DTI R2, OWWA RWO2, LBP, Team Up in Capacitating OFWs

DTI

The Department of Trade and Industry Region 2 in partnership with Overseas Workers Welfare Administration Regional Welfare Office 02 (OWWA RWO2) and LandBank of the Philippines conducted a webinar entitled, “Enhanced Entrepreneurial Development Training” (EEDT) for 50 applicants of the Entrepreneurial Development Loan Program (EDLP) from Cagayan, via Zoom conference on 24 June 2021.

Officers of DTI R2-SME Development Division, namely: Mr. Michael Paggabao, OIC Division Chief, and Ms. Karen Balicha, NC Regional Account Officer, shared important concepts relative to business identification, ideas, and opportunities under the new normal.

Further, Writing Feasibility Study and Business Proposal Development were discussed by Mr. Paggabao to help the “Tulong PUSO” program beneficiaries of OWWA identify the most feasible business for them and to map out strategies in order to ensure that their business idea will be carried out successfully. Likewise, ‘Bookkeeping’ was explained by Ms. Karen Balicha to the same beneficiaries.
