Philippines provides funding for female coconut biodiesel workers

June 17, 2021 |

In the Philippines, the Business Mirror newspaper reports the Department of Labor and Employment has decided to provide further support to women working in the coconut-based biofuels industry through one-time financial payments for maternity as well as payments in case of death, with an add-on if the death is brought about by or worsened by COVID. Some funding for start-up capital will also be made available for female feedstock processing workers. Funding for the support programs comes from a levy on coconut-based biodiesel.
