DAVAO DEL NORTE, March 31 (PIA) – Twenty-five members of the Kalingawan sa Plaza Association in the Municipality of Asuncion have received P375,000 cash assistance from the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD).

DSWD-Field Office Region XI formally turned over to Local Government Unit (LGU) of Asuncion the P375,000 “seed fund” check under the Sustainable Livelihood Program (SLP) on March 11, 2021 at Purok 2, Barangay Cambanogoy, Asuncion.

With this, the 25 members of the Kalingawan sa Plaza Association, being the beneficiaries of SLP, will each receive P15,000.

According to Asuncion Mayor Eufracio Dayaday Jr., this seed fund of the national government will be given to the qualified beneficiaries as identified by the LGU and DSWD.

Through the LGU’s “Asikaso sa Negosyo ug Trabaho" program, the members of Kalingawan sa Plaza Association were identified as the qualified beneficiaries.

Dayaday added that this will serve as the beneficiaries’ initial or additional capital for their businesses during the pandemic.  

Aside from SLP, DSWD said that there is also the Livelihood Assistance Grants (LAG), which is a recovery and rehabilitation program for families whose livelihood have been affected by the quarantine measures brought by the pandemic. (Jan Vincent Leuterio/PIA-XI and Asuncion FB Page)
