St. Padre Pio Enterprises Inc., led by Jacqueline Dupaya, is a trusted supplier of corporate giveaways to a number of businesses. Running with just 10 employees when St. Padre Pio Enterprises started in 2008, they have grown by leaps and bounds, with more than 80 employees working to fulfill their contracts today.
Similar to the challenges that most small and medium enterprises (SMEs) face, St. Padre Pio Enterprises went through many challenges to get to where they are now. One key recurring issue is funding their growth opportunities.
As Jacqueline puts it, “Over the years, you get more clients, you get more customers, you get more orders. And our problem is our funds are limited. Because when we deliver the items, it doesn’t mean we outright get the payment. Of course, we have payment terms.”
Fortunately, Jacqueline found a solution to these challenges through a referral from a friend. Watch as Jacqueline shares how St. Padre Pio Enterprises Inc. overcame these challenges by using innovative funding solutions from First Circle
