Manulife partners with PBSP for livelihood project-A A +A
Thursday, August 7, 2014
MANULIFE Philippines, one of the country’s leading life insurance firms, has extended support to areas affected by Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) through a livelihood project done in partnership with the Philippine Business for Social Progress (PBSP).
The project aims to support around 75 families in Leyte by providing business skills training and the initial retail inventory for starting up their own “sari-sari” stores.
Manulife believes that the program will help survivors in Leyte re-build and move forward from the aftermath of Yolanda. This is part of Manulife Philippines' continuing commitment to give back to the communities in order to help improve the quality of life of Filipinos.
