Gov. Espino awards P2.6-M livelihood assistance to 16 groups


“IPAGPATULOY niyo po na mapaganda ang inyong negosyo at alagaan ang inyong mga empleyado para sa inyong mga pamilya.”

This was bared by Governor Amado I. Espino III as he led the distribution of P2.6-million livelihood assistance to 15 groups and 1 micro, small, medium enterprise (MSME) on January 8 at the Sison Auditorium.

Governor Espino noted that the provincial government has also extended 0% interest to loan payments under the Livelihood Assistance Program (LAP) of the province.

“Ang trabaho po ng provincial government is to extend all programs na kayang ibigay ng provincial government at kahit papaano po ay maliit lang ang interest so isagad na po natin. Pero ang hinihingi lang po naming kapalit ay ang inyong commitment sa inyong negosyo at sa inyong mga empleyado,” said Governor Espino.

Governor Espino signed Executive Order No. 0084-2020 on January 7, providing a zero interest on loans applied under the Provincial Livelihood Assistance Program during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The provincial chief executive also urged the beneficiaries of the LAP to be partners of the provincial government in the fight against the COVID-19 that has dreadfully affected all sectors around the globe.

The 15 groups and 1 MSME, aiding a total of 473 beneficiaries comprised the first batch of LAP beneficiaries this 2020.
