VP Sara Duterte calls on marginalized sectors to enroll at the 'Magnegosyo ‘ta Day' program

DIGOS CITY (PIA)-- Vice President Sara Duterte called on all women’s groups, LGBTQ+ sector and other marginalized groups that may not have access to traditional funding to apply at the Office of Vice President through the “Magnegosyo ‘ta Day” program.

VP Duterte, who was the guest of honor during the 23rd founding anniversary of Digos City, said her office has a grant from P500,000 to P1 million to support small and medium enterprises.

She said that along with the grant, the loan grantees will have the opportunity to be trained on how to run a business.

“We see that many people are into business but many people are also losing and wallow in debts. We will train you in business management to ensure the success of your business,” she said.

Vice President Duterte said that Digos City serves as an inspiration to the areas surrounding it by indulging much in business like the manufacture of rice cakes.

She also thanked Digos City and the whole province of Davao del Sur for supporting the candidacy of the 12 senators in the 2019 elections by voting 12-0.

Duterte said only four provinces gave a 12 to nothing vote for senators whom she campaigned thoroughly, and one of these provinces is Davao del Sur with Digos City.

“It was the election of Senators Francis Tolentino and Imee Marcos,” she said.

Duterte recalled that in 2022, one of the provinces that gave her runaway votes was the province of Davao del Sur.

She said she was never a resident of Digos City or anywhere in the province, but surely the people are close to her heart. (JSGD-Davao del Sur/Photos by OVP Media Team)
