The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) scolds some beneficiaries of the conditional cash transfer (CCT) program for pawning off their cash cards.

Dozens of cash cards were confiscated after they were used as collateral.

In a text message to ABS-CBN News, Social Welfare Secretary Dinky Soliman said they are conducting counselling for beneficiaries to determine their reasons for pawning their cash cards.

Soliman added they are providing assistance to families who have legitimate reasons for putting up their cash cards as collateral.
