Sustainable Livelihood

Sustainable Livelihood Story From poverty to opportunity Mark Erik King Guanzon While others dream of having a six foot three gleaming red Ferrari, the SLP Federation’s dream is to have a tricycle to transport goods to barangays where trucks are unable to go. The federation also plans to construct small stores on upper barangays to sell the products from the grocery. KALAHISerye 2016|| 67 I n unity there is strength – a quotation which has been proven many times, from the liberation of a country to the fall of an empire. In the rural areas of the Cordillera lies the province of Apayao, a province rich in culture and natural resources but is burdened with one of the deadliest battles of this era – POVERTY. Visiting the province, one will notice the smiles and ideals of individuals; but behind the smiles, they are troubled with problems on survival. While some are comfortably resting in their sofas, drinking a very expensive coffee, bragging a very expensive watch; there are people gambling their lives just to eat three times a day, who rests on soil, and their only way of knowing time is by the movement of the sun. Two years ago a group of poor individuals formed a federation known as Sustainable Livelihood Program Federation (SLP Federation). The Federation aims to reduce the number of individuals caught in the poverty line by creating sustainable livelihood using their group fund; this group fund came from the P500.00 capital share, P20.00 membership fee and P20.00 annual due. The federation also has the support of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD). This year, they’ve launched their first project – a P170,000.00 worth mini grocery located near the municipal capitol of Pudtol. It is expected to have a good income for its strategic location and the marketing plans of the members. The grocery sells frozen foods, grocery products, agricultural supplies and SLP products.

After two years members will be granted their patronage refund and if everything goes well they plan to invest their funds to bakery and catering. While others dream of having a six foot three gleaming red Ferrari, the SLP Federation’s dream is to have a tricycle to transport goods to barangays where trucks are unable to go. The federation also plans to construct small stores on upper barangays to sell the products from the grocery. DSWD-CAR swore to provide guidance and technical assistance when requested by the federation. With all the livelihood trainings the SLP is providing, the department encourages poor individuals to have the initiative to participate, to move and act, to escape and get rid of poverty. TUNAY NA MALASAKIT Members of the Federation were beneficiaries of the SEA-K Seed Capital Fund a program by the DSWD. The fund they gathered from the program was used in the creation of the grocery thus giving them a more sustainable source of income. KALAHISerye 2016|| 68
