Cayetano, Tarlac LGUs join hands to help sari-sari store owners

SAN MANUEL, Tarlac (June 9, 2023) — The office of Senator Alan Peter “Compañero” Cayetano joined hands with local government officials of Tarlac Province to help more than a hundred Tarlaqueño sari-sari store owners with their daily needs and enable them to expand their small businesses through the Sari-saring Pag-Asa Program (SSP).

From June 8 to 9, 2023, Cayetano’s team gave assistance to 163 store owners from Districts 1 and 2 in Tarlac. These events were coordinated with San Manuel Municipal Mayor Donya Tesoro and Tarlac 2nd District Rep. Christian Yap, and in partnership with the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) through its Assistance to Individuals in Crisis Situations Program.

During the event’s orientation, Mayor Donya Tesoro took time to acknowledge Senators Alan Peter and Pia Cayetano’s help in ensuring the growth of the small businesses of Tarlaceños.

“Nakapagsimula na kayo, iyon ang pinaka importante. Nagdadagdag na lamang kami ng tulong, tulad nito na mula kina Senador Alan at Pia Cayetano na sumusuporta sa tulad ninyong may maliliit na negosyo. Good luck po sa inyo!” Tesoro told the beneficiaries.

Under the SSP, which is Cayetano’s flagship program for budding business owners, the store owners received assistance and a booklet explaining the program and giving tips on how they can grow their businesses.

In the two-day handover of assistance, several sari-sari store owners with medical conditions also received help through the medical assistance desks set up in the Capitol Building and San Manuel Cultural Center. They were provided assistance with their hospital bills, medicines, laboratory, operation, and diagnostic procedures.

These events were also coordinated with Tarlac Governor Susan Yap, Board Member Topey Delos Reyes, and Board Member Harmes Sembrano.
