Sustainable livelihood program

Sustainable livelihood program refers to the livelihood and capability building program managed by the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) for the poor, vulnerable and marginalized families and individuals to help improve their socioeconomic conditions. The one-time livelihood assistance is in the form of microenterprise development (MD) and employment facilitation (EF). The MD track provides microenterprise interventions to the poor or savings generation while the EF track provides interventions that facilitate employment. (Sec. 3(n), R.A. No. 11310)
