The rolling store of the Pamanang Yaman, Produktong Pangasinan (PYPP) visited the town of Dasol on February 18.
The PYPP is a component of Governor Amado “Pogi” I. Espino’s socio-economic recovery program, Abig Pangasinan, which aims to help micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) recover from the adverse effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The PYPP also aims to market and promote Pangasinan-made products and delicacies across the province.
Among the Pangasinan-made products featured at the rolling store are: frozen goods such as buro, tocino, longganisa, and shanghai; dried and processed fish products; condiments like bagoong, alamang and spiced vinegar; woven products like baskets and buri bags; snacks like chips, crackers, chicharon and puto; among others.
Products sold in the rolling store of the PYPP were bought by the provincial government from the MSMEs and are sold to Pangasinenses at cost-selling or wholesale price.
Locals of Dasol thanked the provincial government for bringing the program that will not only benefit local entrepreneurs but also promote Pangasinan-made products.
“Nakatutulong ito sa amin dahil mas mura iyong mga bilihin kaysa sa ibang lugar na pinupuntahan namin at para matikman namin iyong mga produkto na nanggagaling sa ibang bayan,” said Virgelyn Rivera, one of the locals of Dasol.
The PYPP rolling store will stay beside the municipal hall of Dasol until February 19, from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm.
The PYPP program is led by the Provincial Population Cooperative, and Livelihood Development Office (PPCLDO) headed by PPCLDO Chief Ellsworth Gonzales.
