Cash is king amid the pandemic.

Caloocan City Congressman Edgar Erice had to address one of the questions always thrown at him whenever he makes the rounds and visits small businesses in barangays.

“Bakit daw ako nagbibigay ng salaping dagdag puhunan sa mga maliliit na tindahan? Simple lang po ang katugunan, madalas sila ang nauubusan ng puhunan dahil sa gitna ng kagipitan sila ang ang nauutangan ng kanilang mga kapitbahay na wala na halos makain ngayong pandemya,” the politiko said.

For him, it’s a simple capital boost.

“Makakautang ba kayo sa 7/11, Save More at Puregold?,” he added.
