ReP title:
Development of a Partnership for Bangus Contract Growing (Most Citizen-Centric ReP)
Engr. Nenita L. Barroso continues to successfully uphold the position of Provincial Director of the Department of Trade and Industry for Region XII, also known as SOCCSKSARGEN.

Leaving a great impact to the lives of the project’s stakeholders, her ReP was awarded as the Most Citizen-Centric of her batch. It continues to be implemented actively, being recognized as one of the priority projects of her agency.

Her ReP has also gained some value-adding features such as bottled bangus as a product. This unexpected development has generated new jobs for the wives of the fisherfolk who are still now involved with the ReP as beneficiaries. They are now undergoing product label training to further grow the newly discovered business venture.
