Mayor Tekwa turns over Nego Karts thru the DOLE-assisted Project

Some 26 members of the Catbalogan Ambulant Vendors Association (CAVA) recently received their Nego Kart or Negosyo-sa-Kariton, a project of the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE).

Said Nego Karts were turned-over last December 27, 2012 at the City Plaza by no less than Catbalogan City Mayor, Coefredo “Tekwa” Uy along with DOLE Samar Field Office Representative and assisted by City Cooperative Officer Mr. Vivencio Eslopor II and former City Administrator and President of Catbalogan City Hotel and Restaurant Owners Association Ms. Herminia “Eday” Cabral.

Apart from the actual push cart received by the vendors, they will also be receiving P3,000.00 worth of goods through the City Cooperative Office to serve as their additional capital to their various small businesses.

The Negosyo sa Kariton (Nego-Kart) project is one of the DOLE’s Priority Projects, which is intended to provide decent livelihood mainly for the benefit of marginal workers in the country’s informal sector, specifically the ambulant workers in major cities of the country. Each participating local government units shares a percentage as a counterpart to the over-all livelihood project.
