CEBU CITY, Cebu, Feb. 21 (PIA) -- The Department of Labor and Employment Regional Office 7 (DOLE-7) together with the Barangay Local Government Unit (BLGU) of Catarman, Liloan, Cebu turned over the general merchandise and fishing supplies worth P374,620 to the 61-member Catarman Fishermen’s Association. 

Association President Noe Ursal thanked DOLE-7 for fulfilling the long-held dream of the fishermen and their association.

Dako ug kasingkasing namong pasalamat unang-una sa kahitas-an ug sa DOLE-7 pinaagi sa Cebu Provincial Field Office (CPFO) nga niabot gayod ang dugay na namong gipangandoy nag Kabuhayan Grant nga general merchandise and fishing supplies (Our heartfelt thanks to God and to DOLE-7 through the CPFO that they have realized our longtime dream of general merchandise and fishing supplies through the Kabuhayan Grant)," said Ursal.
