Free trainings enhance Ilonggos' livelihood, job opportunities

Iloilo City (5 February) -- Livelihood and employment opportunities of Ilonggos were enhanced with the free basic entrepreneurship trainings launched by the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI)-Iloilo under its Comprehensive Livelihood and Employment Program (CLEEP).

A report from DTI 6 indicated that since the entrepreneurship trainings were conducted from January 27 to December 31, 2009, some 104 out of the 1,904 Ilonggos that have participated in the trainings have started their own businesses.

After eleven months of implementation of the training program, some 95 beneficiaries were assisted in availing financial assistance totaling P4.925 million.

Most of the beneficiaries were also unemployed and are one of the prime targets of the program when it was launched by President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo to boost livelihood and employment opportunities of the disadvantaged sectors, particularly during the global financial meltdown.

Aside from the unemployed, the trainings also attracted micro, small and medium entrepreneurs, the employed, overseas Filipino workers, housewives, would-be entrepreneurs, graduating students and farmers.

Other training programs offered by DTI under the CLEEP are skills development, management and other related trainings.

From January 27 to December 31, 2009, DTI-Iloilo also conducted 24 skills training benefiting 559 Ilonggos, 7 management trainings benefiting 121 and 11 other related trainings benefiting 343. (PIA) [top]
