Bong Go provides support to micro-entrepreneurs in Canlaon City, Negros Oriental

“Mahirap talaga ang panahon ngayon. Naapektuhan po ang inyong negosyo pero huwag kayong mag-aalala dahil andito lang ang gobyerno upang tumulong sa inyo,” Go said to the micro-entrepreneurs in a video message.

Sen. Bong Go sent his team to provide assistance to hundreds of small business owners in Canlaon City, Negros Oriental on Monday, 5 September. 

Go vowed that he will continue to support government programs and measures to boost livelihood opportunities in the country.

“Mahirap talaga ang panahon ngayon. Naapektuhan po ang inyong negosyo pero huwag kayong mag-aalala dahil andito lang ang gobyerno upang tumulong sa inyo,” Go said. 

“Asahan niyo po bilang inyong kasangga sa Senado, susuportahan ko at gagawin ko ang aking makakaya upang mabigyan ang bawat Pilipino ng trabaho. Dahil ito po ang isa sa mga ipinangako ni dating pangulong Rodrigo Duterte na mabigyan kayo ng komportableng buhay,” he reassured. 

Go, as Chair of the Senate Committee on Health and Demography, then encouraged those unvaccinated yet qualified beneficiaries to get their complete shots against COVID-19 as vaccines play a vital role in the country’s economic recovery.

Held at the city’s gymnasium, the senator’s team gave away masks, snacks, and shirts to 400 micro-entrepreneurs. Meanwhile, they also provided shoes, computer tablets, bicycles, and balls for basketball and volleyball to select individuals. 

A team from the DSWD likewise extended livelihood assistance grants to each business owner while the Department of Trade and Industry gave livelihood support to qualified entrepreneurs. 

The Technical Education and Skills Development Authority team also granted scholarships to potential individuals based on the team’s evaluation.
