A nice location will be near a tertiary hosp or a busy market (especially near jeepney terminals) because to will be competing with lots of pharmacies that's been there already. Senior citizen discount is another problem. They will ask from you 20% where in fact you will just sell a drug/medicine will just a 7 to 8% mark- up from the catalogue price. That means you will have an outright losses of up to 12 to 13% especially if you are just planning to set up a medium- size drugstore.

Its also important to give your customers the impression that you are selling a drug/medicine at a reasonable price. There are lots of distibutors available. Find the one that gives a best deal i.e. 5+1, 30 days PDC, etc.

i just learned that mercury drug is going to make its presence felt in the location i am eyeing kaya malabo na 'to.  although i suppose if another opportunity comes along, it would be worth the consideration...again :hihi:

Ako ay interesado ring magtayo ng Botika. Nag-a-apply ako ngayon sa isang NGO para maging operator ako ng isang outlet ng BOTIKA ng BARANGAY (BnB).

Proyekto ito ni PGMA sa layuning maihatid sa mga Pinoy ang murang gamot. Generics din ang mga gamot na itinitinda sa mga Botika ng Barangay.

Target ng gobyerno na magkaroon ng isang BnB outlet sa bawat magkatabing barangay (1 BnB outlet na mag-se-serve sa 2 barangays).

Ayon sa NGO Coordinator na nakausap ko, kailangan kong mag-seminar sa kanila (DOH representative ang magsasagawa ng seminar) at mag bayad ng P3,500 para sa processing fee, permits at bayad (yata) sa supervising Pharmacist.

Kailangan ko din daw magbayad ng P10,000 bilang "bond". Pero dahil personal akong ginagarantiyahan ng NGO Coordinator na kilala ko, iwe-waive na ang P10,000 bond.

P25,000 halaga ng mga gamot ang initial inventory  na LIBRENG ibibigay  DAW sa iyo ng DOH kapag magsisimula ka nang mag-operate ng BnB. Bahala ka na sa replenishment ng mga gamot na nabebenta mo. Itatawag mo lang ang order mo sa NGO Coordinator at sila na raw ang mag-dedeliver ng gamot sa outlet mo.

Sa ngayon hindi pa ako nakakapag-seminar sa DOH.  Titingnan pa nila itong pwesto ko. Kung maa-aprobahan ay baka magsimula na ang seminar.


sa tingin  ko ok itong pharmacy franchising... ang tanong ko lang po eh paano pag wala na sa powesto si gloria.....susuportahan pa kaya ang programang ito ng susunod na president???? paano na kung hindi?? ano na ang mangyayari sa invesment mo?

Sa P3,500 na investment sa Botika ng Bayan ay hindi na tayo dapat magdalawang-isip.

P25,000 worth of different generic drugs ang libreng ibibigay sa iyo kapag naging operator ka ng BnB.(LIBRE....yun ang sabi  sa akin ng NGO Coordinator...ive-verify ko pa po ito kapag nag-seminar na ako)

Kapag naubos na ang initial inventory, may bayad na raw syempre yung susunod na order mo.  

Siguro naman hindi na tayo lugi dyan. Pag napaubos mo ang P25K na unang stock mo...tumubo na ng malaki ang pinuhunan mong P3,500.

Yan din ang isa sa plano kong itanong sa seminar. Sa tingin ko pwede.

Ayon sa nabasa ko, kumukuha (nagha-HIRE(?)) ng supervising Pharmacist ang DOH para sa mga Botika ng Barangay Outlets.

Isang representative ng DOH ang magbibigay ng seminar thru an NGO sa lugar nyo.

Pwede ka mag-inquire sa Munisipyo ninyo. Palagay ko alam nila.

Thanks for the info walrus,
Does one have to have any specific qualification, like pharmacist license?
And why would they give you 25k worth of free meds if you only paid 3.5K?
Yeah, I saw this program on Living Asia channel.

One does not have to be a pharmacist to become an operator of Botika ng Barangay (if I understand them right).

The P3,500 fee they require is inclusive of the business permit and, as i've been told, for the "Supervising Pharmacist" (whatever that means).

The "free" P25k worth of generics drugs as initial inventory is, for my understanding, their way of "public service" (if you know or understand what I mean).
