously perplexing and sometimes sluggish process that can be a struggle at the best of times. In today’s economic climate this has become even more challenging.
We want to give entrepreneurs the opportunity to take control of raising funding from their own network of friends, family, customers and strangers.
We also want to give ordinary people the opportunity to become an armchair Dragon and build their own investment portfolio supporting exciting new British businesses.

CAN you be the solution?

Description
The WMSU-University Student Council, in partnership with the Ateneo de Zamboanga University School of Medicine, recognizes the need for environmental advocacies that posses direct and tangible implications. With this inspiration in mind, the USC in partnership with ADZU SOM, has ventured in an advocacy entitled: I Can Make a Difference. This program is intended to gather empty aluminium soda cans that shall be endorsed to the ADZU SOM in the person of John Michael Dellariarte and shall be used in the latter’s research. In the research, the aluminium cans shall be converted into a solar reflector to aid in Solar Disinfection of water (SODIS) which was recommended by WHO as a simple, non-costly, sustainable means of water disinfection. SODIS is done by filling clear PET bottles with raw water then exposing these bottles to direct unimpeded sunlight for 6-8 hours. Interruption of SODIS by cloudy weather necessitates sunlight exposure for 2 consecutive days. Solar reflectors used in previous studies, decreased the time necessary for total water disinfection to only 1 hour thus extending the convenient applicability of SODIS even to communities with naturally erratic weather.
Mission
Bring simple, cost efficient, sustainable and environment friendly solutions to communities thru inter-sectoral participation of the community, the academe, the LGU, the NGO's and the private sector
