“Boy Mani” gets DOLE-X Nego Kart

 

 

Iligan City --- The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE-X) Lanao del Norte Provincial Field Office (LDN PFO) thru its Accredited Co- Partner (ACP) First Quarter Storm Survivors Dekada 70 (FQSS D’ 70) released a Negosyo Kart livelihood assistance on 20 August 2018 at the DOLE- X LDN PFO, this city.

 

DOLE- X LDN PFO Chief Remegio D. Cabañog reported that a Negosyo Kart (Negosyo sa Kariton) livelihood assistance amounting to PhP 19,890.00 was given to Mr. Bernie Baguio of Saray, this city. Mr. Baguio aka “Boy Mani”, as DOLE- X LDN PFO staff fondly calls him, being their long term “suki” of roasted peanuts that he used to sell, is a hardworking father of two, who lives down in a poverty lane at the suburb of Saray.

 

Chief Cabañog explained that Nego-Kart is a project for ambulant vendors on major cities of the country. The project assists the ambulant vendors in making their existing livelihood undertakings grow into profitable and sustainable business thus, making their income level at par with that of the minimum wage earners, at the least.

  

As gratitude, Boy Mani expressed, “Wala ko kapanagang nga makadawat diay ko ug dako na grasya sa dihang walay undang nako nga pag- pamaligya ug mani diha sa buhatan sa DOLE Iligan. Walay kasudlan ang akong dakong kalipay sa dakong tabang nga gihatag nako sa DOLE. Daghang salamat sa DOLE hinaut pa nga mas daghan pa ang matabangan ninyo na pareha nako nga kabus. (I did not expect to receive a livelihood financial assistance from DOLE from my frequent selling of peanuts in their office. I cannot contain my happiness with this gratitude. With this, I really thank DOLE and I am hopeful that many poor ambulant vendors like me will also be given assistance.)”

 

The DOLE assists in the acquisition of a vending cart and accessory livelihood tools; provision of working capital for procurement or production of marketable goods or services (raw materials and other inputs); trainings on production skills, entrepreneurship and business management; and application of business permit to operate in the designated area. The ambulant vendors will be assisted in forming their organization that will promote mutual aid and protection such as collective savings mobilization for social protection coverage under SSS/PhilHealth and others common concerns.
