DOLE gives 11 pedicabs to drivers in Iloilo City
ILOILO CITY — The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) turned over a total of 11 pedicabs to drivers at Barangay Sambag, Jaro, Iloilo City on Wednesday, July 27.
The Iloilo City government, together with the Public Employment Service Office, led the distribution of the pedicabs to the beneficiaries of the DOLE Livelihood Program.
The drivers, who received the new pedicabs, have been renting pedicabs to earn a living.
PESO Iloilo City manager Gab Umadhay said the beneficiaries were strategically chosen based on three qualifications.
“First, they should be indigents. Second, they are capable of using the items given, and lastly, they should be able to sustain the program,” he said.
Umadhay said this is only one of the many programs of PESO to help the poor in Iloilo City.
