Governor Yevgeny Emano has pledged continued financial support to the chicharon business of inmates at the Misamis Oriental Provincial Jail.
He has already donated P25,000 to the prisoners as additional capital for their business.
“When I tasted their chicharon for the first time, it was so delicious that I almost did not believe that they made it. So when I tasted it, I had a plan to support this initiative and make it into a sustainable livelihood for the inmates while they spend their time here,” the politiko said in Sunstar Cagayan de Oro online report dated May 10.
“We will help in any way we can, because even though they are inside a jail, they still have families outside who needs support,” the Misamis Oriental governor added.
