THE good news is that the 10 families involved in the “kariton” livelihood project of the Mambulao local government are doing well.
All of them are regularly repaying the loan of P2,000 they obtained under the project, which means they are making good sales every day.
And they are making at the least P150 from a half-day work, to a high of P450 working whole day.
Cynthia Canoy, the coordinator for the Sulong Pangkabuhayan sa Kariton, a livelihood project launched by the local government recently, said the second batch of 10 recipients are undergoing screening.
They will be launched soon, she said.
“We made a visit of the first batch recipients and learned from them they are doing well,” she added.
“May ilan na pong nakatapos magbayad ng loan nila,” according to Canoy.
“May mga araw na mahina ang tinda, pero sinisikap nilang tuloy-tuloy ang negosyo,” she said, referring to their food-vending business, which they carry out through a push cart lent to them by the LGU.
Each of the recipients has been assigned an area where he/she should do the selling to avoid competition.
