Cabahug added that the second availment of the BuB fund will also be used to support the Pasalubong Negosyo Center and skills training on wood mosaic and product development of small-medium enterprises (SMEs).
A 3rd class municipality, Bagac is the first town in the 2nd district to establish the Negosyo Center, beating the 1st class municipalities of Mariveles and Limay; the 4th in the whole province and the 34th in Region 3.
Mayor Del Rosario, who took the challenge, in his message at the launching of the Negosyo Center said that he believes that the establishment of the Negosyo Center in his town will boost the capability of his 400 micro entrepreneurs to further improve their products for wider marketability.
Congressman Joet Garcia (2nd district representative) on the other hand, said that the Negosyo Center will pave the way for Bagac to be the gateway for tourists with their world class resorts like Las Casas, wherein these tourists will bring home Bagac’s famous products like kasoy nuts, cashew-butter and others.
Likewise, DTI Regional Director for Region 3, Judith Angeles takes pride that though Bagac is a 3rd class municipality, she saw the vision of Mayor del Rosario to really help his constituents-entrepreneurs to improve their lives and at the same time economically contribute to the municipality’s coffer.
