I would like to share that for me, working at PRIMEX is such a wonderful blessing because when I look back 10 years ago, I could say that I’ve advanced a lot professionally and personally. I’ve gained enough knowledge and skills and wisdom that greatly helped in fulfilling my duties and responsibilities, not to mention the financial growth. All thanks to the kindness and generosity of the PRIMEX founder, Ma’am Vi, which I’m sure my colleagues and fellow awardees would agree as well.Ms. Rutchel A. Macasa
