ICYMI: Two Cordillerans were Keynote Speakers at the CFO Virtual Summit 2021

Cordillerans continue to make inroads in both the national and international fronts.


James Sali Dongla of Philex, Tuba, Benguet, and PLTC Kimberly Esteban Molitas of Kibungan, Benguet, joined a distinguished roster of speakers for the CFO Virtual Summit 2021 on December 14.

As per their press release, the CFO Virtual Summit 2021 is "a two-day event with a 4-point agenda of thought-provoking talks and actionable insights from Top Executives and Finance Technology disruptors who are re-defining the future of finance."

Mr. Dongla is the CEO and Founder of MyServicesShop Inc., a web and app-based service platform with numerous initiatives in the works, including the Crypto Master Traders and the ServiCoin Project.

His heart for ServiCoin is to help the middle class and regularly employed people. As a result, the concept of "service" served as the inspiration for his project's name.

𝐒𝐞𝐫𝐯𝐢𝐂𝐨𝐢𝐧 is said to be the digital currency that empowers the powerless. It is organic and works to attract supporters not from the wealthy and powerful, but from the grassroots level where good and decent hardworking Filipinos are educated to purchase the asset (ServiCoin). This is in anticipation of its value increasing as it progresses along its unique Crypto Path -- Development & Usage (DU).

"Consider me a dreamer who wants to share the opportunity that God has given me with others. We are pioneers in the crypto space (Crypto Master Traders, a crypto trading group), blockchain experts, and having our own cryptocurrency (ServiCoin) is the cherry on top." - James S. Dongla.

Dongla, a bi-vocational preacher and entrepreneur, lives blissfully in Baguio with his lovely wife, Jenny, and their four adorable children. His parents were from Sabangan and Tadian, Mt. Province but they settled in Philex, Tuba, Benguet.

Molitas, on the other hand, has recently launched a new initiative dubbed as the "Black Gold Project," an endeavor that is all about discovering obscure coffee farms and training coffee growers while simultaneously working on the development of a coffee product line. The goal is to assist these farmers in rebuilding their livelihoods, thus encouraging peace and tourism in the region and across the nation.

Her passion was evident in her discussion, "Sustainable Investments Shaping the Future of Business." She champions investing in those who generate the products, particularly farmers.

"If we build the lives of our farmers, we protect the future of our economy," she said.

Molitas, a self-confessed coffee junkie, was born in Baguio City's Lower Quirino Hill and reared in Kibungan, Benguet. As previously reported in IGOROTAGE, she is "one of the most influential women in Asia." She is currently the Assistant Chief, Liaison Office of the PNP for the Office of the President.
