Serbisyo Para Sa Mobile Vendors
Nego-Kart Nego-Kart (Negosyo sa Kariton) is a project for ambulant vendors on major cities of the country. The project will assist the ambulant vendors in making their existing livelihood undertakings grow into profitable and sustainable business; thus, making their income level at par with that of the minimum wage earners, at the least.
The Nego-Kart project will provide the ambulant vendors with service/assistance that will enable them to increase, upgrade and/or diversity their products or services and market these to greater number of buyers or customers. The service/assistance is as follows:
- Acquisition of a vending cart and accessory livelihood tools;
- Provision of working capital for procurement or production of marketable goods or services (raw materials and other inputs);
- Trainings on production skills, entrepreneurship and business management; and
- Business permit to operate in designated area. The ambulant vendors will be assisted in forming their organization that will promote mutual aid and protection such as collective savings mobilization for social protection coverage under SSS/PhilHealth and others common concerns.
Target Areas and Clients
The Nego-Kart project will be implemented in major cities of the country with heavy concentration or large number of ambulant vendors. It will cater to ambulant vendors of legal age who trade their goods or services without the necessary market business permits in sidewalks, buses, community market places and other public places.
The Nego-Kart project will be implemented by the DOLE in partnership with the LGUs, private sector and other interested parties which shall co-share the provision of the aforesaid service/assistance. Any of the DOLE partners may serve as the Accredited Co-Partner (ACP) in the Implementation of the project.
