Iriga: Transforming Lives: Pagkaing Oragon sa Daungan Livelihood Project Flourishes at Mercedes Fish Port

For Jonna C. Pacinos, a 35-year-old vendor, her journey from modest origins to a thriving enterprise epitomizes the spirit of perseverance and determination.

Equipped with only a table, chair, and tarpaulin, she would diligently set up her corner at 2 in the morning daily, serving the early-morning needs of fishermen and locals who sought a comforting cup of coffee or a hearty breakfast at the fish port.

Ms. Pacinos’s small enterprise evolved into the backbone of her family’s well-being, providing not only financial stability but also supporting the education of her three children. On Tuesday, her journey came full circle as she proudly stood in front of her upgraded and vibrant stationary nego-kart from the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) Bicol at the Mercedes Fish Port in Mercedes, Camarines Norte.

“Maraming salamat po sa Nego-kart at sa mga gamit na ipinagkaloob po sa akin. May dagdag kagamitan para makagawa ng snack hindi lang kape at biscuit, lalo na po parating na ang summer siguradong dagsa po ang tao dito sa amin.

Napakaganda… salamat po at hindi na po ako mababasa kung sakaling umulan at nakakaenganyo po ng costumer ang negokart kiosk. (Thank you very much for the Nego-kart and for the items that were given to me. There are additional tools to make snacks, not just coffee and biscuits, especially since summer is approaching, and people are sure to flock here. It’s wonderful… Thank you, and I no longer have to worry about getting wet when it rains. The Nego-kart kiosk is also attracting more customers.), Pacinoโ€™s said.

Ms. Pacinos’s is among the ten (10) beneficiaries of the ๐—ฃ๐—ฎ๐—ด๐—ธ๐—ฎ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด ๐—ข๐—ฟ๐—ฎ๐—ด๐—ผ๐—ป ๐˜€๐—ฎ ๐——๐—ฎ๐˜‚๐—ป๐—ด๐—ฎ๐—ป Livelihood Project of the Department in Camarines Norte.
