Dagupan City Mayor Belen Fernandez called on barangay health workers (BHW) to take care of their finances.
The Pangasinan politiko lamented that ever since she was able to increase BHWs allowance from P1,000 to P1,900, some BHWs have gotten into the practice of loaning their income to other people.
“I personally will manage the distribution for the next few months I increase your allowance to help you but I don’t want you to be involved in 5-6,” she said.
“I’m discouraging 5-6 to our employees. Spend only what you need and within our means,” Fernandez added
Fernandez also explained to the BHWs the importance of taking care of their credit lines.
“I want everyone to stop the practice. You lost 40% of your income in one year,” she said.
