How to Apply OWWA Laundry Business

There are many programs that OWWA has launched to OFWs while working abroad. One of the businesses that OWWA offers is the Laundry Business Package. As an organization that aims to promote the welfare and interests of overseas Filipino workers (OFWs), OWWA has established this program to offer opportunities for OFWs and their families to have a sustainable source of income and one of them is setting up a Laundry Business in the Philippines.

OWWA Laundry Business is a great opportunity for OFWs and their families to enter the laundry service industry, which is in high demand both locally and internationally. Through this business, OFWs and their families can also contribute to the growth of their local community by providing quality laundry services while creating job opportunities for fellow Filipinos.

The Laundry Business Package allows you to avail a business program under the Enterprise Development Loan Program of OWWA, which includes accredited training to prove that you are capable of opening and operating a laundry business. To help those who completed the training start their laundry business with ease, OWWA has now teamed with the Land Bank to offer simple loan access!
