7 micro enterprises in San Jose receive livelihood kits from DTI


TARLAC CITY — Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) awarded livelihood kits to seven micro enterprises in San Jose, Tarlac.

This initiative is through the Negosyo Serbisyo sa Barangay (NSB) program which provides qualified individuals with livelihood kits to restore or improve their businesses.

DTI Provincial Director Agnes Ramirez said barangay Maamot was chosen in consultation with the municipal government while the seven beneficiaries were evaluated in partnership with barangay officials.

“As micro enterprises, they are the backbone of our economy and DTI is always here to serve them,” she stressed.

“We hope that these livelihood kits will give them relief especially at this time of pandemic,” Ramirez furthered.

Business Development Division Chief Zaida Garibay said the program does not end during the awarding of their livelihood kits, but the start of a lifetime partnership between DTI and the beneficiaries.

“You will be continuously assisted by the agency through Negosyo Center San Jose for your business growth and development,” she said.

NSB is a program of DTI that allows a wider reach of business development assistance by bringing government services closer to the people through  partnerships with local government units.
