0 216

Quezon City Mayor Joy Belmonte has launched a new livelihood program to help unemployed residents have another source of income.

The “Pangkabuhayang QC” involves training jobless residents and giving them financial assistance to start their own livelihood.

During its launch, financial assistance was extended to 200 beneficiaries composed of hog raisers, sewers, vendors, farmers, parents of children with disabilities and jeepney drivers, among others who went through a screening process for qualification.

“Unfortunately, aside from the presence of the COVID-19 virus, unemployment is also one of our concerns for the people of Quezon City. Through this new Pangkabuhayang QC program, we can help our residents provide for their families and slowly improve their circumstances,” Belmonte said.

Interested individuals who want to join the program may contact the Small Business and Cooperatives Development and Promotions Office (SBCDPO) through their official Facebook Page (QCSBCDPO) or call 8988-4242 loc. 8734 or email sbcdpo@quezoncity.gov.ph.
