5 Bohol fisherfolk organizations and farmers will get P1.8 million in assistance.

The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) will shortly provide PHP1.83 million in livelihood support to five groups of farmers and fishermen in Bohol, according to the senior regional labor official on Friday.

DOLE-7 regional director Salome Siaton stated in a statement that 196 members of these organizations would soon embark on various livelihood ventures that will be supported by the national government via the Labor agency.

Five workers’ organizations in Loon, a second-class municipality in Bohol, are among the beneficiaries of DOLE Integrated Livelihood and Emergency Employment Program (DILEEP) assistance, she added.

Canigaan Farmers and Fisherfolk Organization (CAFFO), Pederasyon sa mga Gagmay’ng Mananagat ug Mag-uuma sa Loon (PEGAMMA), Cuasi Fishermen Association, Talisay Fishermen’s Association, and Cansubayon Samahang Nayon Multi-Purpose Cooperative were among the organizations recognized by Siaton.

CAFFO members have received a total of PHP314,051 in seed money for their bangus manufacturing, which will assist them in becoming product marketers.

PEGAMMA awarded a total of PHP296,756 to a group of Loon farmers and fishermen for their โ€œbahalinaโ€ production and marketing business initiative.

Their drinks are made from coconut or nipa palm sap that has been fermented and sold on the market as locally manufactured beverages.

A livelihood aid package of PHP401,280 was also given to the fishermen’s organization in Cuasi, while those in Talisay got PHP413,158 to support their all-season fishing operations.

Cansubayon Samahang Nayon Multi-Purpose Cooperative received PHP410,500 to help them fund their egg-producing venture.

โ€œBusiness owners or beneficiaries will become self-reliant and economically independent if these companies are fostered and maintained viable. I really hope that their individual efforts will be fruitful,โ€ Siaton added, asking them to assist the government in combating poverty.

The livelihood support given to the associations will be utilized to purchase raw materials, jigs, and equipment required to launch their individual livelihood initiatives, according to Angeli Salgados, DOLE-Bohol head.

According to Salgados, each business venture is intended to supplement the income of the recipients, whose existing sources of income have been severely impacted by the coronavirus illness pandemic of 2019.

All beneficiaries of the association will follow a 70-30 split.

โ€œThis implies that 70% of the revenue generated by their company will go to the members, while 30% would go to the organization to help guarantee its continuation and sustainability,โ€ Salgados said.
