PGMA releases P1.05-M employment fund in Surigao del Norte

At least P1.05 million fund from President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo’s employment program was released in Surigao del Norte recently.

The money was released through the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) Patinio-Banban-Fabio (PBF) Self-Employment Assistance (SEA) - Kabayan group in Taganaan, Surigao del Norte.

The check was personally handed by DSWD Regional Director Mercedita Jabagat to Taganaan Mayor Cesar Diaz. It is meant to finance expanded micro-enterprise projects of its members.

Diaz also gave the check to Susan Rubantes, PBF SEA-Kabayan president.

Jabagat said some of the funding is for 48 individuals who have been provided with additional capital to their existing livelihood projects such as poultry raising, rice farming, sari-sari store, banagan culture, buy and sell of basic commodities, food processing, fishing, piggery, fish cage and food vending.

The region’s DSWD chief also said the money will also be used to help the members get affordable basic shelter provisions or use it for home improvement.

She exhorted the beneficiaries to pay their dues religiously because the amount they pay will also be used to finance other groups that wanted to avail of SEA-Kabayan.

Rubantes expressed her gratitude to DSWD for the technical and financial assistance.

“I promised to do my responsibilities as president of the group and enjoined my members to manage their respective businesses well so they can pay the weekly dues,” she said.

SEA Level II - Kabayan is a follow-up program for beneficiaries/associations that have been graduated from SEA-K Level I and have manifested the capability to manage larger amount of credit assistance.

Surigao del Norte Gov. Robert Ace Barbers also expressed his gratitude to President Arroyo’s livelihood and employment program in the province. (PNA)
