Their non-food will be displayed and available for sale this whole month of May dubbed by the Association of Negros Producers (ANP) as "the products of our young Negrense entrepreneurs from the Creative Little Minds" or the Negrense Kidtrepreneurs.
"Kidtrepreneurs" is in line with the Association of Negros Producers (ANP) advocacy of developing entrepreneurship among Negrenses, the value system involved starts at home and at an early age.
This time, ANP has partnered with kid entrepreneurs from nine groups and the kidtrepreneurs’ exhibit was made possible through the efforts of Creative Little Minds’ Kitkat Lobaton as event organizer, ANP’s Vice President for Advocacy Cris Villacin, Showroom’s marketing head Teena Rodriguez designer-consultant from Germany, Anna Kamphues.
The participating nine groups were Praying Kids, Junky and Bar, DIP ko, Sweet Tooth, Crepe Your Own, Iron Kids, Shoe ‘Em All, Sew Fab and ONCE.
Kamphues and Villacin last May 12, demonstrated beads making using recycled
newspapers and magazines and kids had fun crafting jewelry pieces for Mothers’ Day.

ANP manages the Negros Showroom at the Central Citywalk, Robinsons Place Bacolod and at the Ground Floor of the Lourdes C Building, Lacson-9th Streets, Bacolod City.
Thus, an event was also held at Negros Showroom along Lacson Street At Showroom Lacson, last May 12, led by the group of May Cueva’s, the Creative Biz Buddies.
