The P5,000 given by BDO Foundation to the completers will serve as additional capital for their businesses and be deposited in their accounts.

This will also encourage MSMEs to practice financial literacy, which will help them save money and manage their expenses on a day-to-day basis.

Mayor Jerry P. Treñas commended the efforts of different offices, non-government agencies, and private companies for their huge support to the program.

“Congratulations to the newest batch of Uswag Negosyo Academy graduates! With each entrepreneur receiving P5,000.00 cash incentives from BDO, we’re empowering local businesses to thrive. Witnessing their growth in skills and confidence inspires our continued commitment to economic development,” Treñas said.
