DOLE shares success story in Central Luzon

Dec 29, 2017 @ 10:02

The success story of a poor mother in Bataan proves that one of the agency’s programs truly works.

In 2012, Juliet Abad from the town of Mariveles received a Negokart from the DOLE. It’s a simple gift she didn’t know then would give her sustainable livelihood.

Abad was a fiberglass factory worker when she resigned to pursue a street food business with her husband.

In less than a year, their earnings from Negokart helped them send their children to school. They bought a popcorn cart and opened a small food kiosk in the annual trade fair inside the Freeport Area of Bataan.

Now they operate a bigger kiosk with an expanded menu.

“Nagpapasalamat po kami sa DOLE dahil doon sa NegoKart po kami nagsimula at unti-unti naming napalago at nakatamasa sa pag asenso. Sana, marami pang matulungan ang DOLE sa mga taong gustong tulungan ang kanilang mga sarili,” Abad said.

DOLE’s regional and field offices can be reached through contact numbers listed on its official web The public may also visit the nearest Public Employment Service Offices in different parts of the region.
