Insufficient Family Income

Poverty threshold or poverty line is the minimum income required for a family or individual to meet the basic household needs. According to the 2015 Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) data, a minimum of 9,064 php is needed on a monthly basis to meet both basic food and non-food requirements of a Filipino family with 5 members having a budget of 1,813 php for each member. The national goal is to lower the percentage of family below poverty threshold to 17.2%. Based on the initial survey conducted in Brgy. Bag-Ong Dalaguete last January 2018, 50 % of the families are below the poverty threshold. Portraying a family that struggles in being able to provide the basic necessities needed for their members.

"DOLE Certified: Bag-Ong Dalaguete Livelihood Organization"


"TESDA Training: Manicure & Pedicure"

To be able to provide the basic food and non food needs of a family with 5 members, they must have a combined family income of 10,481pesos - PSA 2019.

This is the primary reason why the BAG-ONG DALAGUETE LIVELIHOOD ORGANIZATION (BDLO) was created. The organization aims to teach its members new skills and knowledge on different income generating activities through different TESDA community based trainings like MANICURE and PEDICURE training. The new skill will help augment their family income and make it sufficient enough to provide for their BASIC NEEDS and BASIC HEALTHCARE NEEDS of the family.

Big thanks to Master trainer in Manicure/ pedicure Sir Giovanni Locaban and to Ma'am Fronie Dalid the supervising TESDA specialist for the time, knowledge, skills and motivation they shared to our community people.
