The Taguig City government, in collaboration with Senator Pia Cayetano and the Department of Social Welfare and Development, has organized a financial assistance distribution for vendors who are beneficiaries of the Assistance to Individuals in Crisis Situation (AICS) program. 

The payout was held at Dueñas Gymnasium in Barangay Central Signal over the weekend, whereby at least 3,000 vendors from Districts 1 and 2 received their AICS assistance.

Mayor Laarni Cayetano expressed gratitude to Senator Pia for the support and emphasized the importance of assisting hardworking vendors who have always been diligent and self-reliant. 

“Senator Pia Cayetano’s office aims to support hardworking vendors in Taguig City,” the mayor said.

When national government officials request assistance from local government units, Mayor Cayetano carefully selects beneficiaries from various sectors, ensuring that those who demonstrate diligence will benefit. She believes it’s beneficial to help those who help themselves.

The vendors expressed their appreciation and gratitude to Mayor Lani and to the lady senator. 

Recently, the Jeepney Operators and Drivers Association (JODA) in Taguig also received similar financial assistance from the local government.

About 2,000 jeepney drivers and operators from Districts 1 and 2 received financial assistance.
