Almost P1-million worth of livelihood assistance in the form of NegoKart were awarded by DOLE Cavite to thirty (30) displaced workers in Bacoor City, Cavite on February 08, 2021. The awarding ceremony held at the Bacoor Government Center was led by the DOLE Cavite Officer-in-Charge Engr. Joseph P. Gacosta and Bacoor City Mayor Lani Mercado. 

Each beneficiary was granted with one NegoKart package worth P30,000.00 which they can easily use to start a mobile food vending business .  Included in the NegoKarts are blenders, cooking stoves with gas tanks, packs of different processed street food and fruit shake mix powder, among others.  

The Kabuhayan Program Assistance is one of the livelihood projects of DOLE that generally aims to mitigate the adverse economic impacts of COVID-19 pandemic to employees who were affected by retrenchment, closure, or downsizing of establishments.  Specifically, the program hopes to provide livelihood assistance that will serve as economic buffer for workers who experienced loss of income due to on-going pandemic situation.             

Selection of beneficiaries was conducted by the recipient city, to ensure that the opportunity will be equally distributed to most in need beneficiaries.  Two (2) to three (3) beneficiaries from the seventeen different barangays of Bacoor were able to avail  of the Kabuhayan Assistance Program. 

 

 

Mayor Lani Mercado expressed her heartfelt gratitude to DOLE. “On behalf of the City of Bacoor, lubos po kaming nagpapasalamat sa muling pagbibigay ng DOLE ng livelihood assistance sa mga mamamayan ng Bacoor na lubhang naapektuhan ng pandemya,” she mentioned.

 Ang kalusugan ng katawan ay may kaugnayan sa kalusugan ng pag-iisip.  Sama-sama, Tulong-tulong sa Bacoor,” she added.
