“As a young boy after the war in Manila, I saw poverty all around me,” recalls James, “that was brought upon by the devastation of war. I thought to myself, I need to do something to clean up the mess all around me. I saw business as a means to make life better for me and my family. I suppose that motivated me to become a businessman when I was still a very young boy. I resolved to help my father in his trading store to help the business grow. I did everything I could to assist him in the day to day activities of the business. I also tried to learn on my own, how to start little ventures to see how I can make it on my own. My intention was to start the seeds of expansion of the main business line to make the enterprise grow.”
