WOMEN POWER. CSCCI celebrates the National Women’s Month by rebuilding the lives of women who owned small businesses through the donation of simple livelihood assistance to womenpreneurs adversely affected by the series of typhoons and the Covid-19 pandemic. CSCCI’s Women In Business gives “Tingraw nin Paglaom” (a speck of hope) to the province’s womenpreneurs.
This program was followed by a series of activities initiated by the CSCCI’s Women in Business Committee for the promotion and development of women-owned Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) within the province of Camarines Sur.
Prior to the airing of the first episode of the Digitalk, the Women in Business committee led by Cynthia P. Arce was busy carrying out livelihood assistance programs to marginalized women and their families who are still recovering from the adverse effects of the numerous calamities of 2020.
The two recipients from Minalabac were Lizardo’s Vegetable Store and Ortega Barbecue, while the recipient of Pasacao was Baloloy’s Sari-Sari Store, all of whom received assistance to reopen their micro businesses to generate a sustainable income.
The Women in Business Digitalk is the result of the strong private and public partnership built among the CSCCI, Camarines Sur provincial government and the Department of Science and Technology.
