The Entrep Eskwela or the Grassroots Entrepreneurship and Management program (GEM) was created to promote and develop microenterprises and livelihood projects to increase sales, assets, profits and the net worth of its participants. GEM helps those who join the program learn the various aspects of enterprise and self management by authoring and implementing over 100 modules gathered into several training courses under an umbrella consisting of three key learning areas. The primary audience of GEM is clients of microfinance institutions, primarily women borrowers with livelihood and micro enterprises.
The modules and courses were designed by experts in training small and medium scale entrepreneurs to be very relevant and responsive to the learning preferences of the targeted grassroots audience. They are predominantly audio-visual and presented in Filipino. The materials have been translated into different languages for easy access: English for the high school and BS Entrepreneurship programs of Bayan, and also Visayan, Hiligaynon, Maguindanaon, and Bicolano.
