Fund for livelihood plans for women eyed
by PIO release

A member of the city council is eyeing the allocation of a seed fund for the livelihood projects of women’s groups in the city.

Councilor Lilia A. Fariñas proposed the appropriation of P3.2 million or P25,000 for every Kalipunan ng Liping Pilipina (Kalipi) Women’s Federation in the city’s 128 barangays to fund their start-up livelihood projects.

Fariñas said that the measure aimed to convene the Kalipi Women’s Federation in the city every third Friday of March to coincide with the National Women’s Month celebration to promote its establishment in barangays.

It also sought to empower barangays with existing Kalipi organizations by conducting a status check on their situations, access the problems and difficulties they face, and formulate solutions.

The proposed ordinance also sought to work out the conduct of skills assessment of all the Kalipi members to facilitate the most feasible match to fit the livelihood they are willing to undergo.

It also sought to provide the government and non-government agencies that will provide financial, entrepreneurial, educational, and managerial skills for their operation, such as but not limited to the Department of Trade and Industry, the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority, and Cooperative Development Authority.

Under the ordinance, the livelihood or entrepreneurship programs of the Kalipi will be reviewed to correct flaws or irregularities that will prompt changes to enhance and improve their operations.

The Kalipi groups that want to avail of the P25,00 seed fund shall submit through a letter of intent to the City Social Welfare and Development office. The fund shall be regarded as a loan from the local government and therefore subject to repayment or reimbursement with minimal interest as may be allowed by the Local Government Code and the Local Finance Committee.

The repayment may either be monthly, quarterly, biennially, or annually depending on the preference of the concerned group.
