Manila, Philippines — Inilalatag ng Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) ang paglalaan ng P15,000 livelihood grant sa small-time vendors at sari-sari store owners na apektado ng coronavirus pandemic.

Ayon kay Secretary Rolando Bautista, mayroong P10 bilyong hindi nagastos sa ilalim ng social amelioration program (SAP).

“Out of the budget, we still have a remaining P10 billion. It’s still within our fund and depending on what will be the instruction of the DBM [Department of Budget and Management] whether to realign this to other projects for recovery or return to the treasury,” ani Bautista.

“Dapat itulong sa mga tao… Saan natin gagastusin ‘yung remaining P10 billion?” tanong ni Recto sa DSWD officials.

“We have already the proposal but as we have mentioned, this should be approved by the Office of the President,” sagot ni Bautista.

Ayon naman kay DSWD director Resty Macuto sa mga senador, inilalatag ang P15,000 sa bawat informal vendors maging sa sari-sari store owners.

“We have already made our proposal for the P10 billion. We will be covering around 664,726 households for the provision of livelihood assistance grant at P15,000. ‘Yun po ang aming plan. If it will be given to us to be utilized for the livelihood assistance grant,” punto ni Macuto.

“Ang ating tinatarget po rito ‘yung ating mga kababayan na mga informal vendor, ‘yung mga nasa palengke, ‘yung nagtitinda ng mga gulay, ‘yung iba sari-sari store. We have already oriented our LGUs for this particular program.”

“Priority po natin dito ‘yung ating mga vendor na nagtitinda po. The local government unit will submit proposal to us then we will assess kung kaya ng ating mga beneficiary rito na mag-undergo into a livelihood,” dagdag pa ng opisyal. RNT/FGDC
