The economic activity at Jagna had catapulted over the years and alongside its success were the micro-entrepreneurs who actively promoted Jagna’s culture and quality products.
Last September 23, the town officially opened its 3rdTabosaJagna which is an Agri-Trade Fair and Exhibit which showcases agricultural products from different barangays within the municipality and other entrepreneurs from other parts of the province. The said activity is also in line with its upcoming Foundation Day and Fiesta celebration.
The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) had always supported the livelihood projects of Jagna which are mostly based on food processing.
In fact, DOLE-assisted projects in the said municipality were always featured or nominated to represent Bohol and Central Visayas in awarding or recognition ceremonies organized by DOLE.
During the TabosaJagna, various associations were invited to exhibit their products with other commercial and agricultural exhibitors. Associations within the municipality showcased their Calamay, Salabat, Polvoron, Tableya, Longganisa, chips, cookies, and noodles among others. With customers coming from different places, the associations did not just show and promote the products, but also earned some income from the exhibit.
Mayor BicbicAbrenilla expressed his gratitude to the Department of Labor and Employment and to Guidaben for helping financially the Jagnaanon micro-entrepreneurs.(AdahPizana)
