CONVERGING RESOURCES. Members of the P’yagadapuyonan Microenterprise Association standing proud before their first and main store in Barangay Poblacion, Maragusan, Compostela Valley. With a funding support from LGU Maragusan and with the proceeds from their previous Cash-For-Work projects, the Mansaka and Mandaya tribes in the town converged and established the microenterprise venture to augment their daily income. Members are beneficiaries of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) Modified Conditional Cash Transfer for Indigenous Peoples (MCCT-IP). Having set up their first branch in Barangay New Albay, the association is currently preparing the ground works for its second branch to be constructed in Barangay Bagong Silang. The store offers basic commodities to fellow MCCT-IP beneficiaries and other villagers. Members with individual sari-sari store also purchase stocks from the main store. Joining the group here is Pantawid Pamilya Provincial Link of Compostela Valley Province John Edward A. Magbanua [in yellow shirt]. (DSWD)
