The Department of Social Welfare and Development will conduct an on-the-spot inventory of Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program or 4Ps cash cards in the whole of Negros Occidental, as an offshoot of the recovery of 67 pawned cash cards in Barangay Banago, Bacolod City, recently.
Dionela Flores-Madrona, Negros Occidental provincial operations head of DSWD 4Ps, found out that of the 67 cash cards pawned to a loan shark in Barangay Banago, four are owned by beneficiaries from Barangay Mandalagan, and one from Silay City, also in Negros Occidental.
