TINGLAYAN, Kalinga, Jan. 20 (PIA) -- The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) has released P550,500 as livelihood asistance to 70 beneficiaries of the Sustainable Livelihood Program (SLP) in this town.

Through the survey, families wanting of financial assistance to improve their livelihood including available skills they have, were determined.

He said the 70 are the compose just 10 percent of the total identified 4P beneficiaries in the municipality. Another program is coming for the remaining 90%, this 2012, he said.

The 70 are members of five grass-root organizations with their respective loan amounts, namely Istay Manna SEA-K Association – P203,000; Blessing SEA-K – P116,000; Finurawan SKA – P110,000; Progress SEA-K – P80,000 and Fumatnangan SEA-K – P41,500.
