By Virgilio Sar. Maganes
ASINGAN- Twenty six beneficiaries of the Pamilyang Pilipino Pantawid Program (4Ps) received 13 food carts for their livelihood projects from ASHAS Enterprises in coordination with the municipal government of this town through the Municipal Social Welfare and Development Office (MSWDO).
The food carts will be used for the selling of gulaman, burgers, potato fries, goto and scrambled ice to augment the family income of the 4Ps beneficiaries from the various villages of the town.
Aside from supplying the food carts, the ASHAS Enterprise represented by manager Anicia Desacula provided free training on proper food preparation, personality development, sanitation, and pricing.
ASHAS Enterprise also provided materials and initial supplies to the beneficiaries to start their livelihood projects.
The turn over of the food carts was graced by Mayor Heidee Chua and Vice Mayor Carlos Lopez Jr.
Chua urged the beneficiaries to take care of their food carts as source of livelihood.
“Nobody will be liable but you if this program will not succeed. ASHAS Enterprise, the MSWDO, and the municipal government are very supportive of the program. You have to take good care of it and make this initial business grow, not only for yourselves but for your families,” Chua said.
