DOLE RO8 awards over P900K livelihood grants to 57 IS workers

 

The project, entitled “Diversified Livelihood Project-Batch 1”, was implemented through direct administration by the DOLE-North Leyte Field Office (NLFO) headed by Ms. Bernardita M. Navarra. Said project was approved and charged to the agency funds under the DOLE Integrated Livelihood Program (DILP).

 

Smiles were evident on the faces of the beneficiaries as they received their respective livelihood projects. Jovelyn Militante, one of the project beneficiaries, was so happy to finally have her own sewing machine, which she can now use for her dressmaking business.

 

 

 

“I am so thankful to DOLE for giving me this opportunity to earn more through this sewing machine. This will really enable me to provide for the needs of my family,” said Militante (in Waray-waray dialect).

 

The diversified project was composed of different individual businesses that includes vegetable farming, food vending, upholstery shop, welding shop, pedicab driving, baking, dressmaking and hog fattening.

 

More livelihood releases are expected to be done in the next months as there are still two batches of the said project which will benefit some seventy-one (71) beneficiaries.

 

The DILP is one of the flagship programs of DOLE and is one of government’s intervention to help the poor, vulnerable and marginalized Filipino workers.
