Anda Mayor Metodio “Dodong” Amper told dyRD’s Inyong Alagad program that the since after the installation of the ATM machine, he noticed an increase in the money circulation of the town’s commercial district which lately has been focused in tourism. He said resorts owners noticed tourists now staying longer at their respective resorts. Unlike before when tourists have to cut short their stay in Anda since there was no ATM machine available for them to encash.
