MORE LIVELIHOOD ASSISTANCE FROM MAYOR GORDON AND FIRST LADY ANNE
Mayor James “Bong” Gordon, Jr. and Olongapo City First Lady and Zambales Vice-Gov. Anne Marie Gordon have extended another Livelihood Capital Assistance (LCA) to 9 beneficiaries at the flag raising ceremonies on January 25, 2010 at the Rizal Triangle Multi-Purpose Center.
The LCA aims to give Olongapenos an initial fund or capital to start their own businesses or any income-generating projects that will eventually support their family’s basic needs.
The nine (9) recipients of LCA are the following:
1. Josefina Zerrudo- Brgy. Mabayuan
2. Adoracion Santos- Brgy. Mabayuan
3. Alicia Barlaan- Brygy. Sta Rita
4. Angeles Especia- Brgy. Sta. Rita
5. Gil Royo- Brgy. New Cabalan
6. Teresita Carabeo- Brgy. West Bajac-Bajac
7. Shirley Custodio- Brgy. West Bajac-Bajac
8. Carmelita Bumagat- Brgy. Sta Rita
9. Jerry Fernandez- West Bajac-Bajac
The recipients will have to return the amount within ten (10) months but without interest. This is ensure that more people will benefit from the livelihood assistance program of Mayor Gordon and First Lady Anne.
Each beneficiary has undergone a screening. Representatives from the Livelihood Cooperative and Development Office (LCDO) visited the candidates for the LCA to make sure that they really are not financially capable of starting up their own businesses.
Hog raising, sari-sari store, balut vending, cigarette vending, barbeque vending, rice vending, fish and vegetable vending, tocino making are just some of the many small businesses that the recipients will venture into which requires minimal amount of capital.
It can be recalled that the 2009 City Fiesta under the Chairmanship of First Lady Anne Marie, part of the funds raised was allotted to the Livelihood Program of Mayor Gordon.
