·1 min read

AROUND 10,800 beneficiaries have started to receive their P5,000 stimulus grant from the Cebu City Government.

The grant was provided so the beneficiaries can start or improve their businesses as an effort to boost the city's economy.

Gerard Joe Carillo, team leader of the Economic Stimulus Program, said Tuesday, May 31, 2022, that the beneficiaries came from the different sectors of the city at the sitio level.

Among the sectors chosen were transportation, farmers, women's organization, sari-sari store owner, and the formal and informal sectors.

"Wala ni siyay interest, this is a cash assistance. Use it as you will, as long as you can prove nga economically feasible ang inyong sari-sari store, transport sector, or unsa pa," said Carillo.

The stimulus program distribution is part of the city's P277 million worth of financial assistance that was disbursed beginning last May 13. (IRT)
