Senator Cynthia Villar, in her campaign sorties around the country, pushed for the creation of more livelihood opportunities to benefit women, especially mothers who can’t afford to leave their children and the family home.
“Syempre tayong mga nanay, maraming responsibilidad sa bahay. That is why I established livelihood projects in communities na malapit lang at pwede pa nilang dalhin ang mga anak nila,” the seasoned legislator said.
Villar, mother to children Paolo, Mark and Camille, also commended working mothers who have successfully juggled their responsibilities at work and at home.

The lady senator added that the creation of livelihood projects in the communities was inspired by the mothers she had met along the way who also want to contribute to the family income.
