RegionXIII-CARAGA-DAR-Agusan-Norte-Farmers-Get-Individual-TitlesFarmers shed  tears of joy after receiving their individual certificates of land ownership award (CLOAs), following the distribution ceremony recently in the barangay multi-purpose building in Carmen.

Fiftyfour farmer beneficiaries were given CLOAs covering 95 hectares of agricultural lands.

DAR Regional Director Faisar Mambuay congratulated the recipients while emphasizing the confidence it will bring if the farmer beneficiarie’s name is printed on the title.

“I hope this is just the start, as I intend to come back with more support services for the area,” said Mambuay in his message.

Mambuay encouraged the beneficiaries to stay united in their cooperative as government has changed tack in the delivery of support services, preferring to course them through farmers’ organizations.

Among the grateful recipients were 88-year old Bernadita Regner and her 62-year-old daughter Judith. Both were teary-eyed looking at their long awaited land title. The mother-daughter recipients who are farmers all their lives thanked the DAR and promised to till the land to improve their living condition.

Mambuay led the distribution to 54 farmers beneficiaries with Carmen Vice-Mayor Willy Taglocop and DAR Asst. Regional Director Andre Atega.
