Ginintuang Karagatan: Kwento ni Dalmacio ng Cajidiocan

Bawat tao ay pinapangarap na mabigyan ng maginhawang pamumuhay ang kanyang sariling pamilya. Para sa mga naninirahan sa malalayong probinsya, lakas ng loob at pagpupursigi ang tanging pinanghahawakan upang makamtan ang pangarap na ito.

Si Dalmacio Rey Rivera, 54 na taong gulang, at ang kanyang maybahay na si Ma. Evy Rivera, 51 taong gulang, ay mga residente ng Brgy. Taguilos, Cajidiocan, Romblon. Biniyayaan sila ng apat na anak na sina Eduardo, Francis, Daniel, at Dennis.

Bago mapasali sa Sustainable Livelihood Program ng Department of Social Welfare and Development noong taong 2017, si Dalmacio ay naghahanapbuhay bilang isang mangingisda.

Napili niya na magkaroon ng marine engine, isang makinang nagtutulak sa bangka o iba pang sasakyang pandagat, sapagkat mayroon na siyang bangkang pampalaot. Ang prokyetong ito ay napondohan sa ilalim ng Seed Capital Fund na nagkakahalag ng PHP 14,200.00.

Ang makinang ito ay inihandog sa kanya noong 2017 at agad namang ikinabit sa kanyang bangka. “Kahit gusto naming mangisda sa malayo dahil mas maraming huli doon, hindi kakayanin ng bangka ko. Masyadong maliit. Minsan ang ginagawa ko eh sinusundan ko yung mas malalaking bangka para makilagay ng mga huli,” salaysay ni Dalmacio.

Kung ang ibang mangingisda ay gumagamit ng langis na krudo, si Dalmacio ay bumili ng carburetor, isang tubo na ginagamit upang maghalo ang hangin at gatong sa makina. Sa paraang ito, nakatitipid siya ng PHP 700.00 bawat byahe kumpara sa paggamit ng krudo. Dito makikita na ang isa pang magandang puhunan bukod sa pera ay ang kakayahan na maging maparaan. Dahil isa nang ganap na bangkang de-motor ang bangkang papalaot ni Dalmacio, kumikita siya ng PHP 3000.00 hanggang PHP 5000.00 bawat byahe.

Ayon kay Evy, kumikita sila ng PHP 40,000.00 kada buwan dahil nakakapangisda na sila dalawang beses kada linggo. “Gusto namin ipaabot ang aming pasasalamat sa gobyerno dahil tinulungan nila kami. Isang beses lang sa buong linggo kami nakakapangisda noon pero ngayon na may makina na ang bangka namin eh naging dalawang beses na,” aniya Evy.

Mas lalong naging matatag ang kanyang paniniwala na ang lahat ng pagsisikap ng isang tao ay may magandang ibubunga. Sa kasalukuyan ay pinag-iipunan ng pamilya ang pagbili ng panibagong bangkang de-motor upang mas lumago ang kanilang kabuhayan. ###

Tindahan ng Malinsuno: A Model of Community Store in Balabac, Palawan

Convenience stores are often overshadowed by giant supermarkets in the city but for Sitio Malinsuno in Balabac, Palawan, sari-sari stores are important part of the community.

Being a thriving small town in the islet, Sitio Malinsuno is situated in the southernmost part of the province. All goods and services from the mainland are transported by water. Local residents literally rough their way to Barangay Buliluyan, (the last barangay at the southernmost tip of mainland Palawan) or to Barangay Rio Tuba (the most developed barangay in the municipality of Bataraza) to get their basic commodities.

Adding to the difficulty in transportation is that boats used to buy basic goods in the mainland are the same boats used for fishing as livelihood of the residents.

Aiding the Challenge through Small-Scale Enterprise

To aid in the inconvenient transportation of goods and services, the Department of Social Welfare and Development through the Sustainable Livelihood Program (SLP) brought an alternative livelihood to residents in 2013.

A seed capital fund was released to 30 members of the Malinsuno Island SEA-K Association. After two years, members were able to pay the rollback amount to DSWD and were able to save Php 5,000.00 each. Then, majority of the members decided to pull out their savings to put up a community store in the village.

The Birth of Tindahan ng Malinsuno

Tindahan ng Malinsuno SEA-K Association began its operation in 2015 with two objectives: to sustain the benefits gained from the seed capital fund and to make basic commodities readily available and affordable in their community.

Aside from raising the initial capital for this project, the Malinsuno Island SEA-K Association members strengthened their capability as an organization to manage a community enterprise.

Through the assistance of SLP and other agencies, innovative policies were formulated through participatory processes. Aside from establishing the community’s credibility as an association, this also served as an avenue for the government to provide welfare assistance to the remote areas.

The continuous partnership between the partner stakeholders and the association led to the increase in their assets. After a year of operation, the community store was able to gain profit enough for each member to have a fair share of Php 8,000.00 and also to earn enough capital for the next cycle of its operation.

By the end of 2017, each member’s share has rocketed to an increase from a minimum of Php 10,000.00 up to a maximum of Php 14,000.00. At present, the community store is still rolling out for another cycle and its assets continues to increase.

Empowering Women, Empowering Community

Majority of members of the Malinsuno Island SEA-K Association is women. The implementation of SLP generated employment to these women. The birth of the community store organized and empowered the women as they now earn and provide income for their families. Aside from managing their household, they became key players in this microenterprise. Every member has his/her assigned schedule to man the store every day to sustain its operations.

This collective effort has brought a drastic change in the purchasing power and even the mode of purchase of residents. From crossing the sea to buy their day-to-day commodities for a relatively higher price, they are now able to acquire these on cheaper prices. In effect to the community, this has also neutralized the product pricing in the islet as other enterprises also lowered their pricing.

The birth of a convenience store that provided products at lower prices and supplied the needs of the local residents without them crossing the sea to go to mainland is a clear manifestation of the impact of small-scale enterprise to the community. ###

A Glimpse of Palawan: The Impact of Community-Based Ecotourism

While tourists might have known or heard about the majestic island of Palawan, more and more people would want to come and visit the Philippines’ Last Ecological Frontier.

Simply describing Palawan as beautiful does not give justice to it. the It has been awarded the ‘World’s Best Island’ in 2017 by a well-known international travel magazine. With its abundant biodiversity, rich culture, breathtaking spots, hospitable people, it is undeniably true that Palawan is a paradise, a must-go for every tourist.

Zooming in lies Puerto Princesa, a city that has gone through a long journey from an environmentally-degraded city into one of the major ecotourism sites around the world. Add the fact that the city houses the famous Puerto Princesa Underground River, provisionally chosen as one of the New7Wonders of Nature in 2011.

Part of the government’s objectives is to maintain a sustainable tourism that will serve as a livelihood for its people and promote economic development. To obtain this, the local government of Puerto Princesa City initiated the community-based ecotourism in Brgy. Buenavista.

Community-based ecotourism is a form of ecotourism that emphasizes the development of local communities and allows local residents to have substantial control over and involvement in its development and management, and also a major proportion of the benefits within the community.

This form of ecotourism allows the participants of the cooperative to share the environment and their way of life with visitors. While increasing local income and building local economies, community-based tourism allows communities to participate in the modern global economy while cultivating a sustainable source of income and maintaining their way of life.

Participants are now empowered through local leadership by creating plans and encouraging clear and transparent decision-making. Community members actively make decisions on strategies and acceptable levels of tourism based upon the community’s culture, heritage, and vision. Strategies also equip local communities with the tools and knowledge necessary for decision-making, and to build effective structures to enable the community to influence, manage, and benefit from ecotourism development and practice.

Puerto Princesa, the Eco-Tourism Center of the Philippines, received a remarkable increase in the number of tourists in the past few years bringing with them trade and businesses in the city. The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), in partnership with Local Government Unit, began the community-based ecotourism as part of supporting the advocacy of the municipality. They designed the Sustainable Livelihood Program (SLP) to alleviate poverty through livelihood projects and employment facilitation. Community-based ecotourism in Palawan proved the power of sustainable livelihood and biodiversity conservation to alleviate rural poverty.

Farming in the Sea: The Cagayancillo Seaweed Farming

The town of Cagayancillo, located between the islands of Palawan and Negros in the Sulu sea, is endowed with beautiful beaches and rich marine resources. It is a 6th class municipality which is home to 6,285 people.

Cagayanins are known to have a culture of eating sea turtles or pawikan. When it was declared as an endemic species, they had to give up this culture and consume other allowable resources that can be caught in the sea.

Living in a remote island was never easy for Cagayanins especially that they are dependent on the sea for their livelihood. The unpredictable changes on weather, including monsoons and typhoons, limit the stability on their means of income.

Given this situation, the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), together with the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) beneficiaries, grabbed the opportunity to provide a viable alternative source of income for the people of Cagayancillo.

Since they rely on fishing and seaweed production, the beneficiaries organized an association called Cagayancillo Seaweeds Farmers Association that was created in February 2016 with Ms. Lory Aya-ay as its president. The association as a micro-enterprise will focus on seaweed reproduction. The marketability of seaweeds makes it a more feasible project for the community.

357 members of the association were able to raise materials needed for the project which amounts to PHP 4,500.00. These members had already been trained by the KALAHI CIDSS-NCDDP volunteer in partnership with the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR). This had marked their first roll out for the project in February 2016. The Project Development Officer assisted the association to come up with a project proposal for additional funding for the plantation.

DSWD was able to fund the project with a total amount of PHP 808,962.00 where members currently generate an average annual income for the enterprise amounting to PHP 22,000.00 which had made an impact to the community.

The favorable coastal condition of the community made the production of seaweed propagates sustainability. Their hardwork also yielded frequent harvest and growing production in a short span of time.

Aside from the favorable economic results of the seaweed production, members also became more environmentally aware, thus maintaining their marine area free from illegal fishing activities. They become more responsible and vigilant in marine life protection and conservation, knowing that destruction of marine area will affect their primary livelihood.

Another impact of the project is that other fisher folks had refrained from engaging on illegal fishing activities as they saw the potential of seaweed farming as an alternative livelihood. The positive development in terms of economic stability, environmental awareness, and improved livelihood of the beneficiaries and the community are clear implications that the objectives of DSWD were met.

Members of the association are exerting collective efforts towards a goal of making a sustainable livelihood. The project that aimed to provide an extra economic power had a positive domino effect – a developed community resulting to well-groomed citizens living in a healthy environment.

Balancing a Flourishing Economy and the People

Home to indigenous tribe Pala’wan, the municipality of Brooke’s Point is one of the emerging municipalities in the south. With its rapid development, the local government preserves the environment through a mining moratorium. The local citizens are one of the staunch advocates of environmental protection.

The municipality’s economy is primarily based on agriculture, particularly rice and coconut production. For the past two years, the agriculture industry continues to grow. This eventually resulted to the creation of large number of job opportunities related to agriculture.

Among the projects of Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) through the Sustainable Livelihood Program (SLP) in the province, this town invests into agro-industry with their vast and developed agricultural lands. Due to the fast-paced development of this town, there are factors such as income, skills, employment, and social insurance which are not equally proportionate to their booming economy.

Addressing the needs

To address this concern, a partnership between different government agencies – DSWD-SLP, MLGU and a private company called WILSERV had inked an agreement to execute a project that will be a great help to the people of Brooke’s Point: a micro-enterprise that focuses on manpower services. The enterprise hopes to capacitate the participants through the assistance of partners and service providers.

Partner Agency

WILSERV (Worldwide Service Provider Multi-Purpose Cooperative), operates and advocates the values of self-help, self-responsibility, equality, equity and solidarity as their core values. It extends its services to big companies and small property owners all over the Philippines since December 8, 2010.

With its mission to its clients, the MLGU and DSWD-SLP see WILSERV as a potential partner for this project. Also, WILSERV is the sole manpower agency of Cardinal Agri-Products Inc. (CAPI), an agribusiness enterprise in the Philippines that aims to uplift the agricultural communities in the country.

With the SLP Guidelines on Employment Facilitation Track, MAT-Brooke’s Point set a dialogue with WILSERV to discuss the terms and proposal of both parties. The output from the said meeting was presented during the Municipal Inter-Agency Committee meeting for critiquing and deliberation of its members. This yielded into a positive result in which all parties involved agreed to enter into an agreement with the company. A tripartite agreement that defines and formalizes the responsibilities of the parties involved was drafted in.

Fulfilling the tasks

Barangay Captains, Barangay Health Workers, Child Development Workers, Parent and IP Leaders in the municipality were called to disclose the results of the efforts of partner agencies to clinch an agreement with WILSERV. The project received positive response among different sectors and even the Philippine Marine Corps in Brooke’s Point declared their pledge of support to the said initiative.

The screening and referrals of applicants will be facilitated by DSWD-SLP and WILSERV. Those who will qualify the screening will undergo various skills training such as nuts deshelling, nuts pairing and nuts harvesting. These skills are essential in the operation of CAPI farm in Brooke’s Point.

Aside from the skills training, a Pre-Employment Assistance Fund (PEAF) will be given to those who will complete the training. This will be a great help for the applicants to be able to comply the necessary documents that they will need for their pre-employment requirements.

A total of 393 trainees or program participants are identified to be provided with guaranteed employment upon the completion of the implementation.

Turning the weakness into strengths

The factors that need to be strengthened in the municipality of Brooke’s Point are now being realized. The beneficiaries already enjoy the benefits of employment, income, and insurance.

Skills training

DSWD-SLP will shoulder the funding for capacity building activities while the technical skills training will be provided by WILSERV. Each aspiring qualified applicant needs to complete the following for each skills training:

80 hours           –             Nuts Pairing

56 hours           –             Nuts Deshelling

160 hours        –             Nuts Harvesting

Upon completion of trainings, the applicants are subject for assessment.

Employment

307 of 393 participants targeted for this program are already employed for regular positions. Just like other company rules and regulations, their employment is still subject for termination if found violating policies provided by the company. Upon retirement, the employee can recommend the vacant position to the person of their choice.

Income

As regular employees, they will receive a daily salary of PHP 290.00/day for those who will be assigned in the production area while those who will be working overtime and night-shift will receive PHP 355.00/day. Unlike the normal employer-employee status, those who were hired under this program are treated as co-owner of the cooperative. An amount of PHP 250.00 will be deducted from their monthly salary and will be placed on their capital share until they complete the PHP 5,000.00 of their individual shares. This will enable them to receive dividends from the cooperative, from 20% up to 30% of the total shared capital. Upon their resignation they will receive their shared capital from the cooperative as their back pay.

Social Insurance

At this modern times, one has to secure insurance to protect the individual in case an emergency happens. The beneficiaries under this program will receive benefits such as Social Security System (SSS), PAG-IBIG, PhilHealth, hospitalization insurance, incentive leaves, emergency loan, and a life plan. With regards to their hospitalization insurance, WILSERV gives a self-insurance of up to PHP 2,500.00 per year for outpatient consultations including medicines and an amount of up to PHP 20,000.00 per year. For inpatient, their insurance can amount up to PHP 100,000.00 under the company Insular Life.

Shares and dividends

Upon employment, program participants automatically become a member of WILSERV Multi-Purpose Cooperative. Members are required a maximum capital share of PHP 5,000.00 to be deducted from their salaries within 2 years. Members are also entitled to receive dividends equivalent to 20 up to 30% of the total shared capital.

The intervention of LGUs and DSWD-SLP had provided a great impact among the people under this project, particularly members from the Indigenous People.

Aborlan pushing for Organic Farming

Philippines is an agricultural country – with its abundant nature and good climate, a lot of local residents, especially on rural places, would engage in farming.

Zooming in lies the nature-loving province called Palawan. Located in the province is the municipality of Aborlan which is known as one of the biggest producers of agricultural products in southern Palawan.

Aborlan possesses a vast range of flat lands and terrains ideal for farming. Thus, it is no wonder that one of the major economic activities of the municipality is farming. It is practical that residents are taking advantage of their municipality’s features to have a livelihood; this was proven by the Participatory Livelihood Issue Analysis (PLIA) showing that there is a large number of farmers in Brgy. Barake engaged in vegetable production. This resulted to a formation of interested individuals into groups. A partnership engagement was established between Municipal Agriculture Office and Department of Social Welfare and Development – Sustainable Livelihood Program, in line with the thrust and priorities of Department of Agriculture to promote organic farming in Palawan and also to ensure the sustainability of the project.

This partnership aims to conduct skills training on organic vegetable farming with vermicomposting to provide skills and knowledge for the farmers on making organic pesticides and fertilizers using vermin-composting technology. This project possesses a wide range of economic and social benefits such as increasing the level of investment, aiding malnourishment in the community, and augmenting to the daily income of program participants to name a few.

The project started on January 25-26, 2016 through the collaborative effort of the Local Government Unit (LGU), BLGU, Western Philippines University (WPU), Municipal Social Welfare and Development Office (MSWDO) and Convergence team of Aborlan. In two years of operation, May Gamala, a beneficiary of the program, had her own sari-sari store wherein the capital to build this store was earned from her profit in selling organic vegetables and vermicompost. Given the high value of organically grown vegetables and vermicompost, she roughly earns a minimum of PHP 8,000.00 a week. Nowadays, the awareness on health benefits of organic products continues to spread through social media.

Partnership engagement followed by continuous monitoring and coaching of the participants was sought to deliver quality service and ensure the sustainability of the project.

Program participants, on the other hand, share insights in the operation. The increasing income of the program participants would stimulate economic growth in the community, promote healthier lifestyle, and sustain healthy environment.

Soaring High Through Hog Raising

Filipinos are always practical; we do everything just to financially provide for our families in ways we know. We look around, and are always on the go to find livelihood projects that are beneficial and lucrative when fearlessly ventured.

The hog raising industry has been touted to be just such. Many Palaweños in the rural areas of Palawan still find it profitable notwithstanding the extreme hard work and unremitting patience the growers need to possess while raising the piglets. After all, the hog raising industry will generate income. Many residents in Brgy. San Juan in Aborlan are also into the hog-raising industry, as it provides them livelihood. It enables them to buy things for their children and pay the rent. While they are satisfied with the money the pigs sold put on their table, there’s something they lack: an association.

It was observed during the Sustainable Livelihood Program preliminaries in the barangay that all its residents possess the characteristics needed for the establishment of an association: camaraderie, unity, and willingness to learn. So formation of hog raising association they did. Through the help of the Community Core Group (CCG), a hog raising group with 41 households and leaders was formed within the four sitios of Brgy. San Juan. Aside from the formation of their association, hog raisers also went through trainings that opened their eyes to the challenges besetting the business, and the ways on how to overcome them to meet their targets.

Through the Local Government Units (LGUs) and National Government Agencies (NGAs), the trainings were made possible and series of lectures on hog-raising industry were presented to the participants.  The Western Philippines University (WPU) and Department of Agriculture (DA) served as instruments in the conduct of this endeavor. After the trainings, the participants were made to buy and raise two-month old piglets so after 3-4 months or 120 calendar days, the pigs weighing 85 kilos in average pegging at PHP 100.00 per kilo can then be sold in the market. After selling, they will have to buy another of the same age, so the cycle would repeat again.

The Department of Social Welfare and Development – Sustainable Livelihood Program in partnership with LGUs, through the Municipal Social Welfare and Development Office (MSWDO) along with BLGU, will ensure the success of the participants’ endeavor in hog raising using the knowledge they gained from the training and knowledge sharing.

The Municipal Agriculture Office will also continuously render technical assistance to the participants who are taking the risks of raising the hogs, to ensure their survival and productivity; the process is not easy because it is painstaking and taxing, given the food which the hog raisers need to give the pigs on top of its other needs before they are sold in the market.

Also with the help of different agencies, a communal hog raising project will also be launched this year in Brgy. San Juan, where a community piggery will already be made available to the participants. Once finalized and implemented, it will boost the income of the residents that will pique the economic growth in the community, or barangay for that matter, as it is seen to beef up the expenditures for goods and services, thus paving the way for economic and forward linkages for the betterment of the barangay.

The community piggery project will likewise boost the expansion of meat supply in the municipality of Aborlan, which will ensure food security to secure an escape from hunger in the community, in support of the national government’s food sufficiency goal. As such, the beneficiaries of the project shall be first and foremost the needy, but can however live up to the agreements and promises they make preceding the occupation of the community piggery. The project will give them the opportunity to possess a micro-enterprise of their own at the lowest possible cost. This will also provide them a venue to improve their living condition from the profits they will gain once hogs are sold which will, in a way, lift them from the stranglehold of penury.

There doesn’t seem to be a bigger impediment in the implementation of the project than the ones the implementers can handle; the minor ones are manageable. It accordingly will promote better welfare to the residents because it stimulates economic development in the municipality.

An Empowered Woman’s Secret to a Successful Piggery

The part of women and its contributions to culture should never be underestimated in this predominantly male-controlled culture, like in the Philippines. Women-led organizations in the government, non-government organization, and private sector have molded and influenced national issues pertaining to governance and other economic-related happenings. More women and women organizations are now playing a proactive role towards national development. One good example is one Sustainable Livelihood Program Association based in Brgy. La Curva, San Jose, Occidental Mindoro. The SLPA is an all-women group composed of hog raisers and has been contributing economically to their barangay. This is the story of Teresita “Nanay Tere” Salde who chose to be an empowered woman.

Hog raising in the Philippines has been a profitable business for Filipinos through the decades. Its fame is obviously seen among backyards of rural families. An average Filipino usually raises a small number of pigs to supplement their daily needs. While both parents are busy with their work, children may help in raising a few piglets until they reach their merchantable age. No wonder, more hogs are produced in backyards compared to commercial swine raisers. In Barangay La Curva, it was acknowledged during the conduct of Participatory Livelihood Issue Analysis that there are Pantawid Partner Beneficiaries engaged in backyard hog raising. Usually, traders in the municipality especially public market pork dealers roam within the barangay to buy hogs.

Nanay Tere having no background in agronomy and getting involved onto it is no longer new. She thought that there are lot of enthusiasts all over the world into farming acquiring direct knowledge and involvement thru experiments, pushed by their own advocacy. Through time, she was able to apply such belief in swine raising.

Meant to be a farmer and a lot more, coming across a program of Department of Social Welfare and Development about livelihood and training is almost a surprise to her. Nanay Tere’s interest on pig farming started way back 2008. However, this faded because no one could lead her to an agency that provides training. In 2016, the craving hit again but this time it was purely unintentional.

Going back to the program, she was able to get a short training on livestock raising. Acquiring the basics on pig production and being a member in an organization put her desire in place. It was a perfect timing. Since then, Nanay Tere’s desire to pursue pig raising never left her. In 2016, she started her small farm in La Curva with 3 weaners for fattening from the Sustainable Livelihood Program of DSWD. She applied the feeding technique for swine she learnt at the training. Growth was good but transportation and feed cost pulled the profit. She lost enthusiasm that she almost wanted to quit.

At the moment, revenue is to be realized and even costs are piling up. Nanay Tere did not lose hope. She trusted that God is gracious to the one who preserve His land and the ecosystem. Despite the trials she bumped into due to barriers such as the existing market and operational expenses, she still pursued her business endeavor. As a whole, it is financially and emotionally draining for her.

The Basic Training on Swine Raising was a great help on her decision to put up a farm. “SLP is an enabler”, she added. Being a mother of seven, daily subsistence is really a struggle. But because of having hogs in her backyard, she was able to support their daily expenses and use some of the profit during emergency. She shared that there was a time when her youngest son was diagnosed with dengue and at the same day, she was bitten by a cat wherein free vaccine was not available. The pigs were her lifeline. All the medical expenses came from her small swine business.

“Moved by morals, I’m gaining while losing but at the end of the race, I am winning!” ends Nanay Tere.
