P10K Livelihood Assistance For Overseas Filipino Workers In WV

Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) in Western Visayas who applied for the P10K livelihood Assistance Program of the National Reintegration Center for OFWs (NRCO) can now claim their checks at the provincial offices of the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) in their respective areas.

Bernard Sibay, Regional OFW Integration Officer of NCRO here in Region 6 said 45 applications for the P10K livelihood Assistance Program have been approved amounting to P450,000.00 and the checks are now downloaded to the DOLE provincial offices for release.

To date, 19 beneficiaries have already claimed their checks of which five received theirs from DOLE Undersecretary Ciriaco Lagunzad during his recent visit to Iloilo City.

Based on the NRCO 6 data, OFWs from the province of Negros Occidental whose applications were approved and have to claim their checks yet are: Ramile Combite, Ressia Bentic, Richard Bautista, Mark Ermeo, Ronabe Mancia, Maritess Atido, Cherryl Anatan, Rodelyn Jane Morales, Maritess Tipon, Susie Espina and Lolita Bacharo.

In the province of Iloilo, approved applicants who also have to claim their checks are: Connie Chavez, Wilma Cataloctocan, Mary Jane Jegonia, Daisy Matrata and Rey Anthony Mosquito.

The following OFWs are also advised to visit their respective DOLE provincial offices: Mary Ann de la Cruz, Imelda Andrade, Rosy Obidos and Nancy Ramirez of Capiz; Presy Maravilla, Josephine Olegario, Mary Jean Mombay; Roberto Amboyoc and Jeffrey Samillano, of Antique; and Meljane Cabanero of Guimaras.

For OFW beneficiaries who are now in Manila or in other areas, Sibay said, they have to execute a special power of attorney that authorizes their representatives to claim their checks on their behalf.

Under the P10K Livelihood Assistance Program, OFW returnees who are distressed, displaced, undocumented including their immediate families and dependents can avail of the assistance for them to start or enhance their existing livelihood undertakings and eventually become self sufficient.

Sibay said if beneficiaries manage their businesses well they could also avail additional development support from the P2 Billion Reintegration Program, a special loan program launched by President Benigno Aquino and implemented by the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration in partnership with Development Bank of the Philippines and the Land Bank of the Philippines.
