VILLAVERDE, Nueva Vizcaya, Nov. 9 -– At least 20 members of small and medium enterprises here received on Wednesday Nego Karts and funding capital to enhance their livelihood projects in this town.

The Nego Karts and P5,000 fund were given to each recipient by the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) and the local government unit headed by Mayor Ronelie Valtoribio.

“This assistance was earlier given to the LGU and they were the one who caused the fabrication of Nego Karts, “ said labor officer Willy Licay.

Licay said their agency granted P300,000 for the Nego Karts and capital assistance fund to this town, the first municipality given livelihood in the province to help the marginalized sector in improving their economic status.

“There are still LGUs who will be given with this form of assistance but they must first liquidate the previous fund given to them as required by our office,” Licay said.

Licay said the Nego Kart “Tulong for Mobile Vendors” will be used by the recipients in bicycling their products such as ‘tinapa’ or smoked fish, fruit and vegetables, meat and fish products, nutritional snacks and others around the municipality and neighboring towns including in Solano, the premier commercial town of the province.

Mayor Valtoribio, along with Vice Mayor Jose Dacanay, municipal councilors and representatives from the DOLE, Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), Public Employment Service Office (PESO) and Philippine Information Agency (PIA) distributed the Nego Karts and funding assistance to the recipients at the barangay hall of Poblacion here.

The recipients were Nida Agacita, Angelica Bucalos, Lolita Laya, Nelanie Molina, Fasutino Morales, Petronila Patajo, Edna Urban and Josephine Urban of Barangay Ibung; Estelita Balajadia and Lita Martin of Barangay Pieza; Ruel Ballesteros and Herminigilda Toledo of Barangay Bintawan Sur; Imelda Cablayan and Trinidad Secretario of Barangay Sawmill; Merlita Opena of Barangay Poblacion and Marissa Toledo, Rosemarie Camanzo, Marlyn Cambia, Jesusa Dela Cruz and Rowena Dung-ao, all of Barangay Bintawan Norte.

The recipients expressed their gratitude especially to Mayor Valtoribio who, in turn, thanked the DOLE for providing the assistance. (PNA)
