Cagayan de Oro City (11 February) -- THE Iligan City District Office of the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) initiated a project to help the business of workers in the informal economy under the DOLE Integrated Livelihood Programs (DILP).

Remegio Cabaņog, District Labor Officer, DOLE Iligan City, said the goal of the program is to increase the income, improve socio-economic situation and enhance the capability of the beneficiaries.

Ultimately, Cabaņog said that the socio and economic well being of the beneficiaries shall have been significantly improved and the country's poverty level reduced.

A total of PhP 1,583,200.00 was released to the three group proponents of Iligan City.

For Lihok sa Kababainhan Alang sa Kalambuan (LIKASKA) of Barangay Buru-un, received an amount of PhP28,000.00 for their capability building and meat processing training.

Love Enthusiasm and Dedication for Success Association (LEADS) of Barangay San Miguel, on the other hand, received the amount of PhP350,000.00 for swine fattening, and provision for the Individual Project for Informal Economy, with 224 beneficiaries, amounting to PhP1,205,200.00 for trading or vending and services.

She said that their accredited co-partners are the Ayuda sa Tao Incorporated, a non-governmental organization, and the City Development and Livelihood Office (CDLO) of the city.

She emphasized that the co-partners will take charge of the implementation and monitoring of the project.

Meanwhile, DOLE Iligan also launched two similar emergency employment projects, the Integrated Services for Livelihood and Advancement of the Fisherfolks (ISLA) and Tulong Hanapbuhay sa Ating Disadvantaged Workers (TUPAD).

Cabaņog said that an amount of PhP4 million was granted to 800 fisherfolks at the city's coastal barangays.
