Marikina launches project for small entrepreneurs

MARIKINA CITY, January 30 (PIA) -- In Marikina, ambulant vendors who comply with city regulations are provided financial assistance as additional capital for their livelihood.

Today, the city government has launched the “Tulong Pangkabuhayan Program.” The program aims to help the small entrepreneurs of the city, such as registered ambulant vendors, in their source of living.

Marikina City Mayor Del De Guzman said that having a job gives a man his honor.

“Even if it’s as simple as being a vendor, as long as it’s legal, we should be proud of it,” De Guzman stressed.

Fifty (50) ambulant vendors who followed the city government's rules and policies each received certificates and cash amounting to P2,000.

Based on City Ordinance No. 04, Series of 2011, mobile vendors are allowed in the streets of Marikina. However, it is required that they register with the Public Market Office and follow the rules indicated in said ordinance.

Meanwhile, De Guzman clarified that only mobile vendors are allowed in the city and not sidewalk vendors.

The project is spearheaded by the Community Relations Office, the City Social Welfare and Development Office, Public Market Office, and the Office of Public Safety and Security.

For more information, please call the city’s Community Relations Office at 646-6516. (MARIKINA-PIO/RJB/JEG-PIA-NCR)
