Under the Livelihood or Kabuhayan component and in close coordination with PESO-Lapu-lapu City, livelihood beneficiaries will be showcasing products that are borne out of the livelihood assistance they received from the DOLE.

“Of course, the One-Stop-Shop services will be available for everyone as well. We have partnered with several agencies that will be rendering services to our clients for free. The RTWPB will also be accommodating queries on Kasambahay,” said the Regional Director.
