Empowerment of vendors
her priority, candidate says

Former Akbayan Representative Risa Hotiveros yesterday said vendors are part of her priority agenda in promoting empowerment, especially among the marginalized sector.

Hontiveros talked with vendors associations in Bacolod City with Councilor Elcid Familiaran, former councilor Alex Paglumotan, and Bart Orola, the younger brother of former Bacolod Rep. John Orola at the Libertad Market.

Hontiveros who is running for senator, said that in the protection and promotion of women and children, vendors are part of it. She also said that women vendors when empowered and taken cared of, will be able to take care of their families too and good family relationship develops.

Hontiveros also said that she is positive that the Reproductive Health Bill has a big chance to be passed this year. She added that members of Congress should stop the delay and the presentation of killer amendments. *LTG
