By Ralph John Mijares and Edalyn Acta

ROXAS CITY — The Capiz State University (CAPSU) is extending its services to those who seek livelihood opportunities.

The school through its Research, Development, and Expansion Office is providing research work from the students and faculty for livelihood endeavors.

The research and development center is focused on crop science, social science and industrial technology, food and fishery, and livestock.

While some research outputs have patents that came with a royalty fee, other outputs are being used freely to help people.

Aspiring businessmen can undergo classes on production, management, financial planning, and marketing to help them run their business.

Moreover, CAPSU can help refer aspiring businessmen to funding agencies.

Agenda meetings are also conducted with the private and public sectors to know possible research subjects that tackle the needs of the community.

Mark Villamor, Intellectual Property Management Office officer-in-charge of CAPSU Dayao, said the poor, out of school youth, housewives who have no source of income will be prioritized in the program.

Those who want to put up a business can apply by going to a CAPSU campus.

Those who will be included in the first and second batches will get the training for free, but there will be a course fee in the succeeding batches.*
