TARLAC CITY — About seven micro enterprises in Ramos town received livelihood kits from Department of Trade and Industry (DTI).
The recipients, who are residents of barangays Poblacion Center and Poblacion South, are beneficiaries of the Livelihood Seeding Program-Negosyo Serbisyo sa Barangay (LSP-NSB).
“LSP-NSB is in partnership with local government units through the Barangay Development Councils (BDCs) which aims to boost micro enterprises by providing basic business advisory and information, and livelihood packages to qualified individuals affected by calamities,” DTI Provincial Director Agnes Ramirez said.
“We hope that through this, the beneficiaries will be able to continuously grow their business. Negosyo Center Ramos will also remain true to its purpose to assist them in improving their business,” Ramirez added.
For his part, Mayor Diosdado Reginaldo acknowledged the program’s benefits to the micro enterprises.
“This assistance given to you by DTI is a big opportunity, a great help for you to continue your business despite the COVID-19 crisis,” Reginaldo noted.
He also advised the recipients to utilize the use of their livelihood kits.
“The only thing I ask from you is to take care of these materials and enrich your business potentials not only for your personal gain, but also for the whole Ramos,” he stressed.
Livelihood kits beneficiaries were evaluated through the assistance of the BDCs.
Qualified individuals include those affected by natural and human-induced calamities such as pandemic.
