With the members of AIR Transport TODA Cooperative. The association was handed another tranche as part of the Senate Majority Leader Alan Peter Cayetano’s Presyo, Trabaho, Kita (PTK) program. The senator believes that the disorder can be eliminated by inclusive growth, which he is advocating through the program.

“PTK would serve as an alternative means of livelihood that would veer people away from the seduction of crime and drugs,” said vice presidential bet and Senate Majority Leader Alan Peter Cayetano. A second tranche from the senator’s PTK (Presyo, Trabaho, Kita) program was handed to the AIR Transport TODA Cooperative in Puerto Princesa, Palawan.

Cayetano explained that his PTK program provides MSMEs access to capital and protects small entrepreneurs from 5-6 loan sharks. He said if elected in the May polls, he will expand the program to target all of the country’s regions.

“Laking pasalamat namin kay kuya Alan kasi naging source siya ng pag-asa. Hindi na talaga kami umaasa dati na may public servants pa pala na walang sawa pa ring naglilingkod,” said the association’s Chairperson, Victor Magarce.

“Mahihirapan din kasi yung mga miyembro namin sa napakalaking interes kung sa 5-6 sila manghihiram eh,” related Magarce. “Sa tulong ng PTK, makakapag-pundar na rin para sa dagdag na kita ang mga miyembro namin.”

The senator asserted that sustainable alternative livelihood programs are crucial in ending the disorder and lack of security brought by crime, particularly illegal drug trafficking.

“Sobra na ang gulo at pahirap dahil sobra ang pagkukulang ng gobyerno para tugunan ang kabuhayan ng mamamayan. Kung may sapat na oportunidad na umunlad ang lahat, walang pahirap, walang gulo,” Cayetano said.
