Tagbilaran City First Lady Jane Yap thanked Former House Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano’s “Sari-saring Pag-asa”, a financial program assistance for sari-sari store owners. 20 small sari-sari store owners in Tagbilaran City who were badly affected by Typhoon Odette received Php3,500 each. It is hoped that this financial assistance would help them overcome the typhoon’s damaging effects to their enterprise.

“Sari-saring Pag-asa” is a take-off from the Taguig-Pateros (TaPat) Sari-Store Program created by Taguig 2nd District Rep. Lani Cayetano where they provide financial assistance and livelihood training for sari-sari store owners in Taguig and Pateros.
