TABUK CITY, Kalinga – Livelihood projects being implemented here through the Sustainable Livelihood Program (SLP) are being monitored to ensure its success and sustainability.

This is the statement released by Macfarlyne Bumosao, SLP Provincial Coordinator for the Social Welfare and Development (SWAD) Office- Kalinga in his appearance for the October 26 episode of ‘Matagoan Weekly’, the radio program of the city government aired over Radyo Pilipinas, saying monitoring is conducted quarterly with assistance from the local Social Welfare and Development Offices and the barangay officials.

In contrast to what others believe that SLP-funded projects are ineffective, Bumosao argued that there are still projects which are successful and have grown bigger.  Projects like these, he said, have embodied the objective of the program providing sustainable livelihood opportunity by means of an income-generating activity for the poorest of the poor individuals and members of organized groups.

Bumosao did recognize that some SLP-funded projects in the province collapsed because of misuse of funds and misunderstanding from the beneficiaries themselves, an incident which could have been avoided if program recipients have common understanding on how to grow the business well.

The SLP Provincial Coordinator also encouraged recipients to inform them ahead of time of any problems to nip problem in the bud, avoiding possibility of failure.

Prior to the giving of cash assistance, which is usually at P15,000.00 depending on the nature of the business, beneficiaries are given training on business proposal-making and capability building, and are required to open savings account, he informed.

The SLP is a capability-building program for poor, vulnerable and marginalized households and communities to improve their socio-economic conditions through accessing and acquiring necessary assets to engage in and maintain thriving livelihoods like handicrafts, sari-sari store, blacksmith, animals raising, to name a few.
