Kabuhayan ni Juan is a public service project that supports individuals who would like to either start or grow their business and livelihood.
The segment is part of the show's 40th anniversary celebration, hence forty people were selected.
Another version of Kabuhayan ni Juan was launched in 28 April 2020 as part of Vic Sotto's birthday wish. Instead of "Isang Lapis Isang Papel" due to the quarantine affecting schools, Bossing wished for Kabuhayan ni Juan, where he is offering collector's items, and funds will go to small businesses highly affected by the enhanced community quarantine caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
