LORETO, Agusan del Sur – In its continuous commitment to aid the people in combating poverty and economic slowdown, the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) Agusan del Sur Field Office (ADSFO) released over P1 million worth of government assistance in the municipality of Loreto, Agusan del Sur.

The simultaneous activities were attended by municipal managers and officials of the local government unit of Loreto, who were thereafter introduced to the new ADSFO OIC, Buhawe Corvera-Correa. 

“The Department of Labor and Employment is always ready to serve the people. May this livelihood grant inspire you to take a leap to elevate your economic status,” Correa shared.
