Government to help street and sidewalk vendors' businesses affected by pandemic

The government is willing to help the street and sidewalk vendors open or start their businesses again after the devastating impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, according to the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD).

DSWD Spokesperson Irene Dumlao said, with their Sustainable Livelihood Program (SLP), they will be able to aid the poor, vulnerable and marginalized people of the country.

“Ang DSWD katulong ng lokal na pamahalaan ay nakahandang tumulong sa mga mahihirap at bulnerableng sektor ng ating lipunan, kasama na po nga diyan ang ating mga street or sidewalk vendors,” Dumlao said in a radio interview.

SLP is a capacity-building program that aims to help all its beneficiaries get all the assets that they need so they could start their own businesses and  eventually improve their socio-economic well-being.

Last 2020, the DSWD was able to provide livelihood support to more than 8,000 families worth P1.4 billion.
