Minimum wage worker sacks livelihood kits from DOLE

Catarman, Northern Samar – A 27-year old minimum wage earner Angelo Rollo from San Antonio, Northern Samar bags P20,0000.00 worth of kitchen tools from the Department of Labor and Employment-Northern Samar Field Office (DOLE NSFO) to proceed with his new business venture on processing of tocino.

With a current monthly income of P6,000.00, Rollo saysthat he and his family barely meet the daily expenses with his wife as a mere housewife. 

“Makuri talaga kami makahanap sin pagkakakitaan tsadi sa San Antonio, labi na kay isla. Pero makakabulig ini sa amon na madugangan amon income. [It is really difficult for us to look for means of income here in San Antionio, especially that is an island. But this would really help us augment our income.],” says Rollo.

With the use of meat grinder, casserole, steamer, apron, a set of knives and utensils, Rollo is expecting to earn P25,000.00 as sales and a net income of P14,700.00 per month with the residents of Brgy. 1, San Antonio as his target market. He intends to seek the help of his wife and brother for the marketing and the operations.

DOLE NSFO Chief Patria A. Bigcas motioned Rollo to magnify his efforts to grow his business so he can still avail of more income opportunities not only from DOLE, but also from other government agencies. 

“We hope that this assistance will enable you and your family to live better lives. If coupled with hardwork and determination, I know this will go long way”, said Chief Bigcas.

Provision of livelihood assistance is one of DOLE’s contribution for the government’s agenda of reducing poverty. Through these help, small scale businesses are encouraged to pursue growth and development, not only for personal progress, but also to overall economic prosperity. End/Allenia Niña F. Chu
