The Inspiring Mang Toto: A DSWD-PPPP Beneficiary Success Story

We met Mr. Johnny Tolentino alias Mang Toto at Barangay Poblacion Hall, T'Boli, South Cotabato last May 29 during the recent National Media Tour. He is one of the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (PPPP) beneficiaries of DSWD who became successful, thanks to the monthly cash grant that beneficiaries like him receive from the government.

Starting out with only the grant of P4,000.00 from Pantawid Pamilya (PPPP) in 2009 and P10,000.00 from SEA-K,  Mang Toto ventured into vegetable farming. Fortunately, the constantly increasing demand for his farm products ensured his success as a vegetable grower. Now, he is earning a whopping  P100,000.00 a month and is currently one of the major suppliers of bell pepper in South Cotabato and even Manila. 

Mang Toto is always eager in sharing his experience and continues to inspire other Pantawid Pamilya (PPPP) beneficiaries in his town. He encourages other beneficiaries to wisely spend the money that they are receiving from the government and to never lose hope even if they are mired in poverty. Mang Toto further advises the beneficiaries to continue doing whatever it takes to give their own families whatever they need in life. Lastly, he reminded them to work as a family. In his case, he said that his wife had been helping him so much in achieving the goals and dreams of their family. 

The "rags to riches" story of Mang Toto is so moving, that the roomful of people listening to him (beneficiaries or otherwise) cannot help but be hopeful about their future, including yours truly. One can feel the atmosphere energized by the courage and optimism of this man and his success story, which all started from a little seed money courtesy of DSWD's Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (PPPP).
