Spearheaded by City Mayor Sitti Djalia A. Turabin-Hataman in collaboration with VISA Foundation and Asia Foundation, the City Government of Isabela de Basilan conducted a 5-Day Training of Trainers for VISA Accelerate program at Joveth’s Eatery, February 7, 2022.
The said program was designed to promote inclusive economic growth through the support of women-led small and micro-business (SMBs) in the Philippines as women are disproportionately impacted by the pandemic, particularly in terms of lost economic opportunities and increased caregiving responsibilities. The initiative was also led to increase the financial, business, digital skills, and engagement in online marketplaces as it is critical in advancing women’s economic empowerment and the generating economic growth.
The participants were selected personnel from the Local Economic Development and Investment Promotions Office (LEDIPO) and Public Employment Services Office (PESO).
