“KMME is a program that equips startup and existing entrepreneurs for present and future endeavors. It also prepares not only the business but also the minds behind it. KMME is truly a motivational drive to success.”

Due to a a global reduction of workforce on a multinational company in the year 2014, Nixon Q. de la Torre, prepared himself and informed his family regarding his employment status. From then, he and his wife had already planned to do business and with his experience as a salesman they formulated their own product which is now known as Sucre House of Concoctions which produces unique quality products including ice cream sandwich, all natural juices and desserts that are also available for delivery.

Moreover, his exposure to Department of Science and Technology (DOST) assistance project and Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) seminars and workshops conditioned him to expand his business. He was also encouraged to attend a joint project seminar in Cagayan de Oro.

He then enrolled as one of the mentees of the Go Negosyo and DTI’s program Kapatid Mentor Me. From this mentorship, Nixon applied all his acquired skills and knowledge in accounting most specially on product costing. Also, he accumulated technical skills on proper labelling.

To date, Sucre House of Concoctions is now producing high quality products at a low price base and is always open for costumer’s demand and suggestions. They also have linkage with DTI and other government agencies that will further help their product get exposed in wider markets.

For Nixon, KMME is a program that equips startup and existing entrepreneurs for present and future endeavors. It also prepares not only the business but also the minds behind it. KMME is truly a motivational drive to success.
