From employee to partner


    Martiniano “Degs” Valencia is a simple man with not-so-simple dreams. As a young boy, he was already honing his entrepreneurial spirit, selling fresh carabao’s milk and boiled corn in the streets of his hometown of Sta. Rita, Pampanga.

    Valencia was delighted when Alfamart, the first and only Super Minimart chain in the Philippines, became his business partner and set up a branch in his hometown.

    After going into business with Alfamart, Valencia said his quality of life has vastly improved. 

    “We are extremely grateful to our partners like Degs in Sta. Rita, Pampanga,” said Alfamart COO, Harvey T. Ong. “With the help of partners, we’re able to expand to more communities. Each store we open is a step towards our advocacy of promoting community development, especially in areas outside Metro Manila,” he said.

    Ong said that Alfamart is looking for more partners as it continues to expand.
