It certainly felt like it when the fifty-five (55) Sari-sari Store owners from the población barangays in Tanay received grocery items worth P10,000.00 which includes a sari-sari store package such as four sacks of milled rice, and two large storage boxes each containing food and non-food products. 

Hon.

The selection of the beneficiaries was based on their business permits such as DTI Business Name Registration and barangay business permit. Each beneficiary underwent orientation and seminars that will help scale up their stores.
