DAR AgSur distributes 425 hectares to Esperanza Farmers

piaPROSPERIDAD, Agusan del Sur, Apr. 21 (PIA) – The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) here has distributed 273 individual titles to the Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries (ARBs) of Brgy. Nato, Esperanza recently. The titles covered 425 hectares land.

The issuance of titles or Certificates of Land Ownership Award (CLOAs) was held during the Barangay General Assembly where projects for Bottom-up Budget (BUB) fund were identified.    

The titles were handed over by Provincial Agrarian Reform Program Officer I (PARPO I) Allan N. Mundalla assisted by Municipal Agrarian Reform Program Officers Chito C. Tubin and Amancio C. Boquilon, Jr. and the municipal and barangay officials of the said place.

“Land ownership is a privilege because not everyone had the opportunity to own a land,” PARPO Mundala said. “Once you received your titles, do not forget your obligations as Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries.  You should continue to cultivate, nurture and make it productive,” he reminded the ARBs.

“For many years, we have been waiting for the titles. With this, we will be inspired to work hard to make our land more productive. Mapasalamaton kami sa DAR og sa atong Local Government Unit,” Marlon Gonzales, one of the ARBs happily said. (Kristine Pedralvez, DAR-Agusan del Sur/PIA-Agusan del Sur)
