TINOC, Ifugao – The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) recently turned-over a P5.014 million worth of post-harvest facility (PHF) to the Kalanguya Cultural Community Multi-Purpose Cooperative (KCCMPC) to boost their agricultural products.
Assistant Regional Director Robert Ampaguey said the warehouse measures 240 square meters and has a capacity of 10,000 cavans with an 84 square meter office space, for the smooth business transactions of the cooperative.
“This facility, implemented under the Agrarian Reform Infrastructure Support Project III and funded by the Japan Bank for International Cooperation (JICA) is a great help to the farmer-beneficiaries and cooperatives’ agricultural products,” Ampaguey said.
During the turn-over, Governor Pedro Mayam-o congratulated the members of the cooperative saying that through cooperative, they were able to humble themselves and help one another. He also urged the members of the cooperative of their corporate responsibilities for them to be the role model in the community.
Mayor Marcelo Catalino, on the other hand, reminded the farmer-beneficiaries that the building should be properly utilized, maintained and made productive to uplift their lives.
The KCCMPC’s facility, with 1,197 membership, would be managed by Mr. Agustin C. Calya-en as the manager and Ms. Joan Jovita Uyba-an as the Chair of the Board of Directors.
The coop achieved the highest level (5th level) in cooperative maturity. (Leticia Laoagan)
