DOLE accepts applications for OFW livelihood assistance
The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) Nueva Vizcaya field office was filled last Friday (March 31) with Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW) returnees who already want to stay here for good and wanted to put up a business of their own but do not have enough capital.
DOLE have two programs for OFW which are Livelihood Development Assistance Program (LDAP) for undocumented OFWs and Balik Pinay, Balik Hanap Buhay for maltreated OFW.
Lolita Arellano, 51 years old of Dupax del Norte and Fredelina Catahina, 64 years old of Curifang, Solano worked abroad for eight and four years, respectively, are only some of the OFW returnees who queued and hoping that they will also be granted with the assistance.
According to Labor and Employment Officer Sheilanie A. Mamuric, all applicants must submit their corresponding documents and will undergo interview. “All applicants will be screened and we will see if they will be qualified. One is if they are undocumented OFW and the other is if they were victims of maltreatment by their employer,” Mamuric explained.
OFW returnees who will be granted with the livelihood assistance will receive P10, 000.00 worth of goods from the agency according to the business they want to put up.
“Those who will not be qualified with these programs can still have the assistance from DOLE. We will assist them with our other program which is the Entrepreneurial Development Training (EDT). In this program, they will be trained to become a good entrepreneurs,” Mamuric added. #mccd
