We will support 200 small business damaged by the devastation caused by Typhoon Vamco in our project areas affected before by the eruption of Taal Volcano. Most often small business such as food vending, small grocery store, raising of animals such as pigs and chickens and vegetable gardening are destroyed by floodwaters and this needs to be revived soonest since this is often the only lifeline for poor families.
The massive flooding caused by Typhoon Vamco with floodwaters as high as the roof of houses has caused devastation of much of small businesses that most often are the only source of income for poor, struggling entrepreneurs. We will provide them with direct cash assistance in order for them to quickly recover. We will be prioritizing women-led businesses in this effort.
Providing cash assistance so that affected entrepreneurs will be able to recover quickly will help save lives and livelihood. This is the most effective way in disaster recovery during this time.
The well-being of local entrepreneurs who most often are the most disadvantaged as the result of massive flooding caused by Typhoon Vamco is most needed as their livelihood is the only means for their survival.
