THE Batangas City Grand Terminal conducted a one-day livelihood seminar entitled “Serbisyo at Kabuhayan Para sa Kababaihan: An Actual Perfume-Making,” held on March 24, 2023, at Batangas City Grand Terminal, Barangay Alangilan, Batangas City.
Thirty women from different barangays of Batangas City were selected to participate in the training. They were given hands-on experience with the proper techniques in perfume making. The training was designed to provide women with necessary skills to start their small perfume businesses, which can serve as a source of livelihood for them and their families.

I am happy and thankful to the management of Batangas City Grand Terminal for hosting a training like this. Indeed, the management is not just here to do business, but also supports different advocacies to help people thrive and succeed,” Beverly Leyesa shared.
