At least 86,000 medium, small and micro enterprises (MSMEs) received P3 billion worth of assistance in the last two years, President Rodrigo Duterte said during his fourth State of the Nation Address.
“86,000 MSMEs have received over P3 billion worth of loans since 2017, thanks to Secretary [Ramon] Lopez and the DTI,” Duterte said.
Duterte also cited the passage into law of additional benefits for solo parents, as well as the proposed expansion of the Malasakit Center, which is a one-stop shop for the public who seeks medical aid from government.
“‘Yung expansion ng Malasakit centers, that is also what we want to achieve…the original concept of Bong Go, para manalo sa kampanya,” Duterte said.
Go served as a longtime aide of Duterte before he won a Senate seat in the May polls.
“Totohanin natin ‘yan, Bong, kung hindi, mapapahiya tayo,” Duterte added. —LDF, GMA News
