Vice Mayor Tugna unveils P1M livelihood fund for Bocaueños

BOCAUE, Bulacan — Vice Mayor Atty. Sherwin Tugna publicly unveiled a P 1 million livelihood fund that will provide financial assistance to Bocaueños and build their capacities on livelihood and entrepreneurial ventures.

During media interview on Friday (March 3), Tugna, who is a self-made entrepreneur and former CIBAC partylist representative, said that he secured the fund from the Integrated Livelihood Program of the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE).

Under the program, Bocaue’s working poor and vulnerable and marginalized workers, who are engaged in individual or group livelihood projects, will have access to grant assistance for capacity-building on livelihood.

“Masaya ko pong ibinabalita sa ating mga kababayan na ang inyo pong lingkod ay nakapagbaba sa ating bayan ng isang milyong pisong pondo para mabigyan ng training, puhunan at mga kagamitan ang ating mga kababayang nagsisimula ng kanilang mga maliliit na negosyo,” Tugna said.

“Hindi po kulang sa talento, sipag at determinasyon ang mga Bocaueños. Kadalasan, ang kailangan lamang ay napapanahong alalay at kalinga upang umunlad. Ito ang nais natin abutin sa programang ito,” Tugna added.

Tugna thanked DOLE Secretary Bienvenido Laguesma, DOLE Assistant Regional Director Alex Cruz and DOLE-Bulacan Provincial Director May Lynn Gosun for helping realize the program.

Present during the unveiling of the livelihood fund are Mayor Jonjon JJV Villanueva and Team Solid Lingkod Bayan Councilors Alvin Cotaco, Mira Bautista and Boy Takong Del Rosario.

“Isa lamang ito sa maraming mga makabuluhang programa at serbisyo na itataguyod ng Team Solid Lingkod Bayan sa pangunguna ni Mayor JJV Villanueva. Makakaasa po ang lahat, dahil ang inyong lingkod ay tapat sa kanyang pinanggalingan, patuloy ninyo akong kakampi para lalong mapabuti ang ating kalagayan,” Tugna concluded. (Unlinews Online)
