FOOD PROCESSING. Staff from the Negros Occidental Technology Livelihood Development Center teach members of various associations in San Carlos City how to make banana chips, banana brittle and peanut butter.

The city government through the Cooperatives and Livelihood Development Office (CLDO) provided skills training on banana and peanut processing to association members in San Carlos City on May 28 in Brgy. Prosperidad public market.

The 25 participants were members of farmer associations in Barangay Nataban, Agbulod Farmers Association of Barangay Prosperidad, Paglaum Vendors Association of Barangay Five, and a person with disabilities from Brgy. Quezon.

The CLDO facilitated the training as Beachie Pearl Mendieta and Rosmarie Veloso of the Technology Livelihood Development Center (TLDC) in Negros Occidental Province taught the attendees the procedures for making banana chips, banana brittle and peanut butter.

Cooperative Development Specialist II Grace Nequinto encouraged participants to focus on building sustainable livelihoods and providing more income to their members through the products they sold.

Local TLDC coordinator Raul De Arce said they conducted a training needs analysis among associations and chose banana and peanut processing due to the availability of raw materials in the area.

Barangay Prosperidad Kagawad Mario Masaba Sr., Department of Livelihood and Entrepreneurship Development, designated supervisor Vicky Tribunalo, and other CLDO personnel were present during the training. (PR)
