Cayetanos’ livelihood programs bring opportunities to Sultan Kudarat towns

More opportunities reached distant municipalities of Sultan Kudarat when the offices of Senators Alan Peter and Pia Cayetano provided livelihood programs to residents on June 3 and 4, 2024.

During the two-day program, the senators’ offices visited Isulan and Lebak, where 300 individuals received assistance to enhance their skills and secure permanent employment to boost their incomes.

The senators’ offices visited Isulan on June 3 and delivered aid to 150 individuals, including electricians, vendors, and members of the LGBTQ community. The assistance can help the beneficiaries start their own small businesses, ensuring more financial stability.

The event’s success in Isulan was supported by the mayor’s office, Officer-in-Charge Atty. Arnold Armada, Acting Vice Mayor Carlo Apiado, Assistant Secretary Florentino Loyola Jr., Councilors Arjen Pallasigue and Ryan Dumaran, Sangguniang Kabataan Federation President Weljun Foscablo, and Ailene Loctogan from the Municipal Social Welfare and Development Office (MSWDO).

On June 4, the Cayetano siblings’ offices visited Lebak, where 150 beneficiaries, including solo parents, women, and farmers, were given support.

The assistance can be used to cover the daily expenses and meet the essential needs of the recipients, providing them with much-needed financial relief.

The success of the activity in Lebak was achieved with the help of Mayor Frederick Celestial, Regional Executive Assistant Evelyn Pinongcos, Noraidah Busran from the DSWD, and Councilor Edwin Besana.

The two-day program in Isulan and Lebak was a partnership between the Cayetano siblings and the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) through its Sustainable Livelihood Program (SLP).

SLP aims to help individuals establish micro-businesses for stable income or undergo skills training to secure employment.

Beneficiaries receive either seed capital to start their own businesses or funds for skills training to expand job opportunities.

This activity in Sultan Kudarat demonstrates the Cayetano siblings’ commitment to reaching even the most distant municipalities in the country, providing livelihood programs to uplift the income and opportunities of Filipinos.
