BONTOC, Mountain Province – The Department of Social Welfare and Development allotted P4,455,000 for livelihood projects of the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) beneficiaries in the province.

Jessie Chelim of the DSWD said checks amounting to P2,110,000 were already released to families of nine organized Self-Employment Assistance-Kaunlaran Associations/Groups (SKAs/SKGs).

Those that received the assistance are the Sinto Pantawid SKA; Mount Data Pantawid SKA; Bansa, Pangao, Pitpitan, and Tamog-o Pantawid SKAs of Monamon Norte, all in Bauko; Talubin and Tocucan Pantawid SKAs in this municipality; and Ommafang Pantawid SKG in Natonin.

Chelim said the groups that will be receiving their checks for their livelihood projects within the month are families of the Nursery Pantawid SKA in Bansa, Monamon Norte, Bauko; Namnama Pantawid SKG1 and SKG2 in Natonin; CAPA, Kinpadpay, Ambagiw, BAPA and BBS Pantawid SKAs, all in Besao; Achievers, Piggycorn, Cauayan, Langgam, and Camparadi Pantawid SKGs and Camia Pantawid SKA, all in Paracelis; Yumma-a and Belwang 2 Pantawid SKGs, both in Sadanga.

Chelim said there are still associations organized in Besao and Natonin whose papers are being processed at the DSWD regional office.

The SEA-K is a program of the DSWD which provides financial assistance for livelihood projects to help alleviate the living condition of the 4Ps beneficiaries and help them become self-sufficient.

It is a community-based credit assistance program, which will enable the 4Ps beneficiaries to establish and manage their own micro-enterprises through a skills training program that include provision of non-collateral and interest-free loan as seed capital. The beneficiaries have organized themselves first into associations or groups, a prerequisite before they can avail themselves of the financial assistance.

Under the SEA-K program, 4Ps families are allowed to get loans ranging from P5,000 to P10,000 for their livelihood projects payable in two years. This is to give them the opportunity to engage in livelihood activities that would sustain their income even after the culmination of the 4Ps.
