Akbayan Rep Mayong Aguja graced the graduation ceremonies of the Usad Negosyo program last Friday, May 12, 2006 at the QC City Hall. The said project is a joint undertaking of the Quezon City Government, Enterpreneurs School of Asia and Akbayan Citizens’ Action Party.

Eighty Four Quezon City residents were selected for the program based on submitted business proposals for small scale enterprises. Through the project, the beneficiaries received training for business management and a minimum capital to launch their businesses. The participants made proposals for production and sale of homemade peanut butter and other food products, eatery, dry goods and retail store, among others.

Cong, Mayong lauded the graduates for taking courage in starting their own businesses. “I know going back to school, and learning from those younger than us was not easy”, he said in Filipino. He encouraged the new entrepreneurs to utilize their new-found knowledge and skills, and help enliven the economy. “By developing your businesses, you are not only gaining additional income for your family, but also invigorating our economy”, Cong Mayong added.

Also in the commencement were Quezon City Mayor Sonny Belmonte, and Entrepreneurs School of Asia president Vivienne Tan.
