Sun.Star Cagayan de Oro - - Top Stories -

In­come-gen­er­at­ing ac­tiv­i­ties of in­mates in­side the Misamis Ori­en­tal Pro­vin­cial Jail and Re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion Cen­ter (MOPJ) were flour­ish­ing as the capi­tol buys their hand-made prod­ucts and pro­mote it to the pub­lic, a jail of­fi­cial said yes­ter­day.

Around 800 de­tainees are en­gag­ing into busi­ness of mak­ing chicharon, slip­pers, can­dles, rosaries, plaques, and Christ­mas lanterns.

MOPJ war­den Dom­i­nador Ta­garda said the suc­cess of the in­mates’ busi­ness is at­trib­uted to the ad­min­is­tra­tion of Gover­nor Yevgeny Emano who fi­nan­cially sup­ports the busi­ness en­deav­ors of the in­mates.

“Dili matukib ang kali­pay sa mga bini­langgo tun­god sa pag­paluyo sa gob­er­nador sa ilang pan­gi­taan (In­mates are happy be­cause of the sup­port of the govenor),”Ta­garda said.

“Gikali­pay usab nila ang su­porta as kapi­tolyo nga gapalit sa ilang pro­dukto para sa nagkadaiyang kali­hukan sa kapi­tolyo ug pag­pro­mote ni­ini sa pub­liko (They are also happy be­cause the capi­tol is buy­ing their prod­ucts and pro­mote it to the pub­lic),”he added.

Ta­garda said the prices of the in­mates’ prod­ucts ranges from P15 to P750. Christ­mas ‘Parols’ are also be­ing dis­played now at the MOPJ.

He added in­mates are con­tin­u­ously earn­ing in­come not just for them­selves for their re­spec­tive fam­i­lies.

On the other hand, Emano has com­mended the in­mates’ co­op­er­a­tive even as he make this an ex­am­ple to other co­op­er­a­tive groups in the prov­ince.

“Bisan tuod nga naa sila su­lod sa pasil­i­dad ang nanag-iya sa maong ko­op­er­at­iba, nahimo gi­hapon ni­lang makata­bang sa ilang tagsa-tagsa ka pam­ilya (Though they are in­side the de­ten­tion fa­cil­i­ties, they were still able to help their fam­i­lies),” Emano said. Al­wen Salir­ing
