65 sari-sari store owners in Ilocos Sur get livelihood start-up kits

ILOCOS SUR, Aug. 2 (PIA) - A total of 65 sari-sari store owners in the province received livelihood start-up kits from the Livelihood Seeding Program - Negosyo Serbisyo sa Barangay (LSP-NSB) and the Pangkabuhayan sa PagBangon at Ginhawa (PBG) of the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI).

The LSP-NSB and the PBG aid for the extension of livelihood assistance to micro enterprises in priority areas to resume their businesses after devastating incidents and calamities, including armed conflicts.

DTI Ilocos Sur Provincial Office, headed by Provincial Director Grace Lapastora, awarded Php8,000.00-Php10,000.00 worth of grocery items to the sari-sari store owners from 14 barangays in the three municipalities of the province which are identified by the Philippine Army as Ending Local Communist Armed Conflict (ELCAC) area.

The Philippine Army has identified a total of 39 barangays in the 12 municipalities of Ilocos Sur as ELCAC areas.

These programs, which are one of the government’s responses to coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic and to contribute to business continuity in the country, also provided training on entrepreneurial development to the beneficiaries.

During the turn-over of the livelihood kits recently in Salcedo town, an identified ELCAC area, Mayor Leopoldo Gironella, Jr., thanked the DTI for including Salcedo as one of the beneficiaries of the program.

Pagyamantayo iti programa ti DTI kadagitoy naisagana a groceries a maipaay kanyayo ket nagasatkayo ta dakayo ti nanumo a napili a pangtedan kadagitoy nga isu pay a mainayun kadagiti karga ti storesyo, ket kasta met a pagyamanmi met ti anusyo a nakikaadda kanyami ditoy. Sapay koma ta makatulong dagitoy nga abasto tapno makapagtuloy ti narugianyo a store kadagiti lugaryo (We thank the DTI for providing these livelihood kits, and you (the beneficiaries) are blessed for having been chosen as the recipient of these goods that shall be added to your respective sari-sari stores. We would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude for being with us today. We hope that these will help improve the business that you have started)”, said Mayor Gironella.

Imelda C. Barroga, one of the beneficiaries from Nagbukel town, also expressed her gratitude for being one of the recipients of the PBG.

Daytoy a naawatmi ket mangtulong kadakami a mangal-langon kadagiti napukaw a pagganaran idi imposition of enhanced community quarantine (ECQ). Ket mapasigurado ti kaadda iti kangrunaan a kasapulan kabayatan a ti pagilian ket adda iti sidong ti quarantine (This livelihood assistance will help us recover from the income we lost during the ECQ. It will also ensure the availability of basic goods in our area while the country is still under quarantine),” she said.

“You are all lucky that you have been chosen as beneficiaries of the DTI's PBG program. Make your business prosper. And always remember that we are here to secure you, be a good citizen and all together we achieve a peaceful municipality," said Capt. Bryan Malinao of the 81st Infantry Battalion, 7th Infantry Division of the Philippine Army, during the turn-over of livelihood kits in Nagbukel town.

The DTI, in partnership with various local government units, Philippine Army and Office of Civil Defense, will continue to award livelihood assistance as it recognizes the importance of small businesses as a source of basic goods in every community in the country amid the COVID-19.

Para sa mga Pulahan

Kung narito ka ngayon. Marahil ay isa ka sa mga napadpad o mas magandang sabihin ay isa ka sa marites na nakatambay sa page ng mga kakampinks. Kung tama ako, para sayo talaga to!  Para sa mga PULAHAN. Wala ba kayong page na nagmamahal sa inyo kaya andito kayo sa page ng mga kakampinks? :) Salamat pa rin sa pagdalaw kahit ang purpose niyo talaga ay ang ibash kami. ✌️

Bakit Uto-Uto ang mga Pulahan?

Yung tipong habang tumitingin ka sa feed mo may nakita kang nag-share ng mga conspiracy theory. Bakit ba naeenganyo sila? Paniwalang paniwala sila. Basahin ang maikling kasagutan tungkol dito. It makes them feel special and different. It gives them a feeling of being better than others, of having their eyes opened to a 'truth' that others don't see. That's why some call non-believers 'sheeple.' I think it's similar to the feeling we get whenever we learn an obscure yet interesting piece of trivia. The thought of "No one else knows it!" I also think conspiracies appeal to the way humans think, especially now. A desire to search for patterns. There has to be reason and purpose for anything. But this is not right! I still blame the lack of the fundamental research skills that needs to be taught in school. I believe you get to have a full subject on your 4th year, but investigative skills and fact checking should be honed at a young age.

'Di kami nagkamali, we already expected those things to happen... You're making fun of our opinions pero 'di niyo magets na para 'yun sa ikabubuti ng lahat. Now, why so sudden bigla kayong nagreklamo? eh diba ginusto niyo 'yan, honestly dito samin nagsasabing nagsisisi sila sa naboto nila, for me hindi na kasalanan ng mga politiko na naloko nila kayo dahil there are so many evidences na. Pero all of you still chose to be fooled and deceived by them. But it's too late na eh nakaupo na sila sa pwesto na hindi nila deserve. Pero ito na lang... Let our response be, GINUSTO NIYO 'YAN!
