Armed with her desire to explore her entrepreneurial ambitions and love for matcha, Kim Ruiz started Daily Matcha in August 2022. This is her success story.

How far can a PHP 5,000 capital get you? For Daily Matcha owner Kim Ruiz, it was the starting point that led her to earn around PHP 20,000 to PHP 30,000 monthly—less than a year after launching her business. 

Kim’s story is proof that a little can go a long way in business—yes, even if you do not have prior experience when it comes to starting one. After working in corporate for several years, she couldn't shake off the feeling that she wanted to explore her entrepreneurial aspirations and create something that is well and truly hers.

Despite being just 24 years old, she decided to explore these aspirations and discovered that her passion for matcha gave her the opportunity to reach her goals. Here’s how she turned her love for matcha into a successful fast-growing business.
