These facilities will help them in the operation including the marketing, production, and even in the financial assistance.The LGU and Policy makers should improve the information dissemination of the Magna Carta for MSMEs, BMBEs Act, and the Go Negosyo Act. Since the result of the study is that there are still enterprises that are not aware on the programs of the three legislations. Seminars and trainings can be conducted to increase the awareness of the MSMEs.Private and state universities should also improve the awareness of the students on the programs given by the Magna Carta for MSMEs, BMBEs Act, and Go Negosyo act so that in the future when they established their own enterprises they can take advantage the availability of the programs given by the three legislations.
