Nagcarlan, Laguna- 70-year-old farmer Virgilio Romulo (extreme right) from Barangay Ugong, Sta. Cruz, Laguna, recently realized his dream of owning the land he has been tilling since he was 15.
This happened after the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) awarded him an individual Certificate of Land Ownership Award (CLOA), along with 64 other farmers from the province on November 6, 2018 at the Barangay Bukal Covered Court, Nagcarlan, Laguna.
The distribution of CLOAs was headed by DAR Undersecretary Bernie Cruz (second from right) who advised the new landowners to make their lands productive with the help of support services provided by the DAR. These include farm facilities and skills training.
