The perceived impact of business model implementation to the locality were implementation support of various projects/programs, assured social and health support services, and improved economic situation of the locality. The respondents claimed no specific business model of their association, hence adjustment made in response to internal and external environment could not be articulated. There are several challenges confronting the Filipino-Chinese associations in Iloilo City. These are losing interest of the younger generations to do business, hence no interest in joining the association. Threat of closure due to lower price of imported goods compared to locals. Changes in global technology resulted in choice of malls over the Chinese stores because of such amenities as mobile banking, air conditioning and completeness of goods. Seven factors were identified to contribute to the stability of the association. It was suggested that a thorough study on the impact of business model implementation on the members and of the locality be done.
