ANGELES CITY—Products made by detainees or persons deprived of liberty (PDL) at the city jail here will be on sale at the One Town One Product (OTOP) Store.
The items on sale made by the prisoners included purses, wallets, sling bags, and bonsai wire trees.
“Matagal nang gumagawa ng mga beaded bags ang mga inmates at ngayong taon naisipan namin na gumawa din ng bonsai wire tree kung saan pwede i-display ng mga bibili,” said city jail warden Cecilia Tamayo.
“Sa pamamag-itan ng pagbebenta namin, nagkakaroon ng income and mga inmates at nagagamit ang mga kinikita namin sa mga activities na ginagawa namin sa loob” she added.
In order to provide additional funding for the female dormitories at the Angeles City district jail, the city’s jail authorities partnered with OTOP.
Mayor Carmelo Lazatin, Jr. intends to boost the city’s promotion of its home-made goods.
One of Lazatin, Jr.’s top priorities is the OTOP shop, which is operated by the Angeles City Government through the supervision of Executive Assistant IV Reina Manuel and is intended to assist MSMEs in overcoming the changes brought by the pandemic.
