The Merkado Story


Where advocacy meets enterprise 

A purpose-driven enterprise by the co-founders of The Entree.Pinays, Fides Santos-Arguelles and Grace Guinto. Merkado represents The Entree.Pinays' evolution and growth. It is a marketplace that showcases meaningful must-haves. Where each purchase supports dreams, livelihoods, and community.
Thoughtfully curated by The Entree.Pinays, Merkado will showcase offerings across pantry, home, lifestyle, and learning with a focus on circularity and connection back to our culture and community, and living out the spirit of balikbayan.
