Kidpreneur provides ateneo gradeschoolers with yet again naother avenue to show off their entrepreneurial skills.

 

For the Ateneo grade schoolers, the school fair is a long-awaited event before the beginning of a long and arduous period of studying. It is an opportunity to relax and let loose, but while some may take this opportunity to run around and play, others such as the kids from Kidpreneur use this time to immerse themselves in the experience of entrepreneurship.

18 kids chose to be part of this experience, each having 1 hour to man the stall and roam around the boisterous campus in search of more customers.Their snacks for sale entailed the small yet juicy sisig wrap and the thin yet filling cheese sticks.

The kids were like little balls of energy for the entirety of the two-day fair. They ran, they sold, they laughed, they cooked (putting food in a microwave), but most of all, they learned! So finally, after having sold 400 pieces of sisig wrap and 420 cheese sticks, the little entrepreneurs of MEcO reported feeling happy to have been able to step out of their comfort zones to talk to people.
