• Goldberg in Leyte Gulf landing anniversary


    UNITED States Ambassador to the Philippines Philip Goldberg will visit Palo, Leyte tomorrow to join in the commemoration of the 70th Leyte Gulf landing anniversary.

    While in Leyte, Goldberg will also preside in the inauguration of projects that support rehabilitation efforts in areas devastated by typhoon Yolanda.

    He will visit Barangay Poblacion where he will turn over 36 sari-sari stores reconstructed and restocked through the initiatives of United States Agency for International Development (Usaid) along with Coca-Cola and Procter & Gamble.

    Goldberg will also announce the establishment of the micro enterprise disaster assistance fund for resiliency, implemented in partnership with Philippine Business for Social Progress.

    This P176 million credit facility will enable eligible entrepreneurs from Yolanda-hit communities to borrow money to establish or expand their micro enterprises.
