100 indigents in Tarlac receive livelihood

TARLAC CITY — A total of 100 indigents in Tarlac received livelihood assistance from Department of Labor and Employment and the Provincial Government.

Each beneficiary was given an enhanced or start up business kit, which they can use for their roving street food-vending businesses such as fishball, siomai, siopao and juice among others.

“This program in partnership with DOLE aims to enhance the income-generating economic activities in our province through providing livelihood to qualified beneficiaries and improve their capabilities as entrepreneurs,” Governor Susan Yap said.

“We hope that all of you (beneficiaries) will grab this opportunity and will serve as a hope to contribute in strengthening the economic growth of our province, alleviate poverty and improve our standard of living,” she emphasized.

Aside from the kits, all beneficiaries have undergone development trainings on product knowledge, marketing techniques and entrepreneurship and business management to ensure the proper management and sustenance of their livelihood projects.

They are also encouraged to acquire licenses and permits to legalize their businesses.

The Provincial government will monitor and produce updates to ensure the effective and efficient implementation of the program.
