Maryjoe Malota, one of the recipients of the program, decided to return to the Philippines after working in Saudi Arabia for more than 4 years due to an unfavorable working experience. She received a total of P40,000 from LPOR and AKSYON funds.

“Sobrang thankful po, sobrang salamat dahil po sa kanila, nakapagsimula po ako muli dito,” said Malota, extending her gratitude to the DMW and the Provincial Governent for working together to give them the help they needed. According to her, she will be using the amount she received for her eatery and the piggery she’s starting up.

The Provincial Government is consistently working with various national government agencies to provide the people of Camarines Sur with the programs, projects and assistance that they need.
