A Banana A Day Keeps The Doctor Away!
Mighty Banana Chips is a micro business which is under the RPD Food Products owned and managed by our family. Officially operated last January 2007. We started a working capital of P 18,000.00 for raw materials and utensils. Both my husband and I had undergo trainings & seminars conducted by both government and private agencies. We have also attended series of trade fairs here in Davao City hosted by different agencies. Last July 2007, we particiated the “Banana Cardava Day Contest” sponsored by a non-government organization and we have got the 3rd placer of the event.
Mighty Banana Chips is a product of a "double inspiration." The first inspiration comes from the expertise of Mr. Reynaldo P. Deodor, owner of RPD Food Products, as an expertise organizing and community development worker, and on January 2007, his decision to finally build his own enterprise and put all hid experience through the test of fire. Today, RPDFP supplies its one-of-a-kind flavored banana chips to several elementary schools, training centers, offices, and even to a small retail stores on a consignment and cash basis. RPD Food Products is Mr. Deodor's own practical "thesis" on participatory enterprise development.
